I happened upon Belvedere while on a walk exploring outside the main city circle. I ended up able to enter for free with my school ID, and was shocked and pleased by the amazing view. I did not go inside, but spent all of my...More
We entered the fort from Boboli gardens and enjoyed the spectacular views over Florence in the late afternoon. There is not much historical information around the site which was disappointing so a guide or some preparation might improve your visit.
There were some art exhibitions...More

Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through
