Overview

While the Uffizi and Accademia Gallery are first to draw Florence’s main art-loving crowds, the Pitti Palace’s Palatine Gallery houses another must-see collection. Avoid the main entrance lines with this skip-the-line ticket, and admire the largely 17th-century artworks by greats including Titian, Raphael, Botticelli and others, at leisure. Your ticket also includes entry to the Pitti’s Gallery of Modern Art, a showcase of later Italian works.
  • Skip-the-line ticket to the Palatine Gallery and Modern Art Gallery at Florence’s Pitti Palace (Palazzo Pitti)
  • Bypass the main lines to visit both galleries, housed in the former Medici palace
  • See the 17th-century European masterpieces at the Palatine Gallery
  • Admire works by Titian, Caravaggio and more, including the 'Madonna and Child' by Raphael
  • View the 18th-, 19th and 20th-century Italian art at the Gallery of Modern Art
  • Choose from multiple admission times and explore the art at leisure
Travel independently to the Pitti Palace in central Florence. Admire the imposing exterior of the vast palace, home to Florence’s ruling Medici family from 1549, and show your skip-the-line ticket to bypass the main entrance lines.

Make your way inside to the Palatine Gallery, housed in the west wing of the palace. Then, explore the magnificent artworks in your own time. The gallery houses more than 500 examples of largely 17th-century European art, all displayed in the sumptuous private rooms of the former ducal apartments.

See works by Titian, Rubens, Van Dyck, Caravaggio, and Velazquez, perhaps specifically seeking out masterpieces like the 1514 Madonna and Child by Raphael and portraits by Botticelli. Other works by Bronzino, Fra Bartolomeo, Piero del Pollaiolo, and Filippo Lippi are also on view.

Afterward, walk around the Gallery of Modern Art on the Pitti’s second floor. Wander through the rooms, occupied by Italy’s royals until 1920, to see collections by Italian artists from the late 18th and early 20th centuries. Perhaps pay most attention to the paintings by the Macchiaioli movement, considered precursors of the impressionist school.

Leave the Palatine or Gallery of Modern Art whenever you wish, bringing your experience to an end.

We had the misfortune of booking the day the Pitti Palace closed due to the terrible weather. Although we were offered the chance to use them another day we had moved on to Venice.

as we entered the apartment wing of the tour, there was a museum employee, Stefano, at the desk checking tickets. He had a clip
board offering special tour of la cucina. TAKE IT! we got to see the king's apartment and kitchen, an experience not to be
missed if available. Stefano was amazing with his knowledge and enthusiasm.

I HAD MY PAPER SHOWING THE SKIP THE LINE FOR THIS TOUR BUT I SHOULD HAVE ASKED QUESTIONS INSTEAD OF WAITING IN LINE ALONG WITH THE OTHERS FOR MY TICKET SO THAT WAS MY FAULT. HOWEVER THE LINE MOVED QUICKLY AND WASN'T THAT LONG ON THAT DAY I WENT.. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND YOU HAVE THIS TOUR WITH A GUIDE BECAUSE IT IS VERY OVERWHELMING.
I THINK IT WOULD HAVE MADE THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE HISTORY OF THE PITTI PALANCE BETTER

The line was not very long and the price from Viator is more than double. But what is inside is worth seeing, a lot of extraordinary rooms and lovely paintings. We took 3 hours to see the Palace and the Boboli Garden and we were in a rush a little

The Palatine Gallery defies description. I would rank it Number One to see in Florence, ahead even of the Uffizi.The variety of art--paintings, sculptor, decorations, mosaics--is breathtaking. Must see!

What you need to know that Viator failed to explain: I arranged the tour online and got a printout confirmation with a bar code. BUT: I had learned from an earlier tour of the Accademia that you must present the computer printout at the on-site ticket office to get the actual ticket to enter the museum. Please, Viator! Let your customers know that the computer printout will not get you admitted at the door and you need to take it to the local ticket office to get the actual admission ticket. The printout does allow you to skip the line at the ticket office.

Self guided tour, but get the skip the line tix and go early to beat the crowds. So much to see. Fried my brain. Great gift shop, good prices on prints. "Modem Art" portion of ticket refers to anything after 1700, apparently, but shows evolution of Italian art into early 20th century. Beautiful.

There is so much art to see, and the rooms of the palace are endless. I would add another 10 and buy the ticket for the Boboli Gardens and other museums with this ticket. We could get it very easily from the ticket office when we redeemed the voucher for Pitti Palace.
