  • Beautiful palace and art on the inside museum, I highly recommend a visit. I also recommend that anyone visiting should buy their tickets online in order to skip lines and make everything easier. I bought mine a month before visiting and was very pleased to know that the date I had selected was the first Sunday of the month, which basically means free entry to every museum. The good part was that they refunded my tickets everywhere and I could still skip the lines and enter the locations super fast. The gardens were pretty but nothing I would definitely recommend. We visited after a rainy day so that was also part of why I didn't like it so much. Still, it's a nice place to go to for the first time. Every staff member was professional and helpful. Expect a gigantic place full of rooms with beautiful art from top to bottom!
  • One of the best museums in Florence. Includes famous paintings, sculptures, furniture, gardens and tons of history. This is a palace with the impressive Palatine Gallery, Royal Apartments, Modern Art and Costume Gallery. You need hours to explore this gem. Come early before the crowds. Museum has a small cafe and impressive views of the Boboli Gardens.
