I happened to pass this palace which was truly very huge. The architecture is similar to a lot of important attractions in Florence.

One of the stops on the hop on bus tour. Loved the surrounding natural areas of Oltrarno. Palace is huge, lots of walking within. Great works of art nicely displayed. No crowds so it was easy to enjoy the art, just so much of it. I have felt overwhelmed in Italy with so much art, it's hard to take it... More

Be prepared for a lot of walking and many, many stairs but all well worth it. You need the whole day to see everything as there are so many incredible paintings, exhibitions and rooms to view. After doing indoors the café was a welcome break offering a good variety of food and drinks, the ice cream was wonderful. Then onto... More

Outstanding place, dominant in both size and beauty. However, because of its sharp difference with the rest of Florence architectural style this is somewhat strange sight. Like it doesn't belong there. This is one of the reasons not to miss it, so you can see it for yourself.

It is one of the places I liked most in Florence, the Medici gardens are really romantic and you can have a bit or rest there. There are also very interesting exhibitions inside the palace- the fashion one was my favorite.

ben there on a sunday when all state owned museums are free to enter so it was a tossup between the Uffizi and this-seen the uffizi before so decided on this one-lots of paintings and statues,nicely decorated rooms,worth a visit,the garden was a bit disapointing not to mention the porcelain museum-very ordinary

Neighborhood Profile
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.
