The main focus of the Accademia is the David. Be sure to look up the gallery online before you go as there are no maps (you can purchase a book in the Bookstore or an auditor, but there are no free guides/maps.

We lined up for 3 hours to get in but it was well worth it - the Statue of David just shines. Its a small gallery with David as the star attraction. Other exhibits were average - Uffizi is much better for paintings, sculptures and...More

If that is the only thing to see, this is very well worth seeing the original Michelangelo David! Incredible to see in person! We went with a semi-private group when we did a day trip up from Roma to Firenze. While we did not get...More

The academi takes about 30 mins to get into and about the same time to get through it all. Unless you're really into musical instruments or icons. But the icons in the uffizi are better. David is awesome though

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

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.
