Just plan to spend a couple hours roaming and learning, and - of course - seeing "David". Getting tickets in advance is very helpful and saves time - starting early in the day is good, too.

We were just about first in line as they opened so the line skipper sales people had nothing to offer us. Waited about 15 minutes and we got in. We didn't feel rushed and had the privilege of being more intent on reading and visiting...More

I admit that the main reason we visited was to see The David. My husband had never been to Italy so this was important to us. Luckily, a visitor stumbles upon this magnificent piece shortly after entering. It occupies the perfect space. I learned Michelangelo...More

We bought "skip the queue" tickets and it still took an hour to get in. Before you queue (and you will), don't be fooled by the sign that says "reserved tickets" you have to go to a doorway on the opposite side of the road...More

This was a fantastic stop on our tour of Florence. The positioning of the David sculpture at the end of the hall was stunning. He was elevated and easily seen despite the crowds. We bought our tickets the day before and had a short wait...More

Visited here a few years ago. I still find it awe inspiring to stand an look at Michelangelo's masterpiece. It is worth the entrance fee on its own. Apparently there is other stuff there too..!!

The Academy is an indispensable visit in Florence because everyone wants to see Michelangelo's David and yes, there it is, great, imposing, just perfect. But let's not forget that in La Academia there are more works, unfinished by Michelangelo and other authors... you can see...More

While everybody comes here to look at David, the gallery has lot more treasures to offer. Buying tickets ahead of time is a must. The place is not very big. So even with a tight itinerary one should squeeze in Academia

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

I did not use a tour service. I got a Firenze Card. Not knowing any better, and having been told I should do so, I also reserved a spot/time online. This was a waste of money. When I showed up for my time at the ticket... More

You can buy tickets the day before, you don't need to book very far in advance. I think there's probably a queue no matter when you come.
