No need to purchase tickets in advance. The Pitti Palace was not on our original itinerary. But we’re glad we made the stop. There are too many paintings to count inside the Pitti palace. Beautiful building (used to be the home of the Medici family) that is extremely ornate on the inside. The gardens are a must for relaxing and... More

We initially wanted to walk through the Boboli Garden but found out we had to buy a ticket that included the garden and several of the museums in the palace for 10 euro. Very much worth it. Try to do it on a day when the weather is nice. The silver museum is interesting. The silver is on the second... More

Two of us went on a weekday. We bought tickets to the museum and Bobili Gardens. It was a very hot 85 degrees but the air conditioning was excellent. There were many rooms of art. the art was unbelievable and then we found the ceramic display in a room near the top of the building. Please do not miss this... More

We went here to tour, it was cool to see this palace. It's full of art and statues, but I wanted to also see the gardens behind it. It was a extra charge which we didn't pay. It should not be extra if you pay for a ticket to the palace. It is neat to see, but bring your wallet.

There are 2 tickets. The one that allows you to visit the castle and the museums is enough! You can have a walk in the garden afterword, after visiting the place that takes at least 2 hours. Better to go at lunch time to avoid the rush.

Spent the better part of the day wandering through the Pitti Palace, the home of the Medicis. While the art work was impressive what we will remember the most is the sheer scale of the building and the amount of effort and wealth that went into its creation. Majestic ceilings are not only painted with master pieces that appear 3D... More

We stopped at Pitti Palace to end our day, so our feet were already tired by the time we got here--this was a mistake. There are so many rooms with so many wonderful artifacts to see it was a little overwhelming. It was too much for us to do at once and really appreciate. I recommend either trying to split... More

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
