This museum and former home of the Medici family is one of the most important and iconic museums of the world. The place it self is a breathtaking palace, it contains some the most important works of art of all times. Bernini, Da Vinci, David, Canova and all of the masters, have their place here. The gardens are iconic. Absolutely... More

A great array of rooms and objet d'art. Don't try to see everything at the Pitti Palace or you''ll get overloaded. I found the iPad audio guide difficult to use and distracting, but although there is no English signage you can pick up an old-school information sheet in each room and it will describe selected painting and objects for you....

There is a lot of art and architecture to see in Italy and we were in Rome prior to Florence. I think I was overloaded with ART when I visited so I could not fully appreciate the Pitti Palace. The grounds, building and art collection were great but I enjoyed the Uffizi more. My suggestion is to do your research... More

You absolutely have to visit this place, where an important part of the Medici family's artwork collection is displayed, extremely impressive and amazing garden outside.

The Pallazzo Pitti is definitely worthy of a day of any visitor's time as you can enjoy the magnificent great Pallazzo, plus various collections, plus the really lovely Giardino di Boboli adjacent to the Palace and included in the ticket price. The Pallazzo is named after Luca Pitti who commissioned Brunelleschi to design it, though it later sold to the... More

On a wet, Wednesday afternoon, we decided to stop by Palazzo Pitti to get dry. We never intended on visiting here as we did not think we would have the time. We were so glad that we did. On arrival at the Modern Art exhibition set in the state rooms, we were greeted by a student named Marco, offering to... More

lovely pallazzo and gardens. The Costume gallery is amazing, and the art galleries are mind blowing. You can easily walk here from the city centre.

The collection is located in beautifully designed Baroque rooms and contains masterpieces by Botticelli, Perugino, Titian, Andrea del Sarto, Tintoretto, Veronese, Caravaggio as well as Rubens, Van Dyck and many more. The "modern art" collection displays pretty Italian paintings from 1784 to 1924, not so famous, but really worth to be seen (impressions of the Maremma etc.) Do not miss... More

If you like Raffaello, you must visit this museum. There are lots of Raffaello's works and you can enjoy great masterpieces. I prefer this museum to Uffizi museum. Because here is not so crowded. It's possible for you to get a close look at the works. If you make a reservation, you can receive a ticket at the ticket office.... More

Unlike the Uffizi etc., there was no huge queue here so it was a far more relaxed visit. Beautiful paintings and furniture. Look out for the fabulous desk that folds away completely, with its own built-in chair; ingenious as well as beautiful. Lovely views of the Boboli gardens from inside the Palace but too much to do both on the... More
