View the artwork--including Michelangelo's famous David--inside Accademia di Belle Arti, an art academy founded in 1563. Marvel at the impressive size and detail of the David. Photos of the statue are not allowed, but outside the museum stands a replica that can be photographed. Apart from the David, the museum houses other, mostly religious, works of art.

  • Museum of fine arts is located about 600 m north of the Cathedral is provided by the Florence fine arts school. Is the star attraction here is Michelangelo's statue of David. That originally stood in the Piazza della Signoria, stands in the square of the current replica. I'd thought big in the square, at the hotel and 4 m34cm statue is indeed large. Unfinished, such as suing the slaves of Michelangelo are four lined walkway leading to the Hall, and as you want dig out from a stone statue is there power.

  • Worth seeing and doing a private tour to avoid the crazy lines to get in. Lots to see inside and the Statue of David is truly amazing to see up close. 
  • Accademia Gallery you cannot miss it After the Uffizi is the second you have to see in Florence if you haven't booked go a little early or else there's tail species Saturday and Sunday here Michelangelo's David is admired by thousands of people every year Rightly because as Vasari there is in the world and there will be a sculpture of equal beauty Where Michelangelo has depicted the human expression and gaze deep within it. Then I gathered the unfinished works by Michelangelo and paintings of some famous painters Attached also Museum of musical instruments and a gallery with many plaster casts The Council absolutely

  • The academy of fine arts could also be called the Michael Angelo museum because most of the art in there he made . We purchased the tickets from home and good thing we did ,the line to get in was around the block . When we arrived at the gate to validate our tickets there was a lot of commotion and some yelling and screaming . The people in front of us purchased tickets but didn't have proper identification to be accepted entrance . It appeared they purchased tickets for youth and their identification didn't support that. When we made it to ticket counter she asked the ages of our kids and I provided her with school id and passports . We were granted immediate access and it was well worth it ! The statue of David was remarkable as was the museum . If u make it to Florence u have to make it to this museum . It was worth it.
  • Everything about this place is breathtaking the history, the artist, the statues, the art, the architecture, but the statue of David takes the cake. Words cannot describe the amount of detail that he has. They were shooting a video if it when we were there so no one was supposed to take pictures. I was able to get a couple of decent ones from my jacket.
  • I've been twice, and feel very fortunate to have done so as Michelangelo's David is every bit as impressive as anyone has ever describe it. I did not expect this. I was simply awestruck upon seeing it. I was almost equally surprised at the rest of the museum. Is unfinished works where very interesting to look at and try to figure out his methods.
  • Seeing the statue in a photo no matter how wonderful is simply not sufficient to appreciate the majesty of Michelangelo's masterpiece...which was carved from a used piece of marble. The intensity of his gaze as he contemplates sending the stone on its journey to fell Goliath is really amazing and though the statue is 13 feel tall and completely marble you can practically see him breathing! If you want to avoid the long queue - please book your tickets online
  • I wasn't overly impressed, but I'm also not huge art person.
