  • Pitti Palace you spend at least a full day ... 5 museums in one location, you switch from the Palatine Gallery housed in sumptuous halls of the Palace, full of extraordinary paintings (Raphael, Titian, Van Dyck ...) at the Gallery of modern art with the Tuscan painting of 800, from stunning porcelains in the building block in the heart of the Boboli Gardens to the treasures of sacred gold (Silver Museum), ending with the costume Gallery. The latter staged in dusty, dirty, shame indeed! Security staff often noisy, busy in their chatter from bar, oblivious to disrupt the visit of the people. A little slovenly nature jarring compared to the beauty of the loc1

  • The Palace is a real art gallery, with interesting pictures and architecturally well preserved. The manicured gardens.

  • 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.
