The Uffizi is always great, but right now its even better, as there is also an amazing temporary exhibit on DaVinci, you should check to see if that is there when you get there. The Academia is worth it just to see the David. I also liked the Museum of the History of Science, around the corner from the Uffizi, it was a nice change of pace from the Renaissance art that is incredibly showcased everywhere else in town. It has recreations of really interesting devices thorugh the ages which docents will demonstrate. It also has a pretty gruesome collection of wax models of medical problems associated with pregnancy.
The sign for the Museum of the His…

Thanks for the feedback. I'll be in Florence the first week of January, which is the last week of the DaVinci exhibit. I already knew about it, but hadn't heard what anyone thought about it yet, so glad to hear that it's worth it, that really helps!!!

It depends on what your interest is. If your are interested in history, Palazzo Vecchio is perfect match. It gathers history of Florentine government and once the palace of Medici, the great family that once had political influence on Florence, but they faced family tragedy.

If your are looking at art, Palazzo Degli Uffizi is fit since it collects Italian & Florentine arts. You should reserve the ticket 1 day prior the visit; otherwise, will have toqueue up formore than 2 hrs. Galleria Dell Accademia is where you can get to meet "David", and see how he was well crafted.

BTW, even though the cost is pretty high, but they are worthpaying.

FYI: most of the museums in Florence are closed on Mondays so just plan your trip accordingly. Unfortunately I didn't know so I didn't get to go to any of them. Just a heads up.
