I was blown away by the amount of art, and discovered that there was actually more variety than I expected. The ceilings and furnishings in some rooms were amazing. Luckily, everything was explained well in English.

Our experience began with a major confusion on the ticket pricing. You buy one for the palace/museum and another for the Bobili Gardens/treasury etc. AND another charge that you couldn't for a temporary exhibition. It was pricey with a total of 23 euros a piece. Then you enter, to more confusion. It isn't laid out well inside. If you are... More

In the magnificent royal palace that once housed... More

A recent reviewer noted, "There's better art in town", and, with the Uffizi, he is right, but this is Florence and there are several paintings in the Pitti worth a visit in their own right. Much of the collection can be glided by, but there are exquisite madonnas by Filippo Lippi, Raphael and Botticelli and superb portraits by Raphael, Titian,... More

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.
