Museum, galleries, history-a great place to convey all of these. One of the sites must to visit in Florence, and dont miss the gardens back palace, with the amfitheatrum and grotto.

Everyone crowds to the Ufizzi but tolks....trust me, if you are interested in gorgeous works of art, decorative arts and seeing how the Medici's lived, including their beautifully appointed apartments and Napoleon's bathroom...you must add this to your list. It's one of the best sites we have visited in Florence!

The Pitti Palace has 4 or 5 museums and the huge Boboli Gardens. We had Ufizzi membership cards so the entrance to everything was free. I could see if you had to purchase tickets it could be confusing as there are several combo tickets. The outside of the palace is actually quite ugly. We spent all morning here and didn't... More

We went here without a plan and actually really enjoyed it. Make sure that you check opening times as it is closed in the week. Get there early as grounds are obviously outside and it can get hot!

Had it not been for a friend's recommendation I'd probably wouldn't have visited the Pitti Palace. I bought the two tickets (one for the gardens and an exposition, the other for the two main galleries of the palace) and it was definitely worth it. The gardens are very beautiful, I thoroughly recommend to walk a little bit more and go... More

The Pitti Palace is a huge edifice comprising of over 5 museums and gardens - all of which are worth seeing. As we had Amici delgia Uffizi cards, we visited the Palace three times during our two week visit to Florence. We only just scratched the surface. In my view you would need at least a full day just to... More

I toured the royal apartments of the Palace. The cost was on the high side, especially since admission to the Boboli Gardens of the Palace was not included. Nevertheless I was quite impressed with the grandeur of the De Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany and their successors as reflected in this grand residence.

This was our family's top trip when we were in Florence earlier this month.We went as a bit of a last minute thought having done all the other touristy things. It turned out to be the most spectacular visit in so many ways - most already highlighted in other reviews. There is something for everyone from paintings to gardens. Definitely... More

Once you get your tickets at the ticket office, you go inside and what is waiting for you is the most amazing collection of art and history I have come across. What is even more so, and probably quite important, is that this museum has airconditioning inside. So I recommend this attraction especially on a hot summer day. This place... More

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
