I visited the Costume Gallery with my daughter who is a design student studying in Florence. Overall, the costume gallery is presented beautifully with each area nicely merchandised, but there are some oddities to the collection. Starting with the positive, visually the groupings were a lovely mix, presented with great attention to color balance, shape and platform highs and lows.... More

This palazzo was built by Luca Pitti, a Florentine banker, in 1457. The Medici took it over 100 years later and shaped it into what can be seen today. The palace is massive and worth seeing just for its architecture. Entrance is available by way of two tickets - one gets you in the Palatine and Modern Galleries and the... More

Although beautiful and incredibly palastial it was not worth the ?10 spent to get in -- didnt even get the see everything at that price. I gave it 3 stars because the gardens were lovely, but was still expecting to see so much more!

As this was my second time in Florence we were looking for things we had done the first time, ie the Uffizi, Duomo, David Statue, etc. the Palace is impressive, built for one of the original founding families of Florence. The museum collections inside were interesting , particularly the Costume Museum. The highlight was the outdoor Bobolink Gardens. This is... More

This is a huge Palace Complex converted into a Museum. This houses several specialised sections and the visitor may choose according to their interest. There is a secret passage from this palace to Palazzo Vecchio known as Vasari Corridor. It has to be booked in advance as only a limited numbers are allowed. I strongly recommend this guided tour.

The Uffizi is more frequently visited,but i prefer the Pitti Palace,despite its lesser collection and its too imposing aspect. In Florence,sadly, the visitor must hatch strategies to establish some distance between himself and the ever-present crowds, and going to the other side of the Arno,where the Pitti is located,sometimes does the trick. Originally commissioned by a banker who wanted a... More

This place is huge and home to more than one museum. The rooms which are to the left of the big square have the most wonderful frescoes. There are floors and floors of art works, sculpture and jewellery and a museum of costume - mainly 20th century - beautifully displayed. There was not very much explanation and I didn't see... More

A hughe palace and a must see. Great collection of paintings in furnished rooms. Gives a good impression and a better feeling of the golden ages of Florence. Actually better than the Uffizi palace.

The façade of the Palazzo is stunning by itself. Curving slightly sit majestically in the square for everyone to enjoy. Inside the Palazzo is a triumph of Florentine history with different museums, but every one tells the story of the Medici collections and is a testament of the power and "taste" of this great family. Just a small anecdote: the... More
