The Gallery occupies the entire left wing of the first floor of the Pitti Palace, which was the residence of the Medici’s. The attraction holds a range of stunning artwork but can be rather expensive to enter.

Although it's worth going to the Uffizi and the Academia, we actually preferred the Palantina Gallery because on the day we went, it was not crowded and it was easier to view and enjoy the art on display. Since we were in Florence for several days, we visited the Boboli Gardens and the Porcelain Gallery on a separate day. That... More

Make sure you visit here there is so much to see. Some galleries are pointless but others are great. It really needs a few hours - at least half a day,

If you like Dolci ( and I had never heard of him before I arrived ) it's a great exhibition ...there is an extensive collection on display and what I really liked was in some sections they showed you the pictures in development or in different incarnations ... I became a fan

There was a temporary exhibit of Carlo Dolci (1616-1687) paintings. His work is spectacular and some of the finest work that we saw in our trips to Italy. The Gallery where his paintings were displayed did not allow photographs (unfortunately). His work actually provided an amazing benchmark for determining the various painting eras. His work is so detailed and lifelike... More

This ancient monument on the Arno River was originally populated by the butchers and fish merchants of Florence but because of the stench of the bones, and animal carcasses being tossed into the river by the merchants, the Medici family had the butchers banished and replaced them with the gold merchants who remain today. A great place for a gift... More

A palace and an art gallery of overwhelming opulance. If you only see one part of the Pitti Palace, this is the most important part to see. In addition there are several other museums and the gardens but some require separate tickets.

This is absolutely fantastic art galleria! Medici assembled all the best of their time. Even not widely known artists are presented by masterpieces! 4 hrs passed as one. I would recommend to book the tickets in advance. Also good to come before 10.00 when not so much people.

This attraction offered stunning artwork, but, also a snake peek into how those of the Renaissance truly lived. Remarkable!

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
