Italy, Florence Guide (B): A Day in Florence: Accademia Gallery Visit + City Walk

Last week marked the beginning of the nice weather of 2017! It was sunny and warm; the tourists started to come up, which brought the dormant city back to live. Everyday I spent some time outdoor to make sure I was enjoying the most of this golden week, and one of the best time I had was a day of art & culture.

After living in Florence for almost 2 years, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t been to the Accademia to see Michelangelo’s David! This needed to be changed, and last week was the perfect time to do that!

With a reservation confirmed online, I found myself in front of the Accademia Gallery at 11o’clock waiting to get in. Thanks to the most famous marble sculpture David by Michelangelo, Accademia never needs to worry about visitors. Every year 1.500 million people come from all over the world to Accademia to see David. It is consider the most popular museum in the world, considering its size and the number of visitors. And you can easily agree to this fact by looking at the long queues outside the ticketing office, as well as the line at the gate ready to dive in. Due to this, reserving your time slot is highly preferred.
