  • It is an inmeso Palace, very big, but with a number of art, variety of things that you see, you need half a day to do this

  • 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.
