  • The palace, which houses several important museums, was built in the second half of the 15th century by project of Filippo Brunelleschi for rich banker Luca Pitti. Pitti's intention was to build a...  more »
  • There is so much history and art here - it can be overwhelming at times. My suggestion is to pick and choose what you want to see. Our teenagers got a bit bored about an hour and a half in. If you...  more »
  • This is a must see. I've visited many palaces and historical building/squares/places, but this is by far the most opulent and exquisite. There's so much to see and experience that you need to manage.....  more »

  • I had a great time in that palace. Already by its architecture which is super and very original. Then we go inside and visit. Each piece is a work of art where works of great beauty and surprising quality are displayed. You can take headphones to explain yourself in French in order to understand what you see. A must visit
  • Staff is great. We got breakfast included and the restaurant is on the 6th floor roof with wonderful views and tremendous food. The rooms are small but the price is right for what you get. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and it was great also. There are so many places to eat that are within a short 5 minute walk including a Michelin 1 star. Amazing.
  • Amazing palace! If it wasn't free the day that I went, I probably wouldn't have paid. It is a great palace but empty and simple, just filled with paintings and a few more galleries. It is lacking that sense of who lived there. But that is my opinion, but it is a very nice palace, the rooms are very intact and every painting and sculpture is amazingly conserved.
  • In my opinion, this place overshadows the Uffizi Gallery by a mile. I think that it has a much better history behind it with a lot of nicer paintings (I think more valuable too but could be wrong about this). The added advantage here is that you get to witness much personal history to those who ruled the city. Definitely a place to go to when you come to Florence.
  • Palace is beautiful and worth seeing. But, I had a bad experience. I went to visit it with my two colleagues which one of them is under 25 years. Everyone under 25 pays reduced ticket price of 2 euros (regular is 16). Guy who sells tickets did NOT WANT TO sell me reduced ticket because I AM NOT FROM EUROPEAN UNION!!! So, tourist from Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, soon England, Asia, North and South America, Africa and Middle East be aware that your children WILL HAVE TO PAY FULL TICKET PRICE because they are NOT FROM EUROPEAN UNION! That is clear case of DISCRIMINATION based on nationallity! DISGRACE! I planned to be in Italy for a month and this happened on tenth day. What can I expect next?
