Building as beautiful as the artwork

We loved strolling around the beautiful palace and soaking up the atmosphere. The bobolink gardens were a pleasant stroll even on a very hot day.

A nice walk from the palazzo vecchio to the expansive grounds. We took in the palazzo, the jewels and the gardens. Make the effort to climb the hill for great views and a nice down to the fountains (not working though).

The art is as wonderful as you would expect, but take your time to enjoy the setting too. This is a stunning palace, and you get to wander through. And don't forget the gardens! Climb to the top (yes the gardens are on a hill) and you will be rewarded with a little China museum as well as views of... More

Not much more can be said about Pitti Palace, but it was everything - and more- than any guide book says it is. There is nothing like the world-class art and treasures in this amazing place! One of the reasons you would ever visit Florence in the first place!!!!!

I am partial to this kind of thing and the palace is huge. Lot's of art but the ceilings are amazing. We also toured the gardens even though it was rainy we knew we weren't coming back so we walked it anyway. They are huge with lot's of paths and shrubs and misc sculptures. Very impressive and enjoyable.

The art work is a must see in Florence. Take the hop-on hop-off bus and it will take you to all the beautiful place that is worth it to see.

We took a cab to the other side of the Arno river first thing in the morning. There was no one there. We wondered through the galleries for more than an hour before people started arriving. The art in this Palace was magnificent and extremely varied. It included paintings, sculptures, miniatures, jewelry, figurines, ornate furnishings, costumes, and painted and sculpted... More

You won't be able to visit all the museums in the Pitti… plan ahead and decide what you want to see… the Costume Museum was a blast when we where there this month. But we've gone to the Pinacoteca painting side & the modern art as well. The silver and armory collections might be your style, too! And we always... More

I got super bored in the Pitti Palace. I purchased the audio tour, and was by myself...the palace itself is gorgeous, and the decor in each of the rooms was fun to see. The art, though, is way too portrait-heavy for my taste (because the Medicis loved to look at themselves), and I found the tour laborious. I guess it's... More

I've only been to the modern art part and the royal rooms, it was quite nice and because it was not crowded, I could enjoy it better. My only complaint is that the shop for souvenirs was very small, I couldn't find anything that I liked. After seeing the souvenir shops at the Vatican Museum, it was really weak but... More
