Palatine Gallery is magnificent. See the Royal Apartments ... Look carefully "wooden doors" beacause these are unique. Personally have not seen anything to equal them... then ... Caracaggio ... Do not miss it would be a great loss!

For me this was a rather overwhelming amount of art but others will really enjoy it. Fantastic rooms in the various areas of the Palace. During our visit the outside temperatures were very high 37C which meant that we spent very little time in the outside gardens which have very little shade. We are on a FIRENZE Card so our... More

When the Medici built their palace at Via Larga know now as Medici Ricardi, all the other important families of the city tryed to compete building bigger and nicer palaces. The Pitti family won, but they had finally to sold their home to the Medici. The palace was enlarged in different moments and was used as the first royal palace... More

There is so much artwork in Florence that it's overwhelming. If you are a hard core art fan, you'll probably love it here. If you are more casual, spend your time at the Academmia or Bargelo.

We spent around 4 hrs in the museum in the company of an excellent guide. So many paintings by the greatest artists and so little time to view them all! The sheer number of works is just overwhelming. On the ground floor we saw the Lapis exhibition of works from museums around the world. In a word - stupendous! The... More

Sleeping Cupid is here. One of his best pictures. Along with many other wonderful works of art. Pitti Palace doesn't have the long queues that Uffizi does so maybe stop here if your time in Florence is limited.

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.

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.
