It was not as busy as we expected when we found out it was free- and after the previous day in the Uffizi it was a bit of an anti climax[well to be honest what wouldn't be?] Lots of rooms ornately...

Banker Luca Pitti went bankrupt on the death of Cosimo de Medici, but it still took the Medici 91 years to purchase the property. Then by 1737 the Medici family died out. So they had owned the place for 188 years - and added a few rooms, and a garden or two in the meantime. However, King Victor Emmanuel 3rd... More

-If you are interested in art you can easily spend there 2 days watching exhibitions, paintings and sculptures. The line is not ridiculously long and price is fair & affordable - If you are interested in gardens than inside Palazzo you will find great garden with a lot of water features, sidewalks, sculptures and amazing plants -If you don't give...

Great collection. Skipped the line with a Uffizi Gallery membership pass. Want to go back in warmer weather for the gardens.

We came walking into town through the gardens where u pay 7 Euros per adult entry fee which gives u access to 2 museums here too. Plenty to see and be impressed. Bring time, especially when the weather is good.

My wife and I visited this museum while visiting Florence recently. There is a huge selection of paintings, sculpture, china, jewelry, silver, etc., in this place and you can take your time to roam from room to room and look at everything that has been meticulously maintained and preserved. (If you are in Florence for more than a day, buy... More

Personally I'm a big fan of renaissance art. There's so much to see from the Florentine masters such a Raphael. The paintings have also been well maintained, in all the colour and vibrant! There are knowledge cards in every display room, with a short writeup of each artpiece. Very enjoyable for a Renaissance art lover like me!! To get there,... More

Room after room of beautiful renaissance art, decorations and furniture in the Royal rooms. Fantastic gardens! Do not miss this if you want to see the wealth of Firenze during and after the renaissance. Didn't visit the other museums inside.

I had visited the Pitti Palace twice. Once in 2004 and again now in 2015. I don't ever remember managing to walk the whole gardens area. Inside the palace travels you historically and outside offers you a great chance to walk in nature. However the walk needs around 6 hours for walking the whole area. There is no fee if... More
