Great place, not too large. There was a nice exhibition going on at the time. The obvious big draw is Michaelangelo's David. It's as good as advertised. You can't go to Florence without going here.

A brilliant gallery- don't just rush to David- take time to view his incomplete work on the walk up-to-date you will see the chisel work and effort that would have had to go in to the 5m beautiful David statue. Note the detail of veins...More

The greatest statue in the world is found here in the Academia and it really doesn't disappoint, you can get really up close to 'David' and when you do you just marvel at the detail in this fantastic piece of art. There is also a...More

This was an ok gallery and if it wasn't for the David it certainly wouldn't get away with charging so much. There are some nice items but David is the draw card. If your not desperate to see David I wouldn't bother.

Yes, you can see one of the best work in human history (The David) but all the rest looks nothing compared to it. Not enough attractions for the paid price. The "Museum of fabric" consists of 3 small rooms. The "Museum of music" had some...More

David is definitely the highlight. A shjort visit, under an hour, but well worth it. We went in the morning and it was not very crowded. The Michelangelo pieces before the David are very interesting, often unfinished and represent his less known pieces

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

It's not worth 20 to skip the line. Just get there early. To answer your question, no. There are 2 different lines.
