Extremely art oriented

I think this is only for the people who can understand the kind of art displayed here.

You can see some amazing pictures and tematic rooms. (EX: Room of Hercules)

Rude staff, lack of minimum guidance, beautiful paintings
Jun 2021 • Couples
The main atraction is the art gallery. Very nice, with a fine collection. However, almost without explanation about the paintings (except for some thematic rooms and paintings in the ceiling). A very rude staff, incomplete information, no free maps or a proper introduction to better guide the visit. The palazzo not provide even a free tap water! Looks like that after you pay €38 for the ticket, they are doing a favor to allow you to visit the palace. This review are not based just in one or two staff, but in several that we had contact during our the visit.

No information at all
May 2021
The museum is old style with all the walls full of paintings without a specific path or cultural meaning.
Due to the pandemic (?!?!?!) no information were available (neither audi- guides nor guides) leaving you only the label on the painting with the author and the title.
Check if the situation has improved since my visit, otherwise is wasted time and money.

Walking art gallery
Oct 2020 • Couples
Large gallery and museum located next to the Boboli gardens. Worth a visit if you have time, but not a must see in my opinion.
The complex is pretty big and is literally a walking art gallery.

A must see
Oct 2020
Visited twice in Oct. 2020. We absolutely LOVED the "Lupi arrivo a Firenze" installation (and still rave about it) by Liu Ruowang outside the palace (a very forbidding building not to my taste at all). There were children climbing on the wolves thus giving a gorgeous patina to the oxidised cast-iron statues--lovely, lovely. GO! GO! GO!

We disliked the pretentious, even hideous neo-classical decor created for Napoleon and the Hapsburgs in some of the rooms and the way the paintings are hanged (same as in Chantilly for ex.), stacked up in such a way they are often almost invisible, and certainly difficult to appreciate because of the reflection from the windows and lamps. I believe they should not try to show them all so we could see them more easily (some are far from exceptional).

However the paintings are of course unforgettable. As with other museums I shall only mention what I would recommend to a friend: the 4 Poussin landscapes (yes, 4 of them!), the 2 Salvator Rosa harbour scenes (I never knew he had painted any), Tintoretto's "Deposition, the Raphael(s) of course (some moved from the Uffizi) particularly the self-portrait and the Madonnas, the Titian(s) particularly "Ippolito de Medici", "Portrait of a Man", "La Maddalena" (gorgeous brushwork of her hair), Rubens(s) particularly one of the very rare lanscapes all the more so as it is not apocalyptic but pastoral unlike those in Vienna, Veronese's "Portrait of a man". Of course do not overlook all the Tintoretto(s), Bronzino(s), etc.

So dirty
Aug 2020 • Couples
Gorgeous, opulent state rooms but It wouldn’t kill them to do a bit of cleaning. There’s just no excuse for everything being covered in dust and looking uncared for. If I worked there I’d offer to bring a feather duster in and do it myself but none of the staff look like they could give a damn.

We purchased the tickets to the palace and garden and were pleasantly surprised by all the historic beauty. My son, 9 years old was amazed and delighted and really enjoyed the palace. This was simply breathtaking. A must when in Florence.

Ah yes, another opulent Italian museum
Jul 2020
Pitti palace offers a handful of museums, for which you must purchase tickets individually. I purchased tickets only for the Galleria Palatina / Galleria Arte Moderna. The building itself is immense and inside are numerous rooms with fantastic ceiling paintings, sculptures, wall paintings, etc. In my opinion, a must see to learn about art and history of Florence over the last several centuries. Reserve tickets in advance (I think this may be a requirement during COVID times, so check) and avoid any line/queue.

Magic Palazzo Pitti
Jul 2020 • Solo
Such an outstanding building! From the outside the immense facade is so beautiful: simple but still effective. On the inside you have “l’ imbarazzo della scelta”!
The incredible Boboli Gardens or the 4 museums that are housed in the palace.
The history of the palace: Medici residency, Lorena residency, Napoleon “not residency” and finally the Savoia Court is fantastic and everyone has left something for us to see!
Unmissable!
