We went here to tour, it was cool to see this palace. It's full of art and statues, but I wanted to also see the gardens behind it. It was a extra charge which we didn't pay. It should not be extra if you pay for a ticket to the palace. It is neat to see, but bring your wallet.

There are 2 tickets. The one that allows you to visit the castle and the museums is enough! You can have a walk in the garden afterword, after visiting the place that takes at least 2 hours. Better to go at lunch time to avoid the rush.

Spent the better part of the day wandering through the Pitti Palace, the home of the Medicis. While the art work was impressive what we will remember the most is the sheer scale of the building and the amount of effort and wealth that went into its creation. Majestic ceilings are not only painted with master pieces that appear 3D... More

We stopped at Pitti Palace to end our day, so our feet were already tired by the time we got here--this was a mistake. There are so many rooms with so many wonderful artifacts to see it was a little overwhelming. It was too much for us to do at once and really appreciate. I recommend either trying to split... More

I don't knwomhow I missed this last trip. You hear about the uffizzi and galleria etc.....the PITTI is the museum to not miss. It is absolutely gorgeous and has so many different museums within one that you need to search to find. Pay for all museums at the entrance. Allow yourself half to full day. We spent only 2.5 hrs...

We visited the boboli gardens first and ended at the pitti palace and this seemed the best way to do it. The boboli gardens seemed to be all about the walk up a steep hill and the flowers were non existent. However it was still a nice place to visit, we ended at the palace for a drink and despite...

You can see artwork, a treasury of precious metals and jewelry, fancy clothing, even a porcelain museum in the Boboli Gardens, don't miss the gardens for a fantastic view across the river to the old city. Pitti Palace is massive, too much to see if you want to dedicate a lot of time to reading. But for a quick walk... 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.
