Came upon the place by accident after going to Uffizi. Decided we actually liked this better. We only had time for ticket 1 which takes you to the royal apartments, the contemporary museum (19th and 20th century). It is amazing to see the wealth created by the Medici family and the place where Napoleon lived when he conquered northern Italy.... More

It was very hot the day we visited, nonetheless it was a lovely visit. The art is not to be missed. The building and grounds were beautiful. I recommend bringing lots of water as the vending machine in the gardens does not work well. There is a notice on the machine saying they are not responsible if you do not... More

Designed by Filippo Brunelleschi in the mid 15th century - this imposing palace now houses one of the most important museums in the world. It is rather large and do spend some time going through their impressive collection. The Palatine gallery has some amazing paintings by Titian, Rubens and many other great artists of the baroque and renaissance period. The... More

Huge building, holds a large and beautiful garden behind it. A calm and green place in a city full of people. We just paid to visit the garden and we were happy about it, it was enough for us. Sat in the grass and chilled for bit as well. Many statues and some nice places to sit and just enjoy... More

There is so much to see at the Palazzo Pitti, so make sure you are wearing shoes that will carry you through all the ground you're going to cover! Now like many of the popular tourist sites in Florence it is advisable that you book in advance, lest you want to spend a few hours baking in the sun (or... More

I have mixed feeling about the Palazzo. First you have to buy a ticket. There are A LOT of different tickets. So this was a bit a challenge to pick the right one. If you are not a really big fan of art, just skip it. It's not worth the visit. The palace is enormous! So you need about 2... More

We went to the Palazzo Pitti after having been to the Uffizzi Gallery and the palace at Versailles, so the bar was set pretty high for me. Wow, I was really impressed with this Palazzo! The artwork on the walls was spectacular, as was the decoration all throughout the interior. If you go sightseeing to Florence, I recommend this place... More

Pitti palace is a great museum to visit. Wonderful place with a lot to see. Not good with young children but perfect with teenagers : a lot of paints were in their history book and they will remember them for ever. Maybe a little bit expensive for adults 13€ but half price for students and free under 18.

I was visiting Florence and was able to visit the Palazzo Pitti - wow - amazing. So much to see, quite historic, interesting, and beautiful. Absolutely, worth an multi-hour visit. On the first Sunday of the month, admission is free. So, if possible, visit on the first Sunday of the month.

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.
