Built to house the David, the unfinished michalangelos leading up to it aren't overwhelmed. Sadly, most tourists don't go anywhere else in the museum but a wander around the other rooms is utterly rewarding.

The gallery is great. To see Michelangelo's statue of David have queued to enter about 90 minutes, not book tickets, but it was wonderful. Michelangelo's achievement is the highest class.

The statue of David is astonishing! The Accademia Gallery is filled with so many amazing pieces of artwork. Absolutely filled with history and very intriguing pieces of art. If you thought that taking photos of the Statue of David is forbidden, think again! You are...More

The Academie explores the different styles in religious iconography mostly from the 1400's through 1700's, some art pre-dating the actual founding of the Academie. Also included prized instrument collection and exploration of pianoforte creation.

The AG and David were all that I had hoped. Unfortunately, since I did not purchase tickets in advance, I had to go without my partner. This attraction is perpetually crowded. Word to the wise - go online and purchase in advance.

Not an art or museum freak but the admission is worth going . Plaster section interesting too but every goes to see "David " and he doesn't disappoint .

No lines, no crowds, what a great time to see all of this museum. Of course, David, is incredible but take time to view and listen about the sculptures along the way. The story is fascinating

Totally worth it just to see David. The way this sculpture was displayed certainly highlights the genius of Michelangelo. Other unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo display his skill with figures emerging from the stone. 100% worth visiting.

The David is amazing. That is the highlight of this museum. The Tree of Life is another. We did an audio tour which was not extensive but ok.

There are only 3 rooms inside however for David it is absolutely worth visiting. Apart from the David there are some beautiful paintings as well. Great experience.

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

We didn't use the restroom but I think they must have one that's accessible. They seem careful about everything else. They have employees working at the entry to the actual museum and they will definitely make sure you can... More
