Our first visit to Florence was a daytrip from Lido de Jesolo queued nearly 2hours in blisterning sun but I couldn't visit without seeing him and he was worth it could never understand what was so special about him until I saw him. However if you know in advance you are going to Florence prebook on the internet an d walk straigght in.

yes, the lines could be long, but while in Florence you have got to visit the David, nothing compares to see the real one, it is breathtaking.

There is just not enough here for the price, unless you must see certain things inside or they are a specialty of yours. I mean, unless you can burn money, this place does not have enough inside to make it worth the visit........

Just my opinion based on my paid entrance! I did see many people exit well satisfied so I know I may be in the minority.

Just my opinion...... if youa re on a budget, perhaps something else would be better.

The entry to this museum costs $35 Euro per person.......... That is over $40 US, and really the only thing worth seeing in there is the statue of David! Everything else, the paintings, the other sculptures, etc by their own admission and guides are second and third rate artists because all the good stuff is in other museums around town and Italy.

You enter and need to just pace around because seeing the David statue takes all of 10 minutes, maybe 15 if you want to circle it twice, and then you are really done........

Over $40 US just for that? Where does all that money go? It is just too expsnsive but then, the statue of David is magnificant so what can you do but be ripped off and have a great memory....
