This is a very big museum with lots of steps, there is a lift but it is difficult to find. I bought this with a combined ticket for the Uffize which I went to late in the day on one of the summer evening openings....More
This palace is definitely worth visiting when in Florence.
We chose to do the Palatine Palace coupled with the Boboli Gardens and on advice made sure to get to the ticket office as early as possible (rather than pre-buying an organised tour). This way we...More
You could easily spend a day here if you wanted to do justice to the huge range of objects and paintings on display. The collection is eclectic and most people will skip content, but the most impressive feature by far is the huge range of...More
You need a whole day to visit Palais Pitti and his seven museums inside; imposant palace with a big stone facade; many sculptures, paintings, furnitures;
Very nice is also the visit of the gardens, il Giardino di Boboli, behind the palace, on the hill, one...More
My roommate and I chose to visit this museum on the first Sunday of the month, during which all state-sponsored museums are free. It wasn't what we expected-we chose it because we plan to visit all of the art museums and many churches with our...More
We visited here on 03/23 and it was deserted, we did not see more than 100 people inside when we were there. The palace was built in the late 15th century and expanded over the years to the current configuration. It is home to numerous...More
Florence is a city surrounded by beautiful art and the palace is full of beautiful artwork. The construction of this severe and forbidding building was commissioned in 1458 by the Florentine banker Luca Pitti (1398-1472), a principal supporter and friend of Cosimo de' Medici.
Ok. The Duomo is mind blowing, but so are the lines waiting to get in. A Km walk away is the Pitti Palace which in a hot day, was almost deserted at 10am. We spent the whole morning in the adjoining Boboli Gardens. They’re impressively...More
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through
Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.

Both are wonderful places to visit! However, I think everyone in your party including the teens would enjoy Uffizi over Pitti. There is more variety in the art - different periods, paintings, sculpture, frescoes, etc... More
Both are wonderful places to visit! However, I think everyone in your party including the teens would enjoy Uffizi over Pitti. There is more variety in the art - different periods, paintings, sculpture, frescoes, etc. Also has the famous works: Birth of Venus and Primavera. There is more energy here and a café on the premises with good food and great views.
