This is one of the most historic parts of Florence with its links to the Medici family. The gardens are wonderful and the art and sculpture is superb. It has a nice cafe in the courtyard area and there are also some good places to eat lunch just in front of the building. The street in front of the Palazzo... More

A place worth visiting and spending time in if you like the rich art, sculptures, and architecture. I am not much into history yet I got intrigued and engrossed in reading and looking.

Someone who suffers from ADHD would have a difficult time here. They are rooms and rooms of art and decorative ceilings, floors, walls, furnishings, etc. Across the Arno and in a more quiet section of Florence. Somewhat like a small Hermitage in St. Petersburg in terms of palace turned museum with state rooms, throne room etc. Several remarkable Botticelli madonnas... More

The Pitty Palace is home to some outstanding rt work. But the interiors of this palace are incredible. Of all the museums we visited, this was the most incredible. I would rate this the most impressive of all the museums in the city.

This is the best museum in Florence. Is huge so when visiting is necessary quite a lot of time. I loved the internal gardens. Perfect to have a walk and take some pictures after seeing all those wonderful paintings inside the musem.

The setting is perfect. The art is displayed beautifully and the day we went, there were no crowds. They have a better selection of artwork than the Uffizi and seeing the gardens is like the icing on the cake. So happy they kept the original look and haven't tried to modernize the setting.

The Palatina has a ton on each wall. BUT if you pick up the guide and look just at the ones in red, you will see the best. Unfortunately the don't have enough in English. Also, notice the stone work in the tables. Pietre Dure. Beautiful! Later go the the museum that has more and explains how to make them.... More

I highly recommend taking a few hours to walk through this fantastic museum as it has such a vast collection that there is something of interest for everyone. Make sure to get your tickets early to avoid a long line.

Well worth the visit after the Ufizzi. Can easily spend a day here. It's only downpoint is the vast quantitiy of paintings. Each room has 3 rows of paintings, and all four walls. Get the guidebook to understand which one's to look at. Enjoy works by Raphael, Titian and Rubens and more. Worth the trip for any art buff.
