Palazzo Pitti is not just an art gallery but a work of art in itself. Each room is decorated with frescos and hardware unmatched by any other royal palace around the world. Caravaggio's Cavadenti is only one of the many amazing works of art you can admire. From a structural and overall experience I like this place better than the... More

This is actually four museums in one with two gardens attached. You can buy packages for different museums or all. I mistakenly bought tickets to gardens that only gave me entry to the costume and silver museums. The museums are housed in the Palace so you do get a great experience of the grand architecture and lavish interiors.

The art in the Galleria Palatina is every bit as beautiful as the art int the Uffizi, plus there as no line to purchase the ticket.

Full of classic pieces, 1400s and 1500s, my favorite Boticelli, Birth of Venus and Spring, reservation is a must, a few days in advance, they give you a number and an hour. You pay an extra 4 Euros to ticket for that, but you are sure to get there. If you don't see anything else in Florence, see only this... More

On my third trip to Florence, I finally made it to Palazzo Pitti, Florence's answer to Versailles. Room after room of magnificence in art, architecture, furniture, tapestries ... Well worth the wait for tickets. Allow a whole morning or afternoon and take a stroll around the gardens as well. Gorgeous!

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
