Icom card and student discount were not accepted. 8€ for basically only looking at the statue of David was not worth it.
Michelangelo's David ist truly beautiful and impressive. The rest of the exhibition is not that exciting.
Art is in the eye of the beholder. I love to travel to see how society brings together life, art, love, music (church bells) etc. If you can travel. Go! Life is too short!
Is there really an alternative to 5 stars?
A must in Florence. You have the original David located here among many pieces of precious paintings and statues. The vibe is amazing. If you are early enough, the line might be pretty quick. If you know your trip plan way ahead, make sure to book a time slot to visit, skipping the line. Spend a good amount of time looking at David! It is truly a masterpiece.
