The Palatine Gallery and Royal Apartments are essentially a single continuous visit. The walls and ceilings are decorated with amazing frescoes and crown moulding. The paintings of the masters pop up at every turn including numerous works by Raphael and Titian, paintings by Van Dyke, Caravaggio, and Rubens. All of the rooms in the Palatine Gallery and Royal Apartments are... More

We bought tickets for the gardens, but have been told that the palace is also filled with wonderful works of art. The gardens are beautiful even when not in bloom. Just means I will need to come again in late spring. Lots of great views looking back at the city and when you reach the rose garden at the top.

When these gardens were first opened they must have been lovely. The classic layout, the statuary and stone work are all magnificent but now it is all tired, the hedges are moth eaten and in need of pruning and grubbing out. Please restore this gem

This palace is the location of many museum that gather masterpieces of art (Raphael, Titien, Philippo Lippi) from the Medicis family and then the Habsburg. The palace itself is impressive by its wonderful decoration. But it is very expensive !!! Compared to palaces in France for instance.

Our last stop before leaving Florence. The Pitti Palace is stunning, both as an architectural gem and as a gallery. We scheduled our time early in the morning before any crowds had begun arriving, giving us a welcome chance to go slow. The English language guides in each of the mini galleries were most helpful. Many, too many to count,... More

You will bump into almost all of these Palazzo/Piazzale's. Walking around town is a great way to learn the city, you really don't need a taxi

The entrance to this museum and the ticket booth are also used for the Boboli Gardens, another must see attraction. I'm not sure we would have saved money by buying a combination ticket; I believe you pay separately anyway. The entrance ticket for the Galleria Palatina also covers a separate gallery called Museum D'Arte Moderne which was much less interesting... 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.
