First, beware the guided tours offered outside, as they are charlatans (even with their badges). A family of four, we were offered a tour for 120 euros and of course declined, and we entered through the normal queue and paid 20 euros. Second, the staff...More

This is an amazing place to visit. The single most valuable piece of art work that really makes the Gallery what it is, is Michelangelo's David. Everything else is just irrelevant. Of course this is not to minimise or ignore the artistic worth of other...More

It's a fairly small museum compared to Uffizi or Pitti, but they've got David. Don't skip this museum. If there's one thing you'll remember after your visit in Florence it will be this statue. We opted for a group tour, booked our tickets the evening...More

The David, which is located in the Accademia, was the main attraction that I wanted to see during my visit to Florence. The David is fabulous and is awe inspiring. The other items that I enjoyed viewing in the Accademia were the unfinished pieces of...More

We had the Firenze Pass (see pic) so were able to avoid the even longer wait. It's worth the price if you plan to see three or more attractions in Florence. As it was, we were in line approximately 30 minutes before getting in to...More

Worth seeing and doing a private tour to avoid the crazy lines to get in. Lots to see inside and the Statue of David is truly amazing to see up close.

As part of a guided walking tour of Florence, we began at the Accademia. Because we were with a guide, we had access to the museum before it was open to the public and were able to see the David without waiting in line or...More

Of course, everyone wants to see the David statue when they arrive in Florence, and it certainly is the centerpiece of the museum. But there is so much more to the academy than just the one statue. About half the museum focuses on sculpture, and...More

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
