  • We visited this galleria and the minute you walk in there is "The David" is truly a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture and a must see.  more »
  • Go here, if for no other reason, to see The David! It’s amazing to think of the skill required to sculpt such a large figure out of marble in such fine detail. Plus, there is a lot of interesting art.  more »

  • Icom card and student discount were not accepted. 8€ for basically only looking at the statue of David was not worth it.
  • Michelangelo's David ist truly beautiful and impressive. The rest of the exhibition is not that exciting.
