A glimpse at Michelangelo's David is a stunning (and colossal) high point of a visit to the Galleria dell'Accedemia.

I HAD to see David when we were in Florence, and when I realized we were actually quite far from Florence, we decided to book through the Cruise to get a tour of Florence including a visit to the academy to see The David. The tour was really awesome, it was geared specifically around Michelangelo and his life and influence in Florence, but we also got to see the burial place of Galileo, and the epitaph of Dante (he was never allowed back in to be buried until it was too late), while also getting time to eat and explore on our own. It ended up being our favorite port and excursion, just perfection! Read Less

If you go and watch the Rick Steve's Europe episode of Florence - this was almost exactily what we did on our EXC tour "Florence: Statue of David and the Uffizi Museum" This tour hit all of the highlights of Florence and included lunch as a local restaurant with wine. The wine was chianti - which I'm not a fan of, but the food was good. It was a very busy day and a very unforgettable day. We saw it all! Read Less

Long bus ride to Florence (over an hour) but guide gives a nonstop history of the area.

Long bus ride to Florence (over an hour) but guide gives a nonstop history of the area. Florence was extremely crowded. The visit to the museum to see the statue of David was a bucket list item. Then we had free time to shop and eat.

Paola picked us up at the cruise port. She had a speaker system in her van so we could all hear on the drive. She was a plethora of knowledge. However, she seemed put off when the teens in our group would fade off and kept insisting on their attention like a school teacher. Also, we told her we were not shoppers and she insisted on taking us to a perfume shop and leather shop which I felt was a waste of valuable time. My guess is she has a relationship with them since she is a local. She did take us for a lovely lunch though. The statute of David should not be missed. Read Less

Loved this city and tour. We visited Piazzle del Michelangelo for the spectacular view of Florence. Then made our way to the Accademia Museum to see the Statue of David at a surprisingly not so busy time. We then walked passed the Duomo and the baptistery, and made our way to Piazza Della Signoria. After that we walked passed the Uffizi Gallery and to Ponte Vecchio, and then ended up at Santa Croce where we had time to shop, eat, and visit the church where famous people such as Galileo and Michelangelo are buried. After that we headed back to the ship. Just wish we had a little time to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but we loved this excursion Read Less

My husband & I paid $458 US Dollars for two people for LI1105A Florence, Statue of David, & Uffizi Museum Princess shore excursion. After paying $4.60 USD for one bottle of water, we spent 90-minutes on a standard 48-person bus with NO bathroom facilities. We waited with hordes of other tour groups & the general public to be be herded into the Galleria to use the bathroom “facilities” & see the David. Crowds, constant static, & competing audio from several other tour groups made it difficult to hear our tour guide. Read Less
