You cannot visit Florence and not see the David. Honestly, perfect in my opinion, Michelangelo's careful precision and attention to detail is clear on this piece of work. To see how someone could have sculpted such perfection into a big hunk of marble is astounding! Other great things here at the Academia is a small but interesting collection of Stradivarius String Instruments, a great find for myself being that I am violinist myself. Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 8:15am to 4:50pm. Closed Monday, New Year’s Day, May 1st, and Christmas Day. Full price: €6,50.
