“Since we purchased our tickets online, we did not have to wait on the long line at the Pitti Palace entry booth. This was great, because there was so much to see at all of the galleries so we had no time to waste! Wonderful experience.”

“Huge and beautiful! I found the audio-guide extremely helpful and informative. Buy separate tickets for the Boboli Gardens and be prepared to climb lots of stairs.”

The Pitti Palace - Palazzo Pitti is a vast, visually striking building located a short way to the south of the Arno, Florence's river - the chances are you'll arrive at the Pitti having crossed the river via the Ponte Vecchio, the 'old bridge'. The Palace is home to various galleries, most notably the Gallery of Modern Art and the Palatine Gallery, as well as the smaller Silver Museum (Tesoro dei Granduchi) and the Costume Gallery (Galleria del Costume). If you want to visit the Boboli Gardens that lie behind and above the Pitti Palace, then you'll need this other ticket.

The Pitti Palace 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.

Opening times:

The galleries are open all year round from 08.15 AM until 06.50 PM (closed on Mondays). There is a wardrobe room where bags of no larger than 40*40*50 cm may be left. If there's a special exhibition running at the time of your visit then your ticket price will include entrance to the exhibition.

The buttons below will give greater detail on the tickets available throughout the year, and do use our calendar above to check availability!
