We visited during an epic thunderstorm which made the whole experience very atmospheric. Our main aim was to see the paintings in the Palatine Gallery but we also enjoyed the Regal Apartments, including Napoleon's Bathroom!

I loved Palazzo Pitti! I loved the aura, just sitting there and really liked being there. The appartments are well worth a visit and the general atmosphere is fantastic. The whole area including the gardens is a holiday in itself, amazing, beautiful, memorable. There's no place like it.

If you are interested in the royal apartments, do not miss the free guided tour which is about 30 minutes giving brief introduction of the Medici family and you will have the chance to see the King's room which is not open to the public.

I bought a ticket for the apartment and gallery tour. I enjoyed walking around, but I wish there was more information on how the rooms were used or about daily life of the families while they lived there. Many of the rooms contained mostly art and no furniture. The docents were helpful and one even jumped up to talk about... More

Beautifull palace but not the most beautifull I have ever seen. Large collection of paintings but nothing exceptional.

The collection of art in the Palatina Galleria is excellent. I thought it was as good as the Uffizi Gallery. Since I've read that they are managed by the same organization, they may draw from the same pool of paintings and sculpture. The rooms are beautiful also.

This was a very nice surprise, we thought Pitti would not be as good as Uffizi, but not only the gardens were huge and beautiful, also the exhibits were nice, with some rooms as they were at the time.Very fun to watch.

Love to sit here and people watch amidst lovely art work. Free music by buskers and in the summer there are often free orchestral concerts

Fantastic place filled with beautiful art; those Medici certainly had cash to spend (mostly on themselves it would seem) covering virtually every interior surface of the Royal Appartments with priceless pieces and more gold than the Bank of England. Small cafe is located in the central courtyard as is the entrance to the Boboli Gardens. Some huge classical statues are... More
