This place is huge and I was amazed at the many splendid must see works of art within this place. I chose not to visit the gardens and concentrated within the palace museum itself, which was absolutely decadent. Definitely worth a visit!

Borderline heresy, but we preferred the Pitti Palace to the Uffizi. (Note we did not see the gardens in the Uffizi.) First, it is far more manageable in size and less overwhelming. Second, it is far less crowded. Going to the Uffizi to take pictures of people taking pictures of Michelangelo's David is surrealistic, at best. And while you don't... More

The Pitti Palace contains a number of museums with a great variety of exhibits. After we finished seeing the museums (it took a couple of hours just to glance through quickly) we went to the Boboli gardens. We went to the top of the garden and the view was breathtaking. Make sure you spare at least half a day there.... More

The "new" palace of the Medicci family has a wonderful suite of royal residence rooms with the original furnishings and many ,, many rooms of wonderful art. Even without the gardens, you should schedule at least 3 hours for this tour.

The Pitti Palace is the seat of the Italian royal family and that of Napoleon for a short while. With all there is to see in Florence I would say this would be a good attraction to add if you have the extra time but not at the expense of the Uffizi Gallery. The public rooms are grand but it's...

We went to the Pitti Palace and chose to visit the Silver Museum; our guide book enthused about the beautiful tiaras and stunning jewellery. It seemed just the thing after days of Renaissance art. However, what our guide book didn't tell us is that this is largely a collection of saints' bones displayed in ornate and in my opinion tasteless... More

Across the Ponte Vecchio, it is a it of a walk but worth the effort. The art, furnishings, frescoes and history are worth the time. Be sure to get the audio guide. You may want to visit the gardens on another day or give the Pitti Palace & Boboli Gardens a full day. The entry fee is separate for both.... More

It is definitely recommended to check the inside of this palazzo. (I have not visited or seen the gardens to which a lot of these comments relate) The palazzo is located at the other side of the river, a bit away from the crowds. Magnificent rooms and ceilings are an attraction (and must-see in my opinion, but see the below... More

Conveniently located in Florence (just keep going across the Ponte Vecchio across the Arno from Florence proper to the Oltrarno). The palace, and associated Boboli Gardens, are well worth the trip. Keep in mind, the price to visit the gardens is separate from the palace itself, but I feel both are worth the effort and expense. This is the terminus... More
