This is a huge palace, at the other side of the river Arno, a few blocks after the famous Ponte Vecchio. You pay to go in, to see the gardens, to see the art exhibitions... Honestly? Just go to see outside, take a rest in the front atrium, always full of people, take some photos and save your money.

So, the Palazzo Pitti, just over the Ponte Vecchio, is big. You can, and perhaps should, spend the best part of a day here. The Palazzo houses the galleria d'arte Moderna (don't be thinking 20th century though (there is some, but not much.), the Silver museum, the costume museum, the porcelain museum, the Palatine gallery, the royal apartments and the...

Maybe we had the wrong expectations when we walked in, but we were expecting a palace and not a museum with a bunch of paintings. If we were looking for paintings we would have gone elsewhere... and the price they charged us for what we got was ridiculous.

Well organized palace / multi Museums in one location. Temporary exhibitions change, as with all great museums. The permanent collection, such as Renaissance Silver, remains ever constant. Right now the "Lapis Lazuli through History" exhibition in on site - and shouldn't be missed !!! Lapis from Rome, Egypt, the Holy Lands and especially Florence, are all collectively grouped. Saw a...

Ahhh...sigh...the Palazzo Pitti is my absolute favorite museum in Florence. Even if they removed all of the art, I would still pay to go in as the architecture, painted ceilings and vistas are so sublime. This always tops my "to do" list when I am in Florence...don't miss it!

We went early in the morning when it is first open. We were the first people there and had the gallery to ourselves which was very nice. We stayed ahead of the crowds all the way through the gallery- only right near the end of the gallery and in the apartments did people begin to catch up with us. Many... More

The building itself would be worth a visit. Personally found getting tickets etc was painless, even if the staff were quite rude. However, the art collections there were pretty average and very religious - the best of it has gone to the Uffizi. However, just to see the rooms etc was amazing - similar to Versailles in Paris. It is... More

The Palazzo Pitti galleries are amazing. Like Versailles, the ceiling frescoes and furniture throughout the palace are as impressive as the world-class art. When we visited, about 25% of the art galleries were closed for renovation, which was disappointing, but we still had more than enough to see. It was a great plan to spend the morning in the Boboli... More

Most visitors wax lyrical about the Pitti and rightly so, but like lots of Italian museums ticketing confusion and queueing take edge of what is a great museum/gallery to visit. Walk there to escape the hubbub of the city centre, its a breath of fresh air. History a plenty and art and sculpture fill every room. Go there before it... More

I visited this place today and was amazed at the amount of artwork, sculptures, gowns in the costume gallery and jewelry and other items throughout the place. The Palace is enormous and has plenty of rooms with beautiful gardens. A must see but it is a lot of walking.

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
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.
