ADVANCE TICKET RESERVATION FOR THE PITTI PALACE ART GALLERIES, FLORENCE, ITALY

Recent comment:

Vatican and St Peters private tour, Monday 17th March 2014

I would like to give you feedback on the above which our party of 8 enjoyed immensely.

Everything was perfect, meeting, entry (lovely to pass those queues), technology, venue (of course), etc.

But the best thing about the whole morning was your guide Deborah. She is charming, friendly, erudite, and a real credit to you. We listened to her intently throughout, she held our attention, surprised us, interacted with us, answered all our questions, and made the morning very special. We would have missed so much without her. We all think we would like to meet her again and when we come back to Rome we would hope to do so.

Many thanks

Information and ticket booking for the Palatine Gallery and the Modern Art Gallery, Pitti Palace, Florence, Italy

On this page you can order a ticket (see further down the page) that allows entrance to the Palatine Gallery and the Modern Art Gallery. We also sell another ticket that gives entrance to the 'other' galleries of the Pitti, as well as the Boboli gardens.

The Pitti Palace (Palazzo Pitti), located just south of the river Arno (and the Pontevecchio) in Florence, is today the largest museum complex in the city, home to a wide range of distinct galleries and exhibitions. The building's core dates from the 1450's, and the largely Renaissance building was originally the town home of Luca Pitti, a clearly enormously wealthy banker. Roughly 100 years later it was purchased by, and became home to the Medici rulers, and their even greater wealth saw an accumulation of fine art and treasures; the building and contents were gifted to the Italian people in 1919.

The two principle galleries today are the Palatine and the Gallery of Modern Art, and this combined ticket gives you access to both collections. The Palatine gallery is, in essence, a private Medici (and their successors') collection, and is today displayed as such - hung according to taste, not chronology, with approximately 500 largely Renaissance paintings by such masters as Raphael, Titian, Correggio and Rubens.

The Modern Art Gallery is perhaps not ideally named - no amorphous sculptures, no 'installations', no shock-of-the-new here. This is because, in Italian, 'modern art' dates from prior to the 2nd World War - what comes after tends to be called 'contemporary'. What there is is a good collection of pieces dating from 1700 to early 1900; of particular note are works by members of the Macchiaioli movement, a school of pioneering 19th-century Tuscan painters, prime movers in the impressionist movement.

The galleries are open all year round from 08.15AM until 06.50PM (closed on Mondays). As with many venues in Italy, there are often special exhibitions running, and the ticket price will reflect this.

Simply select the ideal date for your visit using the calendar below. Next, click the green button and our system will automatically present you with the relevant ticket options and pricing for that date. Tickets are fully inclusive and are all 'skip the line' tickets.
