If you love looking at Renaissance art, you must make time to view the Pallatine Galleries collection at the Pitti Palace. The rooms the artwork is housed in are art treasures themselves. The floors are inlaid marble. The ceilings are extraordinary, most have two and three dimensional frescoes. For 10 euros you can get a guide the describes the overall... More

We visited here in October 2013. Not all of the attractions are spectacular but the Galleria Palatina and the Apparmenti Reali were absolutely fabulous with valuable paintings. We loved this section of the Palazzo Pitti. We made our way through the Boboli Gardens which climbed up a hill giving views out over Florence. Up the top was the Porcelain Museum... More

The contrast between the very enormous and impressively stark building and the opulent, detailed interior is astounding. There is so much art on the walls, the ceiling and the decorations that it is mind boggling

The Pitti Palace is huge and Ticket #1 includes the Galleria Palatina with its extensive paintings collection. Be sure to continue to visit the state rooms which are just beyond the exit.

The internal room of the palace are very incredible for the painting. All of them use the prospective to play with the view. These places are usually used to expose some exhibitions every time well done and with very importation things. I strong suggest to visit this place.

The exhibition is arranged very well, works by Rafael are not the only one that has to be seen there. The interior of the entire palace helps to imagine times of the past. The only disadvantage is a poor lighting and small letters on the explanation tags

It is odd that such a large residence is called the "little palace." Is there a bigger one elsewhere? Once home to the all-powerful Medicis, it's a McMansion built to impress. Lovely gardens!

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.
