Over the years the accumulated treasures set within gilded rooms with frescoed ceilings must truly be one of the finest collections in the world that is open to the public. Statuary, inlaid chests and tables, oil paintings fill every room. As you walk through the apartments it just gets better and better. The costume exhibit was going on when we... More

We paid money to go into this garden, I wouldn't go again if it were free. We have parks in our city that are prettier than this place. You enter and there is a very large hill with clipped hedges along the way. In the hot afternoon sun you hike to the first level. You are rewarded with a defunct... More

Palazzo Pitti ia a nice palace where de Medici family and other lived, it has a great history and is full of art pieces. The downside of it is that the palace was divided in 2 attractions requiring 2 different tickets, one for the main palace, the modern art museum and the palatine gallery, and other for the gardens and...

the palace and grounds are amazing. No crowds. Tourists stay on other side of ponte vecchio. Many exhibits to view along with opulent rooms.

Pitti Palace is remarkable--it houses exceptionally important art collections--the Palatine Gallery displays works of Rueben, Titian, Raphael, Lippi, and Caravaggio to name a few; the Apartments record the history of the palace over three historical periods, displaying rooms of each; the Gallery of Modern art is like taking a Cliff Notes art history course, starting with Neoclassicism, going to World...

The palace is so full of treasures , history and beautiful interiors that it is mind-boggling! Whilst the stairs could be a challenge for some, if you can manage them, then this should definitely be on your To-do list

We really enjoyed our visit here and thought the gardens were beautiful. The frescos were breathtaking and there is so many things to see in the glass cases. There was a nice cafe there too facing on to the court yard.

We visited the Pitti Place in the evening for a concert under the stars. IT was magnificent. It all seemed like a dream, beautiful music, warm summer night, millions of stars in the dark blue sky. A treasured memory.

As palaces go, there are many better. The decorations were lacking and the artwork does not stand up to Uffuzi and other galleries.

The gardens are beautiful and I a nice break from the city. The museums inside the palace are educational and the architecture is amazing. Loved the 3D painted rooms! Those were our kids favorites!
