The first floor is a seperate collection unto itself. The collection, which is predominately decorative arts is exquisite. Plan on about 2 hours, if you wish to browse and take your time. NO PHOTOS The intricate work of art works is outstanding. I do so wish to have had photos ot share. The rooms are intact and of the period.... More

I visited hoping to see the Old Master paintings in the Galleria Palatina. About half of the rooms were closed off without explanation. I felt the paintings in the remaining sections were poorly displayed - crammed into every corner, many too high on the walls to appreciate, poorly lit. Given the huge size of the palace, I'm surprised it's not... More

Had a morning stroll at the Palazzo Pitti gardens. Was comparing this to the Gardens of Versailles in France where I visited last year...which probably wasn't a fair comparison. I guess if you had a couple of hours to spare one morning, then this is something you can consider doing. It wasn't extremely busy and the gardens is a decent... More

We walked to the Pitti Palace not knowing what we'd find. We paid for one of the entrance tickets that excluded the attached gardens. Wealth and history were on show with the artistry in each of the palace rooms. It was interesting and a good time for us.

This is one of the few Florentine palaces open to tourists. There is very little furniture but the over-the-top gilded rooms give an idea of how Florentine royalty used to live. Napoleon's marble bathtub in Avery grand room is interesting.The Palatine Gallery contains works by all the Old Masters, very well displayed, and galleries are nowhere near as crowded as... More

I'll be honest - I'd never heard of this place prior to my visit. I thank my lucky stars that I did so - it is beyond beautiful. There are two types of tickets that you can get - one includes the tour of the palazzo itself, while the other includes the gardens. I opted for the palazzo only, which... More

The palace houses the Museum of Modern Art, the Silver Museum, the Royal Appartments, the Palatine Gallery, the Porcelain Museum, the Carriage Museum, the Costume Gallery and the Boboli Gardens. There are different tickets depending on which you want to see: There is a 3 day cumulative ticket which includes entrance to all of them for 8.50 or 11.50 Euros... More

My wife does the research for our trips and my heart sank when I saw the front of the Palace. But I trusted her and bought the tickets thinking at least we will get out of the heat of the sun for an hour or so. How wrong I could be. Including a visit to the Belvedere and a spot... 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.
