Palazzo Pitti and Palatina Gallery

Palazzo Pitti and Palatina Gallery

We will continue our tour visiting the Palatina Gallery in Pitti Palace, the great renaissance palace that hosted the three reigning dynasties of Florence, the Medici, Lorraine and Savoy families, which represents the manifestation of their power and wealth. Despite the sober and austere external appearance, the palace inside is full of treasures to discover: sumptuous frescoed halls, precious furnishings and gilded stuccos, but above all, a huge collection of paintings from the XVth to the XVth century made by very important painters such as Raphael, Caravaggio and Titian. A tour through art, where you can relive the attractive court life of that time and learn about an important part of Florence history.
Boboli Gardens

Boboli Gardens

Many people don’t know that behind Palazzo Pitti there is a huge Renaissance garden, strongly desired by the Medici to relax, go hunting and enjoy contact with nature. It is a perfect example of an Italian-style garden, characterized by a geometric subdivision of spaces through hedges, trees and bushes that inspired later landscape architecture. It is enriched with caves, fountains and statues from different times that hide funny stories and curious anecdotes, and which make the garden a very suggestive and fascinating place.
