The Palazzo Pitti was home to some of the most important Italian families. It stands today in Renaissance splendor, the largest museum block in Florence, a wonderland open to the public. You cannot miss these enchanting highlights at Palazzo Pitti, Florence.
Some of the most memorable highlights are not within the complex. There's a reason these gardens are called Italy’s Versailles.
As the main gallery, it is chocked full of Palazzo Pitti history. View the Renaissance greats in high baroque-style rooms of ornate ceilings, elaborate stucco and frescoes.
Go to Michelangelo’s Cavaliere, a Palazzo Pitti architectural highlight. Inside you’ll find one of Europe’s finest porcelain museums complete with Sevres, Meissen and Vincennes.
The Medici Treasury holds fine jewelry, precious crystal, ivory vases, and more, by some of the most significant Italian and European workshops of the 17th to 20th century.
This fabulous documentation of Italian fashion, especially theatrical costumes, dates from the 16th century to present and is housed in the Palazzina della Meridiana wing.
You could easily spend an entire day strolling through the gardens, popping in and out of each wonderful museum. Budget at least two hours to breeze through the essentials, and add an hour if you plan to explore the gardens. Take note that entry into each building is not allowed one hour before closing.
Each museum costs up to 8.50€. If you plan to see multiple collections, buy the Palazzo Pitti biglietti cumulative, an all-access pass for 11.50€ that will let you into the gardens, all of the galleries and the royal apartments for three days.

What People Are Saying About Pitti Palace
Our guide Beatriz was excellent. She were explaining in Spanish, which speak very well. Knowledgeable and very friendly. The ride was easy and with enjoyable views. I can do it again.
This tour was a lot of fun and very informative. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is on a first visit to Florence start out this way. You ride by a lot of the attractions so you get an idea of where things are and can decide what you want to revisit. You also receive a good historical overview so you know something about what you're going to see. As we continued on our visit of the city after the tour, we told many people about it and recommended that they try it. I've also already told friends in the U.S. about it.
Well acted and unusual and a great way of getting behind the history of the Medici family
We enjoyed the tour around Florence and had excellent explanations from our guide!! We had a delicious ice cream, too!!
.....the reservation on GetYG was costly when compared with the ticket we were given when presenting the reservation at the ticket booth -- under 10 euros per person. But in high season probably worth it.
