This museum holds much of the opulence of the Medici's - but the two ticket streams are a bit of a rip off. They separate the gardens + costumes +apartment from the modern art and other museums in the building. The collections, of course are sublime, but overpriced tickets left a sour taste in the mouth.

This enormous complex across the Arno River from the old city is really plain on the outside. There are two tiers of ticket pricing, one for 8.5 euros and the other for 10 euros. Each ticket covers different areas of the palace compound. We chose the 8.5 euro ticket because we wanted to see the living quarters and the the... More

But there is so much art to see, true! the celings and walls and woodwork and marquettry are perhaps more impressive than much of the art, though there are Caravaggios and Rubens and Giorgione

We tripped across this gem after deciding not to line up for the Ufizzi and instead just wandering town. The entrance fee is rather steep (€23 when we were there) but there is more than enough to keep anyone busy for at least a whole day - in fact so much so that it became a little overwhelming. I particularly... More

La Galleria Palatina is a great place were Florence story end and begin again. The last remaining member of the Medici family married the Elettore Palatino (portavoce of the Catholic Church in Germany) and she left all her Medici inheritance to Florence not allowing the city to get rid of it! Wonderful and thoughtful gift that still make Florence the... More

Excellent, worth taking a trip here and seeing what life of royalty was like back in the day If you're there in the summer, time your visit to this gallery after looking around the Boboli gardens (you will appreciate the air conditioning! )

The Palazzo Pitti deserves at least two days, especially because the art in the Palatina Galleries is so densely packed that it's impossible to grasp. In a typical museum room, there are perhaps fifteen paintings per room, while in most rooms here, there are fifteen or more paintings per wall, with at least five or six masterpieces on each wall....

If you go to Florence you must get a day inside here. The museum is great and you can learned a lot about history but the really amazing places is the gardens. Be carful you need time to walk in the gardens, seating, drink and enjoy the view. Don't think that with some hours you know all :), remember think... More

The Palazzo PItti is impressive to see from the outside and packed with artworks. I moved quickly through the numerous galleries because I wanted to the see the Raphael paintings and get outside to the Boboli gardens. The Raphael madonnas are lovely and very different from each other.

Not well organised and with the good paintings crowded out with too much mediocrity. Not too crowded - certainly less than the Uffizi or Accademia - but paintings were stacked up on walls with little regard for their merit or inter-relationship. Not our best visit!
