Palazzo Pitti

Palazzo Pitti was built for Renaissance banker Luca Pitti. A loyal consigliere to Cosimo de Medici, Pitti wanted a mansion built to rival those of the mighty Medici. He did pretty well: about 100 years after its construction the Medici acquired it and moved in. With a grand courtyard, Royal Apartments, the Palatine Gallery and a high Baroque interior design, this is a worthy Renaissance palace.

I suggest planning ahead for this experience. Bring your own detailed map since none is provided. We went to sit and sketch and paint, but found no comfortable shady areas in the grass. Much of the formally designed wide gravel path garden (interspersed with traditional and modern sculptures) is on a hill. Traveled walkways and stairs are lined by wide hedges. there are few shady areas or benches along the way to rest. Please bring your own water. The toilets and water locations are very spread out. Once you make it to the top there is a very pretty formal rose garden (again unprotected from sun) with amazing views of the hilly Tuscan landscape south of Florence. We ran out of time to explore the Bardini Garden and wish we had done so.

The gardens were really nice, be prepared for a really long walk, not recommended for rainy days or the day right after.

You don't just skip 1 line at ticket office, you skip the line to ever the palace as well. Great value for the money spent. Highly recommend.

This was a truly memorable afternoon of viewing an amazing collection of art & sculpture all set in exquisitly decorated palatial rooms with beautiful views of the Boboli Gardens and central Florence . An added bonus was the escape from the afternoon crowds just across the river .
