  • You can't fail to be impressed by the works which are contained within these walls, beyond even the rooms themselves are a work of art. Despite the strong turnout everything is handled very well, the expectations are really low.

  • Can't understand why there is so little to write about this travel. Despite the fact that the visitors at times less than in the Accademia Gallery, for example, a collection of paintings in the Palazzo Pitti. Botticelli, Raphael, José Ribera, Titian and many others. And what a contrast modest low-key appearance with magnificence and luxury interiors. I went around for a day to a single ticket Boboli Gardens, Villa Bardini and Palazzo Pitti itself. The only thing that didn't like it-costume Museum, quite uninteresting.

  • For us the dimensions of the Palace is the best along with the Uffizi Gallery Florence are impressive Inmensas decoration, the furniture, the rooms curtains a luxury especially rooftops never have seen something similar, furniture curtains fabulous but what leaves you spellbound pictures and especially the amount all walls are filled to the ceiling four rows in many cases, the best masters of painting. Also there are several rooms of modern painting and era dresses, crazy you can spend the whole day, since then must spend several hours 4 or 5 as a minimum and certainly when you leave you will be dizzy of so much beauty and power

  • The gardens are very lovely and pleasant. My goal for next time is picnicking here. The palace itself is quite beautiful and historically rich. TIP: drop your bulky backpacks and stuffs off at the coat check, and they’ll hold it while you’re visiting. It gets hot hiking up and through the gardens, and makes you feel all the more miserable while carrying heavy excess baggage. Take water and snacks only...and your camera too!! The rooms inside the palace are kept very well. Each room has a little stand with cards that tell you information about the paintings in each room. Art lovers rejoice!! There are a lot of paintings for you to see here!!
  • Pitti Palace is HUGE. If you are a big art fan you will enjoy it. We went hoping to learn more about the history of the Medici family who used to reside there but unfortunately this wasn’t the case. The gardens are soooo beautiful and the rooms are lavish. There are lots of steps though, be warned. We went on the first Sunday of the month and it was free!
  • Not knowing much about art or history it did seem rather generic. It would have been helpful if there were audio or tour guides. There are some wonderful art displays and paintings. You can get different types of tickets. One for the art exhibits, one for the gardens or a combined ticket. There is reduced entry after a certain time (I think 4pm)
  • We enjoyed visiting the Pallazo Pitti museum and especially that you get half price if you purchase and enter before 9am. However, I was really disappointed that the costume gallery was closed! I checked the website before and there was no indication there or outside the museum- the signs still led us to the part of the museum where it usually is, and it was only when we arrived at that section that we saw the sign showing that the costume gallery is currently closed. Definitely should have been clear outside the museum before people purchased tickets. Other than that it was very interesting.
  • It is amazing to think that people actually lived here. The furniture and art is fantastic. If one visits, be sure to see the gardens as well.
