The sight of David in the Accademia is so much more satisfying than seeing the copy in the Piazza della Signoria. Quite often when traveling there are objects of art that you have on your bucket list to see. But David is just so much more. It's quite an experience as he is so large and perfectly sculpted.
The Accademia has several other Michelangelo sculptures, a whole room of statues by other sculptors (which was roped off) an instrument section and an upper floor of illuminated manuscripts & ubiquitous Madonna & Child paintings. However, it is really quite a small museum.
We had Ufizzi memberships so we only had to wait a few minutes and bypassed the lineup.
