The Pitti Palace has a rich history from the Renaissance to the Risorgimento and as a royal palace. The artifacts are impressive as are the works of art. There is a bit of whimsy too when viewing Napoleon's bathroom. Some of the royal rooms are overpowering for their colors and themes. The grounds out back are wonderful.

Gardens is a lot of uphill-so be prepared.

This landmark is beautiful and full of history... We just sat down in front of it like hundreds of other tourists and gazed and the fine piece of art in front of us... A very neat Palace in Firenze!

We were really looking forward to seeing the gardens inside the palace. Such a disappointment. No flowers to be seen and gardens badly needed some TLC. Also the fact that the fountains had no water gave the impression that maybe there were some economical problems...... very sad as the whole area is very impressive. These attractions are not cheap to... More

If it were possible to give it NO blobs, I would. We walked from the Centro Storico across the Ponte Veccio (Expensive shops) and up the road to this Pitti Palace to see the silver exhibition, art gallery and historic rooms. We were not interested in the costume museum or Buboli Gardens (Well not on a wet late November!) On... More

This is a beautiful museum in a city that has an overrun dance of great museums. I don't think this was built originally as a museum but it is wonderful

If you are not art-ed out already, or an alternative to the Uffizi, the Pitti Palace and the galleries have to be seen! Well worth the money, but even better if you can plan a visit on the free Sunday entry - first Sunday of the month! The Palatine Galleries are opulent staterooms filled with some of the best art...

Apart from other museums displaying Renaissance works in Florence, Pitti Palace's Galeria Paladina is the only place where you get to witness the currated collection, as it was thought when buying art for decorating its walls. It is breathtaking.

Very impressive building and artworks - and a fascinating collection of early 20th century haute couture. Avoid the courtyard restaurant - tables have pigeons hopping on them and it's very overpriced.

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!
