Overall the paintings are amazing no doubt, but there's no diversity and if you visit this gallery after absorbing other middle age art, then you will just get tired of it. the sculpturs are amazing though.

We visited in mid-September and had about a one-hour wait to get tickets and enter. Not bad at all. All of a sudden we were inside and found ourselves winding our way toward Michelangelo's David. I was unprepared for the power of this figure. One...More

We started with the sculptures, but best to start with the paintings; start early in the morning before the crowds and group tours begin filtering in. Fabulous art/paintings and beautiful colours on the 14th and 15th century paintings.. The sculptures do go on an on,...More

Yes it’s all about david. Everything else is just by-the-way. Try to go around 5pm when it’s less crowded. You can sit at the bench beside david for one hour to admire him

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
