Pitti Palace: a visit completely dedicated to this wonderful residence, its garden and museums.
Pitti Palace is not only a mangificent building, a duke’s and then Royal Residence, there is a monumental garden – Boboli- where images, sculptures, landscaped garden plots, sudden breathtaking views can engage the visitor for hours; wher one can feel immersed in Nature while being in the centre of a busy city only to be surprised, all of a sudden, by the amazing view of Florence from above.
And then there are many fantastic museums hosted inside the palace with collections of rare works of art.
Who is the visit to Pitti Palace recommended for?
Both groups and individuals. I recommend this tour to those wishing to discover, beyond the Middle Ages and Renaissance, what happened in Florence during the late 1500’s and the baroque period.
Length of the Pitti Palace tour:
3 or 6 hours, depending on what you choose to see.
