Anyone that kinda likes art will be impressed with the David, and if you are able to get a tour guide do it, it make it much more interesting.

Imagine that you can see the original sculpture of David !
Alone this masterwork of Michelangelo is a treat. You never can believe that out of stone ( marble) a master can produce such a wonderful sculptor.
Beside of David there are several other fine sculptures from different masters of the time. A must see location!

VERY CROWDED! Get your tickets in advance! Its best to go early in the morning before the real crowds come in. They let in about 600 people an hour!

Just breathtaking. Seeing the “real” David was just mesmerizing...an amazing experience. Well worth the wait!

Very few pieces of art get the exposure and glamour statue of David by Michelangelo gets in the academy gallery. Statue of David occupies the central part of big hall of the building. The sculpture is beautifully lit and delivers stunning and unforgettable impression.
The unfinished pieces by Michelangelo and his co-workers complement the experience.
The exposition of musical instruments also deserves a visit where one can admire original instruments by Antonio Stradivari.
