Seeing the famous statue of David is the main reason for visiting the museum. It is a wonderful sight to see. People without a reservation likely had a 3+ hour wait. But we had our hotel get a reservation for us for a 3 euro...More

There is really no other reason to go. The rest of the museum is disappointing and therefore 30mins or so is really enough here. Shame they charge so much for one major work of art.

Even for those that do not understand much about art it is worth visiting the Galleria dell’Accademia to see few sculptures of Michelangelo among other works of art. It took us around 2 hours to see everything, as it is not very big. We also...More

This was the first thing we did in Florence and we were not disappointed. We are not art people but who would not want to see the real David? Definitely worth the price to experience the art.

We walked straight in with no queue at about 9.30am and there was no crowd around David or the Prisoners but an hour later when we wandered back through to the music gallery it was jammed full of tour groups. So much nicer when uncrowded....More

Visited on a Saturday morning. Used the Firenzecard to skip the line. The David was the main attraction, and it is impressive, but the gallery has other pieces of art worth your attention.

You won't find a more impressive statue than Davids by Michelangelo..period. Hell this is the best ever work that I saw in my time in Italy. The detailing on this work is mind blowing. Be ready for 100s of people who will be hoarding around...More

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

I would suggest that you look at options on Viator. Or be in the queue very early.
