You can not leave Florence without seeing David! It's impressive The rest of the paintings and objects are too, but the statue is definitely the main attraction. Buy your tickets far before you go, because it's not worth to stand in line for hours. You can also achieve your tickets nearby the entrance of the Galleria. You pay 4€ more of reservation fee, but you can almost go directly in without passing by this huge line. There are tour guides who will try to sell a tour for 1 hour for at least 40€ per person, which I think is super overrated. Children under 18 go for free. And under 25 they have a reduction! Do take your ID.
This is hard to rate because most of the gallery is 3 star. There are only a few particularly interesting artworks. Then you have David, which is one of the greatest artistic masterpieces ever in any form. It's an absolute must see for David but if you got rid of the rest of the gallery you wouldn't be missing much. There is so much art elsewhere in Florence that's better. Spend most of your time elsewhere.
I have always underestimated how fascinating one is when viewing David. That is until I saw him in person. The level of detail is mind blowing. There are also many other statues and paintings to enjoy here. This is definitely something that should be seen at least once. Regardless of artistic interest.
This is a beautiful museum filled with paintings and sculptures. The sculpture "David" by Michelangelo is on display here. The entrance fee is €8 for the normal queue. However, people start queuing from 08h00. There's also a musical instruments museum within the exhibit.
Great gallery. Must see David. It takes your breath away. Just plan ahead. Line was very long. We asked our hotel and they were able to get us tickets to the front and we didn't have to wait all day.
