This is one of the must see places in Florence. You have to plan at least half day for this palace. It has many sections and very very big and nice garden (or I should call it as small forest with full of statues). Don't miss it.

Although my wife and I have been going to Italy for 20 years, we didn’t visit the Galleria Palatina (Palatine Gallery), one of the museums in the Pitti Palace, until 2014. After that visit, we felt that we NEEDED to go back. One visit just wasn’t enough. The opulence is jaw-dropping. As other reviewers have mentioned, the Galleria Palatina is... More

Great old masters, but too many paintings. I had to go there twice, but I have no regrets. The ticket was 13 euros.

What a pleasure to view this amazing collection of art masterpieces without competing with the selfie taking tourists we saw in front of the statue of David or the crowds at the Uffizi. On a summer afternoon I was able to take my time admiring the Raphaels, Titians,Caravaggios, Bronzinos, etc. There are even wonderful paintings by non-Italians like Rubens (... More

This is my second visit to the Pitti palace - the last was 23 years ago. The palace is stunning with rooms literally plastered with art. The size is manageable without being overwhelming. The procession through the rooms is logical and efficient. There weren't a large number of people so you could enjoy the art at a relaxed pace. A... More

Just when you think you're never going to arrive, you turn the corner and see the final few steps ahead of you. After some dispute with the tickets (we went on the free Sunday in the month and one ticket-checker refused us entry with a Boboli Gardens ticket, whilst the other waved us through. This being despite the fact that... More

Much to look at and lots of historical items and information in this Galleria. Good indoor attraction if you get inclement weather.

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.
