David is definitely the highlight and is worth is ticket. As it was winter, there was a smaller crowd which made it easier to enjoy the sculpture from the different angles

Excellent place that I did not get to see because the tickets were sold out... It was terrible to know that; very disappointed.

The Academia Gallery is not so impressive from the outside. But impressive from the inside. David is the highlight of the visit, you can plan an one hour visit there.

So really the only reason to come here is for Michelangelo's David and his uncompleted sculptures of slaves. David was amazing as expected but the slaves were an unexpected treat. Though uncompleted, there are almost eery in how it looks as though they are attempting...More

My husband and I visited the Accademia Gallery during a group tour. I recommend purchasing “skip the line” tickets. We walked right into the place. Seeing the David was an experience I won’t soon forget.

Galleria dell'Accademia, the museum who has Michelangelo’s David, truly magnificent. You do not need to be into classic art to appreciate this statue. The museum has many other fantastic works worth seeing on their own, the presents of David does overwhelm them.

I took a day trip to Florence from Rome and briefly visited the Accademia Gallery. Michaelangelo's David is stunning in person. An amazing piece of art.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A

You can, but I would highly recommend not waiting. We were there in mid October at 8:15 in the morning and the line was already half a block long.

I did not use a tour service. I got a Firenze Card. Not knowing any better, and having been told I should do so, I also reserved a spot/time online. This was a waste of money. When I showed up for my time at the ticket... More
