we had standard double rooms which were very clean. the hotel was located in the perfect location. right down the street from the ponte vecchio, and easy walking distance to the leather market, and all the museums. the breakfast/bar/dinner on the roof top was simply breathtaking! you can see EVERYTHING. starting your day up there with a cappuchino and ending...

Our visit here was just okay. The gardens were our favorite but there is very little signs and the maps are poor so we missed the Boboli Gardens which are connected here but only found out later where they connected. It's also so large it was hard to see it all. Inside Pitti was just okay. We had a stroller... More

I actually came here hoping to see some modern art in their contemporary art gallery.. That was a bit of a joke since most of that art is from the 1700-1800s. It's "modern" in that it's from after the Renaissance. However the ticket to the art gallery also got us into the royal apartments, and that made the visit so... More

this was a wonderful way to spend a half day, we walked the endless interior of gilded bedrooms, noting there was only one bath for a multiple of bedrooms. the exterior gardens were expansive and round each corner was another pleasant place to enjoy.

Definitely take both types of tickets and go to every exposition. Note: the same ticket is shown multiple times - do not throw it away! The garden is enormously large with miles of different paths and hidden spots with sculptures, fontains, etc.

If you are in Florence for a few days, take some time to go see this site. If the Pitti Palace was just the Pitti Palace and nothing else it would be beautiful. however, behind the Pitti is the Boboli Garden. Florences' own Versailles but done in the Italian way; its a breathtaking scene of flowers, hedges, trees, paths, fountains,... More

Our hotel La Scaletta was located in Via de Guicciardini and each morning we had breakfast on a terrace with a beautiful view on the Boboli Garden and the impressive Pitti Palace. One morning we decided to visit the Palace. The entrance was a five minute walk and the line for the ticket office was short. Once inside we were... More

So much to see and do! We bought the no.2 ticket for access to the costume gallery, jewellery and porcelain museums, and the gardens. That was more than enough but for an extra €3 you can see the lot. An easy way to spend an entire day.

In very hot weather, we'd decided to visit the gardens in the morning and the Palace in the afternoon, and take our time. But you do need time here. An hour or two wouldn't be nearly enough. In the Palace the first thing we saw was an exhibition of religious paintings on huge display boards in some absolutely fabulous rooms.... More

To avoid the crowds (which is a blessing in busy Florence) and also to get an audio guide. We went in the afternoon. There was no queue to get in but no audio guides available. My 16year old got in for free (take ID for proof of age) Lots to see but without the guides we were a little lost... More

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
