Our insider tips

How much time to spend?

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.

Admission: Buy a package ticket

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.

Good insights to some of the architect and art work

Beautiful artwork and sculptures. Guide was a bit quick to criticize ability to stay on our feet. Maybe she did not realize we had been walking 8 miles per day on cobblestone roads and had traveled far. Guide did have interesting facts regarding some of the artwork.
