Italy. Florence. Palazzo Pitti

Capi4ca • 4 minutes read • May 26th, 2016
After a sightseeing tour, we had some free time so we decided to go to the other side of the Arno River, toward the 

Palazzo Pitti

.

The Medici family had two residences: the Palazzo Vecchio at 

Piazza della Signoria

, that we saw recently, and the Palazzo Pitti on the other side of the Arno River.
The bridge with a covered gallery, called Ponte Vecchio, was built at the narrowest point of the river.

We are going to cross the bridge (Ponte Vecchio). I will show you the bridge later when we will have crossed it.

Here are views of 

Florence

from the Ponte Vecchio.

We came to the square in front of the Palazzo Pitti. The square is on a slope.

We bought tickets to go inside the Palace. The Palace houses the Palatine Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Silver Museum, the Porcelain Museum, the Museum of carriages and the Costume Gallery.
Below we are heading toward the courtyard.

We visited the museums. I'll show you a few pictures as an overview. We weren't allowed to take pictures of everything.

The Boboli Gardens are adjacent to the back of the Palace, our next destination.

If you go a little further behind the palace, you can see Florence on the other bank.

You can see the Duomo (La Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore) from here.
