The Pitti Palace has the Palatine Gallery which has great art in rooms that are spectacularly beautiful. We arrived at the Pitti Palace early, at 8:45 am. We went immediately to the Palatine Gallery and saw all the rooms there slowly. Luckily there were very few people at that time and we were able to enjoy the art in silence. The rooms containing the art were beautifully decorated. Many had large tables made of pietra dura, with beautiful designs. When we first saw these beautiful rooms, I felt a little light headed because seeing so much beauty was a bit overwhelming. The good thing is that the art had explanations in English.
We also then saw the Modern Art Gallery, which has 19th century art. This gallery was very good also. The Medici Treasury was not very impressive. Neither was the Porcelain museum, quite small. The Costume Museum was enjoyable and the designs were dresses from the 20th century by famous European designers. We saw part of the Boboli Gardens because the gardens are immense and we did not have too much time to see everything. We had the combined ticket. It was worth seeing everything. By noon we had finished seeing everything.
