Huge palace

The architecture is amazing and the rooms are very impressive, with some beautiful artwork. Since we were in Florence the first Sunday of the month the entrance was free.

A huge palazzo in Florence, with fabulous gardens behind the forbidding stone walls. We have visied this palazzo several times but always find something new to marvel at. The ticketing office and entrance always seem to be a little chaotic but once inside all is calm. Back packs need to be left in a secure area downstairs before you are... More

This place has a lot of art. We were warned about ODing on art in Florence, and we may have done that here. One or two art museum day is probably the max for us.

So much to see, the inside has a lot of museums. My favorites were the palace massive gardens and the dresses exhibits - there is a dark room, with the original clothes! You can see how the colors faded away with time but realize how bright they were and how rich

I love the Pitti Palace for all the various hidden treasures that are behind these walls. The costume exhibits, their classic Florentine art exhibits and the Boboli Gardens (which connect to the Bardini gardens- a real walk, but a great gorgeous walk if you are up for it). the beauty it contains symbolizes the great wealth of the Florentine past...

Good to experience "the life" of the king in the city ages ago. It is a place to learn the history of the city.

Of course, I have to give Palazzo Pitti at least 4 points out of 5 because of its monumentality, its importance and its collections. But in this review, I'd like to also point out some potential problems: 1) The cash desk is located in the right wing. It's very small so I can imagine there would be some queues in... More

The palace was amazing and even the gardens that it had. Also if you are a student you get in for free which is quite good :)

Pitti Palace features treasures from all imaginable segments. However, after an hour of looking at several dresses, glasses and jewels you would like to see something different, and it's just all the same all over. But, if can appreciate architecture and art this is the place for you. Paintings in the ceilings in this one are unreal!

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.
