  • 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

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.

We arrived at 9:40 for 10 AM Skip the Line entry. Hardly any line for tickets or entry. Same story @12:30 when we left. If you want to see the Boboli Gardens be sure your purchase lists it. There is a Lot to see.

Very interesting collection representing a wide range of periods. The building itself is astonishing and a delight to move through. The biggest and best surprise for me was the ‘modern collection’ which was in fact nineteen and early twentieth century. Highly recommend and queued were very short.

Allow plenty of time to see the awesome wonders here. Almost seems endless. There is a cafe if you need a break to re-energize. Lots & lots of stairs but there is an elevator (if you can find it)

La guia auditiva es muy buena. Pero cuesta trabajo entender donde esta uno y que sigue.

It was ok but there should be a specially line for “skip the line people”. We could go around the normal line from the side but people didn’t understand why we “forced” our way in front of them and I’m sure some got upset. Otherwise it was great.

My wife and I visited there at 3:00pm time window on a Sunday afternoon, not many people. Got our paper tickets when we arrived, you will have to keep your paper tickets while inside the gallery and etc, the staff will check your tickets each time you enter a different section of the palace.
