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

Like so many other art galleries in Italy, this is incredible. A highlight is Michelangelo's David. There is also Michelangelo's Pieta from Palestrina and a variety of other amazing artwork. Like other popular galleries, expect massive crowds.

This is definitely a skip-the-line attraction. We probably saved 30 minutes of waiting by ordering our ticket ahead. But if you do that, make sure you redeem your "voucher" at #51, just down the street. We queued 10 minutes just to find that we needed...More

You cannot miss this, beautiful works including unfinished sculptures by Michaelangelo. Of course David speaks for itself. Simply the most beautiful man in the world.

You can't visit Florence without going to see David. We purchased skip the line tickets that reduced the wait time - worth the $$$.

Luckily we bought a museum pass so our wait was 30-40 minutes and once insides, basically there is the statue of David (amazing) but in my opinion, very little else. Lots of religious art, a room of wonderful sculptures and that's it.

We went here late in the day - about 4:30 and had about a 5 min wait to enter. 8 euros per person to enter, but worth it to spend even a few minutes admiring Michelangelos “David”, along with several of his unfinished works. I...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

Stop being tight. Its 16 euros and you get to see one of the greatest statues in history.
