Academia- David

Academia- David

We had booked 9:15 am slot for Academia Gallery in Florence. The Academia is not mapped on some of the tourist maps. The Landmark for Academia is St Marks Square or Academia itself. It should take you about 1 hour to visit Academia. Yes, this can increase to couple of hours more if you haven’t booked the Academia tickets in advance. (Note: Please refer the advance booking section. ) There are two lines at the entrance- one for reservations and the other is normal line. The Academia has housed the original of original David by Michelangelo since 1873. If you plan to visit Uffizi then the 1 hr visit to academia is worth admiring the only David and the four unfinished prisoners. The David is master piece of Renaissance sculpture. It is one of the two greatest works of sculpture done by Michelangelo. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_(Michelangelo) ) You are not allowed to take snaps of the original sculpture. However there is copy of David in the courtyard of the Uffizi. At the exit there are toilets and get ready for another day through the lanes of Florence.
