This is the palace that was built by Pitti but was then purchased by the infamous Medici family and then Napolean in his campaigns of taking over countries actually lived in as well..it is rich in history and art. A must see!!

This is an amazing Palazzo which is now used to show some of the huge collection of art amassed by the Medici family. From the outside, it is pretty unprepossessing and actually quite bland, so nothing prepares you for the opulence inside. In most of the rooms, the ceilings alone are worth the entrance fee.

There is much more to see and do, the gardens are a few footsteps away (but to be paid for separately). There is a lively student quarter... More

This place just overwhelms with its sumptuous decorating and high quality art. It's a must if you enjoy art. We visited on the first Sunday in the month which meant we all got in free. This made it an even better treat!

Impressive and magnificent palace. The great ballroom at the beginning is just astonishing, the detail in every room is a proof of the Medici family power.

This often overlooked museum is one of the most beautiful I have ever visited. Amazing paintings and sculptures decorate the ornate rooms of this palace. The luxuriousness and beauty are overwhelming.

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
