I could have spent days in and around this beautiful palace and gardens. The art collection is breathtaking.
Loved the Palace, the best part after the gardens! We toured the gardens first, then the Galleria Palatina & it was truly extraordinary to try to put yourself in the original family's place- seeing the type of furniture, beds, table, art & everyday things they used in their lifetime. I loved it. Used our Firenza card to get in quickly,... More
We wandered in one Sunday afternoon last October, and spent the most immersing couple of hours strolling through this lovely museum. It wasn't just one particular feature, but the combination of the artworks, the mural & ceiling decoration, the history of the Palace and the general ambience as you walk from room to room. We're so glad we went across... More
The Galleria Palatina’s exterior architecture will draw you back to the good old days of the past because the building itself would tell you about how historical it is. Inside you would get to know about the different historical pieces that the museum has to offer. All the art collections are neatly displayed and well represented. This is the best... More
Walking through the Pitti Palace is worthy for itself, as a display of the wealth in Florence.

Just to mention that I'm not well familiar with art and Renaissance but these pictures were amazing! Must see gallery, paradise for eyes!
This museum holds much of the opulence of the Medici's - but the two ticket streams are a bit of a rip off. They separate the gardens + costumes +apartment from the modern art and other museums in the building. The collections, of course are sublime, but overpriced tickets left a sour taste in the mouth.
This enormous complex across the Arno River from the old city is really plain on the outside. There are two tiers of ticket pricing, one for 8.5 euros and the other for 10 euros. Each ticket covers different areas of the palace compound. We chose the 8.5 euro ticket because we wanted to see the living quarters and the the... More
But there is so much art to see, true! the celings and walls and woodwork and marquettry are perhaps more impressive than much of the art, though there are Caravaggios and Rubens and Giorgione
We tripped across this gem after deciding not to line up for the Ufizzi and instead just wandering town. The entrance fee is rather steep (€23 when we were there) but there is more than enough to keep anyone busy for at least a whole day - in fact so much so that it became a little overwhelming. I particularly... More
