Make no mistake: go to the Galleria dell'Accademia to see David, and if you are a musician, go to see musical instrument museum. However, in the same way I say "if you are a musician ..." I think I need to say the same thing...More

It would be hard to design a less user friendly access to a great collection. This is a disgrace to Florentine claims to tourism. Reserved tickets are a joke (45 minute wait from the reserved time). Entrance is arbitrary. Patrons are yahoos for the most...More

First, beware the guided tours offered outside, as they are charlatans (even with their badges). A family of four, we were offered a tour for 120 euros and of course declined, and we entered through the normal queue and paid 20 euros. Second, the staff...More

This is an amazing place to visit. The single most valuable piece of art work that really makes the Gallery what it is, is Michelangelo's David. Everything else is just irrelevant. Of course this is not to minimise or ignore the artistic worth of other...More

It's a fairly small museum compared to Uffizi or Pitti, but they've got David. Don't skip this museum. If there's one thing you'll remember after your visit in Florence it will be this statue. We opted for a group tour, booked our tickets the evening...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
