The Pitti Palace is huge and Ticket #1 includes the Galleria Palatina with its extensive paintings collection. Be sure to continue to visit the state rooms which are just beyond the exit.

The internal room of the palace are very incredible for the painting. All of them use the prospective to play with the view. These places are usually used to expose some exhibitions every time well done and with very importation things. I strong suggest to visit this place.

The exhibition is arranged very well, works by Rafael are not the only one that has to be seen there. The interior of the entire palace helps to imagine times of the past. The only disadvantage is a poor lighting and small letters on the explanation tags

It is odd that such a large residence is called the "little palace." Is there a bigger one elsewhere? Once home to the all-powerful Medicis, it's a McMansion built to impress. Lovely gardens!

Although the art is fabulous, we actually enjoyed the Bobolink gardens behind Pitti. Be sure and go to Bardini Gardens which are behind the Boboli. Unbelievable Would go back again. There is a fort back there also which we did not have time to visit.

Once the palace of the powerful Medici family, the Palazzo Pitti has since been transformed into a beautiful art collection. You can buy tickets that include a few of the different galleries, so be careful which tickets you are buying when going to the ticket office. The art collection in the Galleria Palatina is gorgeous, and the tour takes you... More

This palace was built by the Pitti family in the 15th century. The Medici made it their main Florentine residence in the mid 16th century. It contains much of the Medici collection including works by Titian, Raphael and Andrea del Sarto.

Arguably less know and popular than their other galleries in Florence, yet the collection is very good. Some real masterpieces of equal and maybe better quality than elsewhere. The modern art gallery adds to the experience .. although this works are off lesser quality and name than the masters.

This museum is situated in Palazzo Pitti, which is actually a museum by itself. Even if one could only see the ceilings of this building, I would already recommend going there. They are amazing, so if you go here: don't forget to look up once in every room! The art collection consists of mostly paintings, but a little too much... More

Do you love art? Even if you don't, you'll be awed be the sheer amount of richness. You'll spend a couple of hours lost amongst masterpieces and lesser known yet still beautiful works of art . The architecture inside and outside is remarkable.
