Take a look at Michelangelo’s unfinished San Matteo, a sculpture that he was commissioned to create before he left Florence for Rome. His Prigioni is located nearby, so wander over and gaze at the four unfinished sculptures of prisoners or slaves that seem to be trying to escape from the blocks of marble that encase them.
Impressive as they are, the Accademia Gallery’s unfinished sculptures pale in comparison to the museum’s main crowd-drawer: Michelangelo’s statue of David. Stand and look at the 17-foot (5.17-meter) marble statue of the biblical hero, marveling at the level of detail that the young Michelangelo put into the famously nude warrior.
Adjacent to the statue are rooms containing paintings by other famous Renaissance artists like Botticelli and Filippino Lippi, as well as artists from both the Middle Ages and 17th-century. Amble through a room containing 19th-century plaster sculptures and visit the on-site Museum of Musical Instruments, where an intriguing collection of stringed instruments are exhibited.
How long you spend inside the gallery is up to you; many visitors find that two hours is sufficient.

Wow, the area outside the Accademia is bananas! The tour guide found us and got us our tickets straight away. Once you get through the scrum outside and get in, the gallery is spectacular and worth it.

Even with skip the line tickets we waited 40 minutes to get in. Regular ticket holders seemed to be in a line that stretched forever, and their line was in the hot sun which can be a factor for some as it was 97 degrees when we went last week. How can you go to Florence and not see DAVID? It would be like going to the Louvre and not seeing the Mona Lisa. Note: YOU have to search out the company guide for your skip the line passes....they won't search you out. This might be intimidating for 1st time/ older tourists but it's not that hard. For any tour you take, if you can't find your ticket/pass representative...just go up to any of the other ticket reps loitering and ask them where your company is,,,,they all know each other and all speak English and we're always polite and helpful. Enjoy your upcoming trip!
