Although the art is fabulous, we actually enjoyed the Bobolink gardens behind Pitti. Be sure and go to Bardini Gardens which are behind the Boboli. Unbelievable Would go back again. There is a fort back there also which we did not have time to visit.

Once the palace of the powerful Medici family, the Palazzo Pitti has since been transformed into a beautiful art collection. You can buy tickets that include a few of the different galleries, so be careful which tickets you are buying when going to the ticket office. The art collection in the Galleria Palatina is gorgeous, and the tour takes you... More

This palace was built by the Pitti family in the 15th century. The Medici made it their main Florentine residence in the mid 16th century. It contains much of the Medici collection including works by Titian, Raphael and Andrea del Sarto.

Arguably less know and popular than their other galleries in Florence, yet the collection is very good. Some real masterpieces of equal and maybe better quality than elsewhere. The modern art gallery adds to the experience .. although this works are off lesser quality and name than the masters.

This museum is situated in Palazzo Pitti, which is actually a museum by itself. Even if one could only see the ceilings of this building, I would already recommend going there. They are amazing, so if you go here: don't forget to look up once in every room! The art collection consists of mostly paintings, but a little too much... More

Do you love art? Even if you don't, you'll be awed be the sheer amount of richness. You'll spend a couple of hours lost amongst masterpieces and lesser known yet still beautiful works of art . The architecture inside and outside is remarkable.

This gallery is certainly less popular than the Ufizzi. However, it is worth visiting while waiting for your turn to get a scheduled visit to the other attractions. There are several gems by e.g Rubens and Tiziano. Also, the interiors are great, with the king's rooms being the main highlight.

The objects and pieces of art on show are amazing. The ceilings are fascinating and quite honestly the whole experience was beautiful. The lights on show are fantastic along with wonderful clocks and busts. The gift shop seemed good value and the ticket price also. The cafe was overpriced but necessary as it was a wonderfully hot day. Unfortunately we... More

If ever a gallery captured the feel of its time, if ever a palace showed the grandure of a building, then this is it. The authenticity of the murals, the paintings,the richness of the Tapestry and the honesty of the curators announcing if a room has been changed makes walking through the palace beautiful, all that is missing is the...
