Cheap hotels near Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy

Located in Oltrarno and a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio, the Pitti Palace ("Palazzo Pitti") is a mostly Renaissance palace on the south side of the Arno River that today encompasses several of Florence's major cultural museums.

The palace dates from the mid-1400s when it was owned by a wealthy banker, Luca Pitti. It was later bought by the Medici family and was used as a base for Napoleon in the 18th century. Over the years, owners amassed collections of art and today the Pitti is the city's largest museum complex.

You can visit the palace daily to take in art by Peter Paul Rubens, Raphael and Titian (to name a few!) in the Palatine Gallery, as well as to check out where the Medici’s slept in the Royal Apartments. The palace also comprises a silver museum, porcelain museum, modern art museum and costume gallery, as well as a museum devoted to carriages.
