The Pitti Palace became the home of one branch of the Medici family and contains their magnificent apartments in addition to one of the worlds great art collections. Here you can see the famous "Spring" of Botticelli, his "Birth of Venus", and more Titians, Raphael's, and other treasures than can be mentioned here. It is very wise to make an... More

It appears to be free entry on the first Sunday of the month. I don't think this is well publicised because I wasn't the only one putting my credit card back in my pocket. About 20 euros normally, which is a bit steep.

The ceiling frescos are amazing. Went to look at the rooms of the Medici. Most rooms are decorated after this time. The paintings on the walls are so beautiful. So many old masters. Titan's, Botticelli, everywhere. Well worth a look.

We spent several hours here - and didn't get to go through the main apartments (because they are closed on Mondays). Boboli Gardens are wonderful to wander through. The porcelain and treasury were great. The Costume Gallery was a bit different than I expected. I expected it to include clothes from the families that originally lived in the Palace. It... More

The Palazzo Pitti is a gorgeous building, walking distance from the Ponte Vecchio. Access is included with the FirenzeCard. There are a number of different galleries - my favourite was the costume galleries, featuring everything from wedding dresses to modern Italian designers. A must-see if you're obsessed with Italian fashion like me!

So beautiful and opulent, looks nothing from the exterior. Watch out for the 'free' tour of the private areas of the royal apartments, including the bedrooms and bathrooms. This tour takes about 30 mins and as you enter the apartments the lady is sitting at a small desk on the left. You have to put your names on the list... More

Less crowded and frantic than the larger Uffitzi, this museum offers several attractions of interest. The Damiani 90 Years collection is simply breathtaking in it's display of award winning diamond creations. At the time I was there, a beautiful costume and clothing design collection was being presented. It covered eras from the early 1900's to the present. In addition there... More

The royal apartments probably have wonderful ceilings but as all of these were being used to display an art exhibition there was no lighting and the ceilings were therefore hidden from view. The Palatine apartments were grand indeed with some wonderful artwork on display. We had thought that our ticket included the gardens...it didn't. Be careful when getting a ticket... More

Huge collection of art. Beautiful gardens. There is a lot of walking involved and a lot of stairs but its well worth the exercise. This place feels like a real palace. You get a taste of real royalty here.
