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

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

My wife and I have been to Florence a few times. We spent about 1/2 day at the Pitti Palace or Palazzo Pitti. While there we discovered FREE tour of the kitchens. You have to go and sign up in advance. As I recall the tours were given at 9:30, 11:30, 1:30 and 3:30. This was in November - I... More

The sight of the Palazzo is just the begining of what awaits you inside the Pitti Palace. Prepare to be blown away.

The Pitti Palace looks like a fortress from the outside. It hides an expansive garden and several museums. It is a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio.

This palace is awesome. Trt to climb all the staira and visit every inch of this palace. The information about the art work is helpful and sufficient. The modern art gallery was well designed with the time concept. I am overwhelmed with the palace.

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.
