Temperature over 35 degrees when we visited but well worth the effort as it is such a magnificent location with the view across the river Arno to The Duomo and the Campanile di Giotto. I'm not an art freak; in fact I'm a Philistine but I was really impressed by it all. definite 5 star city.

This is a must see, but be warned it is not well signed or staffed. If you have a Firenze Pass go to the entrance NOT the ticket office further down. The staff is not well trained or welcoming and can put a negative on the experience so be prepared. After the Palace portion back track and take the Grand... More

Makes you wish you were a Medici! Stunning, do not miss this when you visit Florence. Make sure you visit the gardens, they are as good as the palazzo.

The Pitti Palace is well worth a visit although it is not cheap to do so. However, we spent all day viewing the royal apartments and a number of other museums located within the palace buildings (Costume museum etc) The Boboli Gardens are also a feature of this historic landmark although you will have to pay extra for admission to...

We spent a half a day in the Pitti gardens. It was women's day so my girlfriend didn't have to pay entrance fees (I believe - or it was discounted price). I highly recommend visit to the garden if you are in Florence and this is walk-able distance from Ponte Vecchio. The gardens are well kept and the building interior... More

The website says one set of the prices but when you turn up the prices are different. To enter the palace and the modern art gallery was 13 euros due to a temporary exhibition but this ticket didn't allow access to the Bobboli Gardens. To go in the gardens you had to buy a seperate ticket costing 10 euros to... More

Loved this place. Lots to see takes a while to get around it be prepared to have aching feet. Loads of rooms filled with paintings and sculptures. Drapes on the windows are very special. Wall coverings fabulous.

Located a short walk the other side of the Ponte Vecchio, this is well worth a visit if you have a few hours to spare in Florence. You buy your tickets at the far end of the front of the building, and can opt for different combinations of ticket. We went this time for the Boboli gardens, costume gallery, and... More

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.
