Pitti Palace

Starting from 16th May, Pitti Palace and Boboli Garden change their ticketing system in order to allow a better fruition and understanding. The four museums of Pitti Palace (the Palatine Gallery, the Modern Art Gallery, the Fashion and Costume Museum and the Treasury of the Grand Dukes) will make part of a single circuit, separated from the Boboli Garden’s ticket, which instead keeps on including the Porcelain Museum and the Bardini Garden, and goes on depending on seasonal opening hours determined in accordance with the solar cycle.

In compliance with the policy according to which the ticket rates are increased on the occasion of temporary exhibitions, during “Maria Lassnig: Woman Power” (March 25th – June 25th 2017) the ticket will be: € 13.00 for the regular ticket; €6.50 for the reduced ticket.

The ticket for Boboli Garden (which includes the Porcelain Museum and the Bardini Garden) will remain unchanged as well: €7.00 , for the regular ticket; €3.50 for the reduced one.

 “Until now, those who desired to get to know Palazzo Pitti and its collections had to buy two separate tickets, and had to face with the incongruity of different opening hours determined for two different museum circuits: now one may buy a single ticket only to visit Pitti Palace as a whole – remarks Eike Schmidt, Director of the Uffizi Galleries – The new system is more logical and easier, and allows a better understanding of the Pitti Palace, its history and the precious collections it contains.

Limitations in visiting times are therefore removed, along with other various complications.

Two tickets, two widened options: the easiest way of offering the visitor the possibility of a more interesting exploration as well as a re-establishment of the historical unity of the palace.”
