We came to Pitti Palace on our last day thinking we could do it all in 3-4 hours - boy we were wrong. Signing up for the two tickets get's you into several exhibits ranging from classic art (think Michelangelo & Botticelli's) to modern art, sculptures, royal apartments, fashion gallery, the extensive gardens and so much more. We sadly had... More

I bought the ticket to go to all parts of the palace, including the gardens. I was more tan two hours, because there are many exhibitions and rooms. It was a great experience, but an audiobook is totally necessary to understand.

This place is a gem. I had a day by myself and the owner of the hostel I was staying at recommended that I visit the gardens attached to Pitti Palace. I expected to spend an hour or two walking around them. I ended up spending three and a half hours... With good reason. The gardens were so expansive that... More

I was surprised how uncrowded this palace was. We walked right in with the Firenze Pass. The outside is a little austere, but once you are inside - wow! Interesting to see how the Medicis lived (quite well!) And the gardens are beautiful!

Plan to go early if you only have one day to see the Pitti Palace and gardens. It's a huge complex with many different museums inside the palace. It's worth getting the Friends of the Uffizi card if you plan on visiting more than once, and you'll be able to go to other museums and churches in and around Florence... More

Please take a 5-minute walk past the bridge and visit the Pitti Palace and Gardens. While the gardens are more green space and fountains than flowers and nicely trimmed hedges the climb up the hill is worth the price of admission for the views it provides. The piazza in front of the palace is a fun place to sit in... More

Beautiful collection of paintings. But it is all too much. Three rows of side-to-side paintings on a wall is not doing them honour. Apart from that the building is hideous

We weren't sure what we were getting into by buying tickets to the Palatine Gallery and Royal Apartments, but it was too hot to visit the gardens, so we opted for the inside tickets. We were so glad we did! The Palatine Gallery has an amazing collection of paintings--Raphael, Rubens, Titian, etc--and it was not crowded at all. The Royal... More

This palace is the epitome of the term "living large". Home to the Medicis, the huge palace and its sumptuous furnishings give an incredible picture of the wealth and power of the Medici family that ruled Florence during the Renaissance. The art they assembled is an amazing collection that, by itself, would qualify as among the world's best. Add to... More
