“Must see gardens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Although the palace is beautiful in itself, what makes it really worth visiting are the gardens. Be sure to fully explore the grounds, including the grotto. The top of the gardens offers amazing views of the Duomo & the city of Florence below!

“Gardens are the best part”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012 via mobile

The only reason I'd ever return here would be for the gardens, more specifically the beautiful view of Florence. Inside the palace, the "apartments" we're really just a series of ornately decorated rooms that all looked exactly the same. The costume gallery was very poorly organized and just not worth the four flights of stairs you have to climb to get there. The only thing I actually enjoyed here was the gardens. Not worth 18 Euro though.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012

If you purchase a combined ticket to everything it could take a day or more to see it all. If you want an option that includes, ancient architecture, gardens and art with less crowds than some other options this is a great choice and easily accessible.

“Purchase the Complete Ticket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012

I am glad I purchased the ticket which included all of the areas of the palace. However, it was somewhat confusing figuring out where each area began. The palace itself is gorgeous and really enjoyed seeing the jewels and antiquities. Be prepared for a lot of steps.
