The gardens are absolutely amazing. We ran out of time to see th Grotto which I was gutted about, and we were accompanied by a Frenchman and his son trying to find the entryway to the Fort (which we never found because we ran out of time) but there's a lot to see here. There's a museum dedicated to fashion... More

The palace is split into sections and very large nice gardens but be warned its like hill walking. An amazing place even for... More

We didn't know much about Pitti palace when we booked our ticket to attend the museum. As we worked out way through Louvre and Versailles and assumed we saw Opulence at its best we were taken aback by the sheer glamour of Pitti palace. From the art to the ceiling details was breathtaking. We signed up to do the Kitchen... More

This is the Medici collection that was left to the City by the lst Medici in the 18thC. Any one of the hundreds of painting would merit a room on its own in any other provincial art gallery. there are so many here-- 13 Raphaels in one room alone that their magnificence is lost. You need multiple visits. It's pretty... More

After the Uffizi it is hard to believe there could be any more art in Florence, so I thought I was coming to view a palace. Pitti is definitely a palace, and a spectacular one at that. But every inch of every wall of every magnificent room is covered in the most wonderful world of art. Place the Pitti in... More

So the gardens here totally worth the 7€ on their merits :) then you bump into all these random museums - ceramics, sculpture, I really only went for the garden and was really happy with the museums - if you're hankering for greenery like I was after several days of European concrete and cobblestones - this place is awesome!

If we hadn't had the Florence Card - walked straight in - there was a 2 hour queue for tickets (looked like). But as fast as they processed people they let everyone in! So it was so crowded on a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon. Interestingly the main Gallery rooms were dark, and seemed small even though they were big... More

You expect a palace but it is like the National Gallery times 10. Very unexpected. When you buy tickets make sure your reserve them so you can pick them up and go straight in.

Honestly, it's the most important museum of Firenze. It's the history alive, to be admired! We went at 11AM and spent about 1h queuing. Definitely it's a good price. ;)

This is really four museums for the price of one: Old masters, modern (but check their definition - don't expect impressionists or pre-Raphaelites), silver, and costume. For us, one of the highlights was the trompe-l'œil (particularly some of the ceilings) in the old master's gallery. It was so outstanding that even if you removed all the paintings and sculptures it... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
