Go early in the morning to avoid the queues. Lot of religious artwork which can become tiresome after visiting a lot of Italian museums and galleries. I preferred the sculptures however most were plaster copies of originals.

We bought our tickets online and that helped a lot. Our number one thing to see was The David. It is just inside the first hall. I like that. The art was beautiful, I could have stayed for hours. Must see!

More than just the David. Worth buying skip the line tickets. Very busy but could still get close Easy to do together with Uffizzi Gallery

The highlight is the original DAVID, after seeing assorted open-air copies. The statue is of course magnificent, and you can get a 360 view easily. The remainder of the collection is small, highlighted by the collection of busts. Purchase the 'Skip the Line' advance ticket...More

David is truly beautiful and amazing -- a very emotional experience to see him, at least for me. Very crowded at Accademia with long lines to get in, so suggest that you go on a group tour as they are allowed to cut in line....More

The Accademia is an amazing museum. Prior to the visit I thought the museum focused mainly on sculpture, however there were many beautiful paintings as well!! If you've been to the Uffizi, this museum is much smaller. It took me about 1.5 hours to get...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

We didn't use the restroom but I think they must have one that's accessible. They seem careful about everything else. They have employees working at the entry to the actual museum and they will definitely make sure you can... More
