Nice gardens, grotto and exhibits. Your main ticket will get you to some of the exhibits, you will need another ticket to the rooms of the Palazzo

Enormous Palace so much to see but loads of stairs. Beautiful art and a real insight into a bygone family. Also great views across Florence from the windows on the top floor. My knees were starting to feel the strain though climbing the stairs to go in to the actual palace and then the huge gardens have stairs as well.... More

This is a huge offering that could entertain for days depending on level of interest. The museums offer a glimpse of the over-the-top lifestyles of the ruling class in medieval times while also offering an understanding of the depth of work by the artisans and common people. The Boboli Gardens are a wonderful treat when the weather allows.

A Great way to pass a rainy January day. Each room is filled with incredible art and history, with booklets available in different languages in each room to explain the artworks and furnishings. Well worth a visit. You get a great view of the Boboli gardens from various rooms, but there is a separate charge for the gardens. Avoid the... More

That was the only one we didn't pre book the tickets. Not much of a line but the people working there would leave their place without notice. The palace is huge. You have to pick the ticket that covers the places you want to see in it. The museum parts weren't as awesome as Palazzo Vecchio or Uffizi Gallery were.... More

This was not on our must-see list: they were plenty of other attractions in Florence. But after the Uffizi Gallery and and the Accademia (and with the Vatican museums coming up in Rome which we would be visiting next), we decided to try a less popular attraction just to get some relief from the crowds. There were various interesting museums... More

We were pleasantly surprised to discover on arrival at the Pitti Palace that, because it was the first Sunday of the month, all tickets were free!! Well worth bearing in mind as a trip to Florence can get quite costly quite quickly. There was a bit of a queue due to this but we didn't have to wait more than... More

English guide that is knowledgeable about their history, culture, traditions and the Family! Her personal guidance was beautifully delivered, flowing with morsels of history and we were guided back in time. I am so grateful I met this delightful soul!! I'd absolutely recommend her tour services any day!!!

We were on a last minute trip to Florence and had not purchased any museum tickets in advance so many of the "top spots" were unavailable. We had never been to the Palazzo Pitti on previous trips so we opted to check it out and were rewarded with a fantastic experience. There are some great works of art here but... More

My husband, mother and I visited Palazzo Pitti on a cold day in early December 2016. We opted not to visit the gardens, due to the weather. The museum itself was overwhelming. It contains so much art that pieces are stacked all the way up to the gilded ceilings. I craned my neck a lot to see the paintings at... More

Neighbourhood 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.
