2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2015

Very short tour. We did see the original David which is what we were looking for.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2015

It was ok. nothing fancy. We did this in the evening with aperitivo. The museum is small and the tour guide was very informative but not necessary. There was a line outside but not a long one so not worth the skip the line entrance fee. After the tour the guide just sent us outside with a voucher for the apervito and pointed in the direction of the restaurant. I took us a while to find it and the apervito was nothing special. It was ok but I wouldn't pay the extra money. Just go on your own and wait in the line.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2015

I took this tour three years ago and had a great experience. This time I was with my teenage children and wanted to share the rich art and sculptures with them. It is an impressive gallery however, our guide spoke in a low voice and had limited intonation and she was not engaging. So we could not hear her and she was boring. It would have been better if we had earbuds used in all other tours.
