Our primary reason for visiting, was for the David. If you're looking for an expansive gallery to spend all afternoon in, this probably isn't it (I'd recommend the Uffizi). However, this gallery is perfect if you'd like to soak up a little artwork and enjoy...More

Our tour already had purchase tickets ahead of time. This meant we did not have to wait in line. The museum is small and packed with people. Also, the place gets hot since there is no AC. Very hard to take in the beauty of...More

We went on a Thursday afternoon late. About 2 hours before closing. Didn't have the advised advance tickets. Line took about twenty minutes in the shade. Not bad. Found out the gallery is open late on Thursday. Cool. Went to see David. It felt like...More

This small museum will require a wait, but David really is one of the most beautiful sculptures ever crafted by humankind. The Slaves are an uncommon insight into the process and techniques of a Renaissance master, and should be considered equally. Do not miss this!

Totally worth it and make sure to take some time to enjoy the works inside. The David alone is worth the price of admission.

I'm going to make this very easy, you cannot visit Florence without seeing arguably the greatest statue ever created. David is a complete masterpiece that must be seen. But to do so you have to be prepared if you don't want to queue. First things...More

Of course the main attraction is David but there are many beautiful sculptures and paintings here. I must admit that I spent most of my time staring at the fine details of the statue. The line can get quite long so be prepared.

Not too much else inside is worth spending time on, but it is worth it to see David up close. Tickets ahead of time makes the wait time in line very short.

How do you review a museum that has the David but is noisy, hot, poorly lighted and chaotic? There were also some beautiful paintings from Florentine churches but some were difficult to see because of the poor lighting. In the music section there are Stradivari...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 think so, try early before they open. Also there are people out side of the museum selling skip the line tickets, you may pay more, but that will definitely get you in!

Any time in the year there are long lines. It is better to buy the tickets in advance.
