Galleria Dellaccademia - Review
The Accademiais a much celebratedart institute situated in Florence, Italy. It features the works of Michelangelo Buonarroti, Francesco da Sangallo, AgnoloBronzino, Benvenuto Cellini, Giorgio Vasari, BartolomeoAmmannati, and Giambologna are the main prime members. Considering that most of the works displayed here were by male artists, Artemisia Gentileschi has distinguished herself as being the only female artists to have her works on display.The Accademia was established in 1563 by Cosimo I de' Medici under the direct impact of Giorgio Vasari. There are two sections, namely- the Company, whichwas catered to all working craftsmen, and the Academy, which wasallotted for more famous masters of Cosimo's court.

Galleria Dellaccademia, Florence Reviews
We went for one main reason: Michelangelo's Statue of David. It is different in person... As in better. I think the scale of the effort, planning, execution. The importance of perspective... These things are lost until you see it in person. Walk around the statue - all the way around. Note the sling, the tendons, the way he sculpted the biceps, the veins in the hands and neck... Other aspects were good as well, but this was my main interest and I was not disappointed.
Great place, with great art, David is surreal in person, so beautiful and detailed, not too busy or crammed inside, cool historical musical instrument bit too. Not too expensive at all. Only downside is the queue, which we were in for 2 hours, due to only allowing certain amount of people in, therefore have to wait for people to leave and there is no set amount of time for them to stay so could maybe be waiting all day. I should have booked tickets online earlier definitely, and would recommend people planning to come here do the same.
Stunning!!! Definitely get your ticket in advance. The crowds are quite large and centered around the main attraction. Take the time to look at the other rooms if there are too many people looking at The David. As for The David, it far surpassed any expectations I had. Stunning work. So glad it is being preserved for centuries to come.
Smaller place compared to other galleries in Florence. The statue of David is itself, is worthy of a visit! The size of the sculpture is overwhelmingly huge. The sculpture quality and the expression of muscles are amazingly realistic. The museum also includes displays of Renaissance paintings, more sculptures and busts, an instrument museum, and a gold leaf exhibition on the second floor (the video of how gold leaves are made and are used in making Renaissance arts is fun and educational to watch.)
We got there around 9:30 and had tickets for 10:30 entry. There was no one in the reservation line so they let us in early. We were ahead of the crowd and we're able to walk right up to Michelangelo's David which really is as good as advertised. The museum is a very manageable size. There are some unfinished Michelangelo sculptures. Work of other sculptors is in another room which included some cool videos about the casting process. There we're additional exhibits elsewhere but those were my highlights.
