The ceilings are beautiful! We only had tome to go to the costume gallery and the boboli gardens. The gardens were huge and from the top you could get a fantastic view of florence. It was mainly trees and hedges, but we didn't get to explore them for that long as we had a lot to try and fit in... More

While the climb to the top of the hill to see the ceramics museum was a challenge (few handrails) the view from the top was outstanding, and I could see at least 3 other castles built in the area. The art and fashion displays in the main castle were outstanding .

This is a great place to visit if you want to get to know the history of Florence. Beautiful pieces of art and original furniture are worth the visit.

We had a look at the palace and gardens and were disappointed to see the decline in maintainable If it continues the gardens will not be worth visiting

The stroll through the royal apartments makes for an incredible experience. Each room is its own work of art, in addition to the incredible quantity of paintings in the walls. With each room effectively utilized as a gallery, one is left to imagine how the rooms looked when utilized for their original purpose.

This is not for the faint-hearted! Firstly, make sure your ticket covers what you want to visit, for example the costume museum is on a separate ticket. To avoid queues you can book on line but only a day or so before, not on the day. The palace is huge and effectively consists of several museums. It would take hours... More

Better on a less hot day, we happened to be there during a 96° scorcher, but the story of the "new" palace, opulent gardens, and quaint surrounding streets, it was worth battling the heat. Fantastic photo opportunities of the city also from some of the higher vantage points.

We had limited time when visiting the Pitti Palace so we decided to just tour the gardens. Nice pathways and many opportunities for wonderful pictures. Amazing views of Floence and the Tuscan countryside.

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.
