Not a good experience for the price. 1). Bell boy didn't help us with our bags. 2). Concierge didn't print the traib scehdule for us when we asked to have it printed after dinner 3). When we checked into the room there was a mop and the maid stuff right next to it - disgusting 4). No tissues...had to ask... More

I found the Pitti Palace by accident, walking over the Ponte Vecchio one afternoon. I bought ticket 2 which got me into several of the museums there plus the Boboli gardens which was not available on ticket 1. The only problem was that my visit started late in the afternoon and the Silver museum is more than just silver, so... More

Very nice place, even if you don't enter it. You can just relax in front of it. Surprisingly - it's not so crowded as you can expect and only a little walk from Ponte Vecchio.

A collection of several museums - The "Modern" museum is not about Modern Arts, but 19th century (I guess this is lot more recent than renaissance) - excellent collection of Empire furniture (Napoleon's influence) - explanations are somewhat lacking - particular impressive furniture in the various apartments would have been worth detailing.

The Pitti Palace was the last thing my parents and I did in Florence before we left. We got there right when it opened at 8:00, and there was no line at all. The one thing I didn't like about this place was the two different tickets. Inside the palace are several different galleries and museums, but in order to... More

The Pitti Palace is a great place to visit to see art, older living apartments, and costumes. However, it is best to visit the Uffizi Gallery if you are interested in just seeing art. We visited the Pitti Palace but unfortunately could not visit the famous Boboli Gardens due to a storm a few days before. We also did not... More

On a wet, Wednesday afternoon, we decided to stop by Palazzo Pitti to get dry. We never intended on visiting here as we did not think we would have the time. We were so glad that we did. On arrival at the Modern Art exhibition set in the state rooms, we were greeted by a student named Marco, offering to... More

This place was one of my favorites, I highly recommend the gardens number one!! You can save this for the last thing on your tour (the gardesn close at 3-4 PM so get here earlier) and head out to the several museums before. You can probably spend a whole day here if you wanted. 1-2 hours at the museums and... More

We found this palace to be nice, but quite large especially the garden. Therefore, you might need 2 to 3 hours to actually see the whole thing. Some of the palace parts were below expectations.

This space and grounds are spectacular. The gardens( Boboli) are a must see- see them first on a sunny day followed by a tour of the museum which is good but not in the same class as the Uffuzi or Academia. Well worth 2-3 hours.KMeloff Toronto
