There's no doubt the Pitti Palace's opulent interior is a sight to behold...with yet more priceless works of art on show. Having already visited the Uffizi, we were definitely suffering art-exhaustion by the end of this visit but that's not to detract from the quality of this attraction. Restaurant very pricey though.

Ha! The Palazzo Pitti is no small palace - Pitti is a huge place that is chock-a-block full of fabulous artworks - sculpture, paintings, ceiling and floor decoration, wall decoration - it can be very overwhelming. I would suggest a few things to prepare: first, become a member of the Uffizi before you go so that entrance to the state... More

In a town full of tourists, there's room to move and breathe while admiring fantastic frescoes, spending a little time outside, and getting to enjoy period rooms and furniture. The gardens are a little shabby in places, and the staff is largely busy texting and talking to each other, but there is so much to see and the chance to... More

Found it confusing to work out what the different tickets gave entrance to. It turned out ours did not include gardens. Inside was vast, but well labelled. On the whole didn't warm to the place. Too vast and impersonal.

The was definitely my favorite whilst in Florence. Everything is so beautiful in here and very impressive. Every room fills you with wow!! This palace is not as busy as other attractions but I cannot believe why, it is the absolute best to visit. Walking round with others that appreciate art and just viewing, in silence, was a joy. Instead... More

The beautiful is beautiful; the paintings collections are impressive; the ceilings, furnitures and carpets and beautiful; the gardens also deserve a visit. The only problem is the organization; it is difficult to find ones way and not forget some of the rooms. However, this palace is one of the priorities for a visit of Florence.

Decided only the night before that we would visit the palace. What a great decision! Got there shorty after opening. There was no line. The Palace has many different museums within it, plus gardens. There are two different types of tickets that get you into the different areas. What we wanted to see was included in different tickets, so we... More

I found the Pitti Palace by accident, walking over the Ponte Vecchio one afternoon. I bought ticket 2 which got me into several of the museums there plus the Boboli gardens which was not available on ticket 1. The only problem was that my visit started late in the afternoon and the Silver museum is more than just silver, so... More

Very nice place, even if you don't enter it. You can just relax in front of it. Surprisingly - it's not so crowded as you can expect and only a little walk from Ponte Vecchio.

A collection of several museums - The "Modern" museum is not about Modern Arts, but 19th century (I guess this is lot more recent than renaissance) - excellent collection of Empire furniture (Napoleon's influence) - explanations are somewhat lacking - particular impressive furniture in the various apartments would have been worth detailing.
