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

I went here on the free Sunday (1st Sunday of each month), around lunchtime and didn't have to queue. Rooms full of amazing art by Raffaelo, Titian, Ruebens etc. Museo delle Porcellane also a must see and Museo degli Argenti, with incredible displays of jewelery. I'd recommend doing a bit of research first as the overall plan isn't that clear... More

We were intent upon seeing the Boboli Gardens and alas, a storm had rendered them unavailable. The ticket taker was unable to answer our questions and we spent 20 minutes trying to determine what was available as there are a few options. This museum could take a day without touring gardens. We chose the Costume Gallery and several rooms downstairs.... More

This lovely palace does not disappoint. Rafael and Titian masterpieces live here, housed in the sumptuous palace rooms. A real treat and worth the visit. You can also see beautiful views of the city from certain rooms where the art and sculpture is displayed. A wonderful museum.

To have a gallery that was still set out in rooms was amazing. We even looked at Napoleon's bathroom, not just a normal gallery but a must see in Florence

We visited quite early at christmas time so pretty quiet, so nice. Wow the history here, the making of our society, so many beautiful things to see. And the gardens, just see them and appreciate what they built. Do yourself a favour and just enjoy the history, walk around slowly drink it in, if you don't get it why are... More
