Astonishing collection, in gorgeous setting. Room after room of masterpieces of Western European art. Worth the trip across the river. No need to pre-book tickets -- never gets really crowded. Neighborhood surrounding museum is lovely, nice shops, restaurants.

Excellent collection! The paintings by Raphael, Titian, Botticelli, Andrea del Sarto, and a few other great artists, are remarkable. Sadly, the one Caravaggio they have was on loan.

Great collections of 17-19 century art works. Besides the art work, each room has their original designs and decorations, which are more intriguing than the art works.

The staff tries to work as less as possible so it pushes you to leave this amazing gallery 20-30 minutes earlier. I bought (not cheap) ticket and entered in the afternoon so every minute was precious. The book stores are regulary closed 30 minutes before the sheduled time.

We visited the lapis lazuli exposition inside Palazzo Pitti. The exposition was good. The rooms in which the artefacts were exposed were stunning. Decorated with paintings from the 1640. Worth a visit, the entry is included in the 10€ ticket for the Boboli Garden.

A great museum and palace. Works by all the big names in unbelievably ornate rooms. A window into the life of the Medici dukes. Look for the "Madonna Della Sedia" by Raphael. Totally different from all other Madonnas. Not insipid and saccharine---this young woman is savvy and totally capable of raising the Son of God

Wandered here while waiting for dinner to start at restaurant and decided to go visit its palatine/modern gallery. We were quite surprised at the extensive labyrinth of rooms all cramped full of Renaissance art. These may not be drawn by artists as famous as those displayed at Uffizi, but makes for good viewing too and the rooms are quite something... More

There is so much to see in the Pitti… it really is six different museums in a huge complex. Come prepared to see what you want to see -- wandering will just make you dazed because it's far too much to see in a day -- and visit what you will. The Rubens, the Titians, the Raphaels are among their... More

It could easily take you a full day to see everything at Palazzo Pitti. We were fortunate to strike the only day of the year (first Sunday in June) when all state museums are free to enter. The only thing we couldn't view was the apartments which was disappointing but not much we could do as they were closed. The... More
