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.

Like all of Florence, this place can be very crowded. But the art is wonderful! As an American, I want to cry about the lack of temperature and humidity control in all of the galleries. People should go before things begin visibly deteriorating.

The plaza is just a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio, the day we arrived they had an antique car show on the plaza which was very interesting. The Palazzo is the entrance to the Giardino di Boboli, which has gardens, museums and a few other shops. Along the streets and side streets are lots and lots of nice stores,... More

We were as impressed by the artwork in the palace as we were with the artwork at Uffizi. Great collection.

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.
