Entrance ticket to visit Pitti Palace and its masterpieces.
Palazzo Pitti is definitely one of the main attractions and the most visited point in central Florence. Florence is home to dozens of art and history amusements, and this time we are getting into one of the best representatives of Florence art and royal lifestyle. Pitti Palace houses several important museums with fascinating decoration that mostly was executed during the 17th century.
This palace is one of Florence's largest architectural monuments and probably even in a larger area. The original palace was built back in 1457 for the Pitti family. It was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi and built by Luca Fancelli who was his pupil. The original construction was the middle cube of the present building. In 1549, the property became the primary residence of the grand ducal family.
The palace was then enlarged; from 1560, Bartolomeo Ammannati also designed and added the grandiose courtyard and two lateral wings. The original building, formed by two floors and the ground floors, it was purchased in 1550 by Eleonora da Toledo, the wife of the Grand Duke Cosimo I de' Medici, thus becoming the official residence of the family.
Pitti Palace is one of the most important monuments in Florence and contains museums such as: on the first floor is the Palatine Gallery, containing a broad collection 16th and 17th century paintings (including works by Raphael), and the Royal Apartments, containing furnishings from a remodeling done in the 19th century.
