Less crowded and frantic than the larger Uffitzi, this museum offers several attractions of interest. The Damiani 90 Years collection is simply breathtaking in it's display of award winning diamond creations. At the time I was there, a beautiful costume and clothing design collection was being presented. It covered eras from the early 1900's to the present. In addition there... More

The royal apartments probably have wonderful ceilings but as all of these were being used to display an art exhibition there was no lighting and the ceilings were therefore hidden from view. The Palatine apartments were grand indeed with some wonderful artwork on display. We had thought that our ticket included the gardens...it didn't. Be careful when getting a ticket... More

Huge collection of art. Beautiful gardens. There is a lot of walking involved and a lot of stairs but its well worth the exercise. This place feels like a real palace. You get a taste of real royalty here.

Too much art crowded in. Impossible to view paintings properly. Staff rude and surly. Don't eat at the cafeteria. We ordered a focaccia ( which arrived after 3 minutes and was lukewarm), coffees and cold drinks which arrived sporadically between 5 and 10 minutes later and a bruschetta which hadn't arrived after 30 minutes despite reminding waiting staff three times....

Not as well known and less frequented by visitors (in comparison to Uffizi and Galleria) although still has lots of visitors. Huge collection of really fantastic art. The palace itself is worth the visit too. All the Italian masters are here plus more. If you look carefully, there are spots where there are free guided tours to parts of the... More

We’ve been to Florence 6 times in the last 15 years and had never gone to the Pitti Palace, the former the home of the Medicis, until this year. How did we miss this jewel? We’ve been to all of the major Florentine museums several times and to most of the minor Florentine museums at least once. But this was... More

This is a bit of a walk to get to, but the Pitti Palace is worth going to. Lots of stairs so be ready, I think there were 3 or 4 double sets to go up (and down) to get to the apartments. The paintings are amazing (be sure to look up at the ceilings, gorgeous) and there are many... More

I would call it Florence's version of Versailles in Paris. Lovely collection of artwork if you are interested in baroque mid 15th century artists. Rooms are beautifully preserved too. Gardens absolutely gloria
