Description

Pitti Palace Tours (Palatine Gallery & Boboli Gardens)

Visiting Pitti Palace and the Palatine Gallery feels like traveling back in time through the grandiose palatial residence of former grand dukes and monarchs of Florence. Our Pitti Palace tours offer a great way to explore the beauty and history of the palace in peace.


Besides the palace and the gallery, the price covers access to the Modern Art Gallery, Decorative Arts Museum as well the Costume Gallery. The tour of Pitti Palace lasts one hour and a half during which our licensed guide will lead you through the palace and its gallery. Simply enjoy the highlights of museums collection and breathtaking views overlooking the Boboli Gardens. The Pitti palace guided tour will conclude with a walk through the lavish royal apartments.

Highlights

Pitti Palace museum and Boboli Gardens are one of the top places to visit from Florence. The popularity makes it harder to get inside, especially if you decided to visit last minute. Hours-lasting queues in front of the ticket office are a common occurrence.


Nobody wants to spend their precious holiday time waiting in lines filled with stressed and impatient travelers. By the time you actually get inside, you might be too tired or annoyed to enjoy it. Our Pitti Palace tours include Palazoo Pitti tickets and Boboli Gardens tickets with skip the line entrance to the museum.


Moreover, the palace holds too many stories; its hard to cover everything without a little guidance. You might skip important works of art by accident. It's not every day you are in Florence, so you better get the most out of the experience. Our licensed expert guides excel at bringing out the highlights as part of their lively and information-packed commentary.


We welcome both advanced and last minute bookings!

History Sneak Peek

The opulent Palazzo Pitti Florence (Pitti Palace) has been home to some of the most important monarchs in Italian history. The list is long stretching from the Medici grand dukes to the Austrian-Habsburg Lorraine family and the Savoy kings.


In the second half of the 15th century, a wealthy banker Luca Pitti commissioned the construction of this stately Renaissance palace to rival the lavishness of the Medici Palace. However, Pitti's fortune began to go down the hill. Upon bankruptcy, the family was forced to sell the palace which, ironically, ended up in Medici possession.


The Medicis transformed the place into the official residence of their dynasty. They not only enlarged the structure but also created a Renaissance garden on the grounds surrounding the palace.


When the Lorraine family took over control, they continued to improve the palace slowly bringing it to its present glory.


The Pitti Palace costume gallery resides in the left wing of the second floor, or the noble floor, of the palace and displays an impressive collection of old-master paintings. You can admire works of art by Botticelli, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio and Rubens sitting under impressive ceilings adorned with frescoes and stucco reliefs. The right wing of the second floor is home to the royal apartments, the private residence of the reigning families. Furnished with paintings, sculpture, tapestries, bronzes, and chandeliers, the apartments allow you to glimpse into daily life of monarchs.
