  • This place was very difficult to get into, even though we had a pass the ques too forever, best time to go is at night time, there is one night a week they are open late (Wednesday). Of course, this is a must to see, so many beautiful statues and works of art, and the most popular pice of art here is the statue of David by Michel Angelo.👌
  • You cannot go to Florence and not go to pay your respects to Michelangelo's David! A place not to be missed by art enthusiasts
  • Such amazing, famous art. Even an old redneck like me was in awe!
  • Must see if you are at Fienze. Just do not ask any questions, go buy a ticket and see the masterpiece of Michelangelo. #letsguide
