My wife and I traveled to Florence especially to visit the art collection at the Pitti Palace. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. The collection is massive and there are some interesting works of art, if you can find them. But the museum's collection is poorly organized and except for special exhibits, the curation is virtually non-existent. We visited on a warm but not hot day in October and the airless museum was uncomfortably hot. I would not try to visit the museum on a hot summer day. All in all, there are many other cultural sights to see in Florence and I would not highly recommend the Pitti Palace for people with only a limited time to enjoy this wonderful city.
