Home of Michael Angelo's David but not much more apart from that. The rest of the sculptures are mainly casts and not originals and the paintings are all of a religious theme and not that many. The musical instruments museum housed in the same building...More

View the incredible David at the Accademia. A much smaller museum than the Ufuzzi, can be seen in an hour. Buy your tickets on-line and skip the line.

Tucked away down a side street, the inside is much bigger than it looks on the outside and houses many amazing pieces of sculptures. David is truly amazing in the flesh :)

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.

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

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

It seemed pretty accessible for people with disabilities and there were lines but the jump the line tickets worked very well for us hope that helps.
