David, the statue was magnificent. Well worth it. Our tour guide was very into art history, so sometimes it was hrs to follow his analogies. Tour was great and we saw a lot. Wish we had more time to see the paintings in the Accademia

I left knowing more than I thought possible about Florence, Influence, and history. Our guide Alesia was knowledgeable, friendly, interesting, and attentive. Skip the line means exactly that. Spend the money. Take the tour.
