Top sights in Florence
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 tour guide Veronica was pleasant, welcoming and knowledgeable. She gave us lots of interesting information about the history of the Duomo and was very patient and understanding with my slower pace climbing the steps. Veronica was calm, professional and caring when I needed extra time before climbing the last few steps and ensured that I was feeling okay before continuing with providing the remainder of the tour information at the top. I couldn't imagine a better guide. Would highly recommend.
Loved the bike tour, it was a really good way to see the city, fun but also informative. The bikes were great too as they are assisted e bikes so you whiz up the steep hill to Michelangelo Piazzale for a lovely view point. Claudio (our guide) was really welcoming and nice too. I would definitely recommend this trip!
Tour was great and guide was very knowledgeable as most are. But, like all of my tours with GYG in Italy (3 in total) the directions to the GYG office are terrible and very hard to find. If you use GYG, you must give yourself a lot of time to plan on getting lost.
Excellent tour - the guide (I think her name is Roberta) was amazing and made the three hours, that we have spent on the tour, go by in a minute. Amazing art, amazing tour guide, would definitely recommend. It is my favorite place to visit when in Florence
A great way to see the town. It was our first time using an electric bike which was so easy. Great for people who aren't used to cycling up hills as there is a big hill to get to the square where there is an amazing view of Florence.
