So everyone obviously goes to see Michelangelo’s David but there is so much more to this gallery.

Pre book your tickets, get there early and take in the full range of exhibits and attractions in offer.

Wonderful gallery. The David is the highlight for sure, but there are other interesting things to see as well. We booked our tickets with a tour, so were able to get in a bit quicker and have someone explaining what we were seeing. I would recommend this to avoid waiting in the long lines. Definitely make sure to tour this gallery when in Florence.

We went early on Sunday, so we beat the tour buses and other crowds. The David is all they say -- possibly the world's greatest sculpture. The rest of the collection is decent as well.

I enjoyed the accademia gallery and would recommend this to anyone. My favorite part was seeing all the busts of the women from long ago with their different hairstyles and how they had changed over time. This was certainly a great place to visit and affordable and easy with our Firenzi card.
