Great deal for this amazing exhibition... some museums are only worth €2 but I would have been happy to pay more than that for this one ! Beautiful pieces of art all over

Amazing collection!

Is such a privilege to visit Florentine Museums without tourists...you feel so special!!!
So after 40 years I dedicated 3 hours to the museums of Palazzo Pitti and La Galleria Palatina and the Royal/Ducal apartments are the top of the top. The paintings that adorn the walls are mesmerising, the rooms heavily decorated and the wonderful Pietra Dura tables are there just for...me. I went at the opening at 8,30 and it really was a private touring...amazing, unforgettable!

Better Than Uffizi
Feb 2020 • Solo
This was the main reason I came to the Palazzo Pitti - to see the apartments. The collection of art is unbelievably massive. However, unlike in the Uffizi, the art is well labeled and very useful information cards give a brief history of each piece. The furnishings are very well cared for and really gave me an idea as to how these families lived during their heyday. The staff members I interacted with were friendly and very knowledgeable. I was thrilled to see Jan van Huysum’s “Vase of Flowers” on display having being returned from Germany last year after being stolen by the Nazis during WW2.

Incredible place to spend the afternoon!
Sep 2019
Walked in not really knowing what to expect. Saw several masterpieces and an interesting exhibition of clothing throughout the ages.
This is one of those places that made me want to learn more about the Medici family. Amazing history here!

Very Good Museums
Dec 2019
The Palazzo Pitti has a few museums. I only had an afternoon so I saw the main museum and the 'contemporary' art gallery. It is a very well done museum with some impressive art. The Palazzo has the added benefit of the rooms being ornately decorated. Neither of the galleries I visited were crowded and the staff were kind and helpful. If you like art museums, this deserves to be on your A-list.

lighting
Dec 2019
It is a wonderful collection of High Renaissance and Baroque pictures, but the lighting is so poor that many of the darker pictures were invisible in winter light. Details couldn't be discerned at all. One significant Titian portrait, that of Tommaso Mosti, was hung between two windows and was thus merely a dark shape on the wall. I couldn't see it at all.

Former residence, a lot of art objects. Check out the views thru the windows while visiting- the gardens, the views of the old town etc.

We were easily overwhelmed with the artwork at Pitti Palace. I am glad we had a guide with us! Stunning place for a visit.

Renaissance Art
Oct 2019 • Friends
If you are not a fan of Renaissance art, you will not enjoy this museum. Dark paintings in dark rooms did not make for a pleasurable experience.
