  • It is a huge place but not so crowded as other places in Florence. We bought a ticket and thougt that everything was included, anyway we were denied entry to a certain part of the building. There was ...  read more »
  • Visited Palazzo Pitti on 2nd October when there were (surprisingly) open doors. The interior of Galleria Palatina and art works & paintings are just something you can't imagine. 
  • Buy the tickets depending on how what I saw where tickets are divided, but I don't know anything, so all can see. And filled with pretty huge thing is the Palace seen from the outside, but inside, each room is big, and one by one all the room is filled with decorative objects and paintings in each room theme colors? Red Room, green room, or, the pomp is was awesome. Wide garden. I'm a garden made for Lord here ill wife. I think I love your garden, take a look at walking, I want around.

  • i asked for a full ticket to see all the museuns and its turns out that the guy at ticket office only gave me a basic tix to visit a few of all museums plus they dont give any information about tix and they dont have good manners nice place but very bad customer service
  • The palace is really impressive and the gardens are beautiful. Please note that it's really hot there during the summer and there isn't much shade. Wish there was a route for tourists in the garden, since you can get lost if you're not using a map.
  • The garden was just beautiful. There is a little mansion on the very top of the hill where you can enjoy the most italian view of the Toscana
  • 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.
  • Very pretty palace but we didn't have much time to visit all of it. One of the other must-see's when you are here! (after David, Duomo, Uffizi, Pizza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio, this should be quite high up there on your list)
