I was in Florence for 2 weeks in mid June. Surprisingly there were almost no people during my visit (earky afternoon) and at times I was alone in the rooms which made the experience so much more genuin! The palazzo is a must visit!

The rooms in this palace are stunning, with some stunning painted walls in the Silver Museum. Gardens are a great place to capture some great views of the city

It was obvious early on that we would never be able to give each painting the attention it warrants, so we elected to concentrate on the portraits of which there are many very fine ones by top artists. Even then, it took us two hours to get to the Royal Apartments which are breathtakingly opulent. If you're on a budget,... More

Very interesting building and museum. We did it with a guide and I recommand it. The most amazing part for us was the map room where there is a hidden door that the guide opened for us. It lead to a "secret" gallery. Very nice visit.

We arrived in Florence late in the afternoon and, on passing the Pitti Palace, decided to get some information for the next day. The door was open so we went in and sat on a bench in the foyer to wait for the staff member to finish dealing with someone. She interrupted her conversation and literally screamed at us from...

An incredible amount to view here. Beautiful gardens too. Get there early to view the clothes museum. We lost track of time and missed it as it closes a little earlier!

It is a large palace with plenty to see. The decorations in the rooms are stunning and truly a must see destination. The artwork within could rival the Uffizi Gallery. If you have the time to visit definitely do so.

This is a huge palace inside and out. Inside, the floors are laced with Medicean art as well as more modern art. The furnishings of the grand palace haven't really been preserved so it's a little difficult to envisage the Grand Dukes of the past living there. We didn't visit the gardens as it wasn't really the weather for it... 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.
