Overview

Highlights

  • Get straight in to see this exquisite royal palace. This means you can skip the line, which - in high season - can be over an hour-long in an open piazza under the baking Tuscan sun
  • Visit the sumptuous royal apartments, once home to the Grand Dukes of Tuscany, Holy Roman Emperor Francis I, Napoleon, and King Victor Emmanuel II (though not all at the same time!). The apartments also contain a fascinating set of portraits of members of the Medici family
  • This skip-the-line ticket includes access to the sumptuous Palatine Gallery, with its outstanding collection of works - including masterpieces by Raphael, Titian and Rubens

Description

As Florence’s only royal palace, Palazzo Pitti is a must-see on the city’s tourist trail. It's also the largest museum complex in The City of Lilies; at some 32,000 m2 this is a residence fit for absolute rulers - from grand dukes to kings and emperors. The Palatine Gallery has works by Raphael, Titian, Rubens, and more. Skip the line and get into the Renaissance!

Palazzo Pitti has come a long way since its original incarnation as the residence of ambitious banker Luca Pitti. Lavish touches adorn stunning architecture at this massive Renaissance palace on the banks of the Arno. Start your visit off like a Tuscan Duke by sidestepping the line-ups and waltzing right in.

Once inside the palace’s beautiful royal apartments and you'll see an eclectic mix of sumptuous memorabilia including furniture, paintings, and fine sculpture. You'll also get an incredible sense of intimacy – decorated with glorious gilding and stucco, these are the rooms where the residents actually lived. And with beautiful period furnishings such as four-poster beds (smaller than you might imagine), you really do get the feeling that you're among royalty.

The Palatine Gallery melds four centuries of high-style Tuscan living with Renaissance and Baroque paintings. It includes beautiful artworks by Raphael, Titian, Rubens, Pietro da Cortona - and many more. In another flair of the personal, the Palatine Gallery isn't organized chronologically, nor by school of painting. Instead, the arrangement reflects the tastes of the former residents.

A visit to the Palazzo Pitti and Palatine Gallery will give you a sense of the everyday opulence of the aristocratic families who called the shots during the Renaissance. To get the most out of your visit, we suggest picking up a fur-trimmed velvet robe to wear as you swan through the halls.

Insider tip

Take a nice stroll around Palazzo Pitti: On the various little streets there, you can definitely enjoy historical enoteche (wine bars) and have a glass of one of the famous Tuscan reds.
