Michelangelo's David is one of those must see things while visiting the lovely city of Florence. This having been our first time in the galleria dell'accademia we were shocked to see how large the david statue actually is! the detail on this 17 foot tall statue is incredible and truely makes you appreciate the time and effort put into crafting it. Here's a tip for you, MAKE SURE YOU RESERVE TICKETS TO THE GALLERY IN ADVANCE ONLINE!!! There are 2 entrances, 1 for "reserved" ticket holders (you), and one for "non reserved" ticket holders (every other scmuck). As you can imagine, the non reserved line stretches around the block. Do yourself a favor and reserve DIRECTLY THROUGH THE GALLERY, there is not need to pay a tour company an extra 20 Euro for something that requires little to no effort on your part. Enjoy!
