The Palatina Gallery and the Royal Apartments are accessible for disabled persons.
The Museum is located inside the Pitti Palace (Pitti Square n°1 - Florence).
The Gallery is called “Palatina” because it is located in the “Palazzo” of the ruling family, the imposing Pitti Palace, royal residence of the Medici, of the Lorraine and lastly of the Savoy dynasty. The collection of paintings, arranged in rooms sumptuously decorated with baroque stuccoes and frescoes, is a rare and precious example of a private princely gallery. The monumental royal apartments, joined to the gallery, show furnishings of the time when they were used by the Savoy, Kings of Italy.
In the early 19th century the Lorraine Grand Dukes decided to display the huge collection of paintings, acquired in the 17th and 18th centuries by the last Medici members, in the representative rooms on the first floor of the palace.
The collection was enlarged thanks to legacies and acquisitions at the time of the Grand Duke Cosimo III and his son Grand Prince Ferdinando, refined collector.
The museum was opened to visitors in 1828, during the reign of Leopoldo II.
The Gallery shows the taste of the Medici and of the Lorraine collections, displayed according to principles and decorations of a princely official gallery and including mainly works of the 16th and 17th centuries.
The Gallery houses the most significant collection in the world of works by Raphael, along with a rich group of Venetian works, such as many masterpieces by Titian.
It displays works by the main Italian and European artists of the 16th and 17th centuries, such as Andrea del Sarto, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo, Bronzino, Tintoretto, Veronese, Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, Murillo and Ribera.

This gallery has a very large number of paintings - too many to take in really. No massive "big hitters" like the Uffizzi, but some great ones nevertheless. The rooms are simply amazing. Go there and wonder at how rich the Medici family must have been!

The basic entry ticket gets you in to see the amazing collection of wealth in the form of art and sculpture. Well worth at least an hour to wander through each room and ponder what life must have been like to live here.

Visit this place at 815am (book online) and you can have hundreds of nice paintings to see in an unusually calm way for Florence. The gardens are nice as well.

Loved my visit although pictures were not in any sort of order but I understand why as it is suppose to represent a series of collections but why are the staff so rude or at best ignorant how can they be so miserable surrounded by such beauty!

History, art you name it. However you must have the energy to go up thr 220+ stairs to the tower that overlooks Florence. Amazing views, something to look for absolutely and worth the hike.

Please remember to purchase your ticket ahead of time otherwise you will have to wait a very long time in line! It is Italian history laid out in a museum. The entire museum is truly a work of art!

We prebooked our tickets online but the annoying thing is you still have to stand in a queue with your computer tickets so they can issue you with proper tickets most places I have been your computer ticket is all that is needed . Having said that the queues were horrendous for people that had just turned up...be warned !....this...

The art work here is wonderful. It isn't nearly as crowded as the other museums - at least in the mornings. Be sure to look at the ceilings in every room because they are also beautiful works of art. The cafe is pricey, but good.
