Palazzo Pitti

By: Jenna Phelan and Audrey McBride

Palazzo Pitti is a renaissance palace in Florence. We are visiting this place on our very last day in Florence, and we are visiting it because it has a huge collection of paintings, china, and more. Also it is the previous home of the Medicis. The fee to enter Palazzo Pitti is $8, and it is not covered by the Firenze card. The rating on this site is 4.3 stars.
