  • AMAZING, sums up our visit to see David. Bococeli painting take your breath. This gallery is a snap shot of art from the 12th century to 16th. Spectacular! Top tip start with the musical...

  • Very nice exhibits that only requires an hour or two. We found the music exhibit interesting. It would be worth it if all you saw was David.

  • 👩‍🎨🎭🖌️Cool exhibition, not big, with interesting sculpture from Italian Renaissance. The star is the David of Michelangelo (which is impressive). On the first floor there is also an interesting exhibition of painting of 1300. Plan between one and two hours to visit completely. Two options for the ticket: book it in advance or try your luck checking the queue at the entrance. Queue can be very long, but it's also quite fast. 👍🏻
  • Beautiful museum with of course the centerpiece: the David of Michelangelo. While this was clearly the main focus, the other sculptures and artworks were astonishing as well. What did stand out however is that they got less attention, regarding presentation, because they weren't as clearly structured and presented at times. Nevertheless had a great time and would recommend anyone visiting Firenze to stop by. It is advised to book a time slot beforehand though, as this will save you 1-2 hours of waiting line.
