“Nice”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Enjoyed the David statue, going in Feb we did not need to do any advance booking so we wait for about 10-15 minutes before we went inside. Must go see for David

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Was awe inspiring! Luckily it was off peak so only took us 15 minutes to get inside the Accademia and we enjoyed the view of David statue. Definitely worth seeing!

“amamzing to see”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

I was not impressed with the Academia itself; there is only so much byzantine art one can look at! But seeing the David in person was pretty incredible. The statue is so much larger in person than both in size and in presence than you can understand from photos. I recommend seeing the David, but make reservations for the Academia so that you don't spend hours waiting in line to see it.
