  • As per title I went back after a few years, definitely "out" tourist season and cold days but I was puzzled to see the poor lighting around, strange, few bars open. Too bad! Continue the walk up to the Pitti Palace and then plunge in its museums is a wonderful thing, but I don't recommend messing at night:(

  • I do not understand some negative reviews. It is the second most beautiful Museum after the offices. Do not miss the famous palatine Gallery (by entering on the right): a succession of head of the NSG, a festival of Raphael, in short was unbelievable, a Museum, go straight after the ponte vecchio.

  • We bought the small ticket for CA. 8 euro and thus had access to the porcelain Museum, the Boboligarten, the gallery and the Museum of costumes. This was sufficient. The Gallery incredibly beautiful and imposing.

  • Two different sets of tickets are available. One is 10€ and includes the gardens and some of the less fascinating museums/exhibits. The gardens are definitely worth visiting under this ticket, but the museums were relatively not impressive. The other ticket is 13€ and includes some of the, what appeared to be, more interesting exhibits, although I did not purchase this ticket. Definitely worth visiting the gardens nonetheless. A ton of walking, but it is all very beautiful with fantastic views to the city as well.
  • Very interesting Palace gives you a sense of what life was like for wealthy people 200 to 400 years ago. Interesting art work and structural details that have either been restored or recreated.
  • With five different museums inside, and a really giant garden, its a magic a incredible place. Everything here its gigantic. Note: in the hall, at the entrance, they used to fill it up with water and play battleship. Amazing!
  • Go! This is one of the reasons you should go to Florence in the first place: to see amazing art, sculpture, and a beautiful landscape and view of the surrounding cityscape.
  • Tickets are a bit pricey depending on how many places in the estate you want to go. I'd highly recommend the garden if you only have a couple hours! Absolutely stunning, low crowds, and quiet atmosphere.
