New Single Ticket for the Pitti Palace & Boboli
The Palazzo Pitti complex and Boboli Gardens (Giardino di Boboli) have always been accessible via the means of separate tickets, but from May 3, it will be possible for visitors to buy single admission for Palazzo Pitti (which houses multiple galleries and museums) and the Boboli Gardens. In the summer season, the ticket will be available for €22 (€4 less when compared to two individual tickets), and in the winter season for €14 (a €2 savings).
The Palazzo Pitti houses the Palatine Gallery (Renaissance and Baroque paintings and frescoes), the Fashion and Costume Gallery, the Modern Art Gallery (mainly 19th and 20th century Italian paintings), the Treasury of the Grand Dukes (formerly the Silver Museum), the Museum of Russian Icons and the Palatine Chapel. The Boboli Gardens have been open to the public since 1766. Once the Medici family’s backyard, it is now visited by residents and tourists looking for an escape from the busy urban life. It’s a perfect location to relax under the shade of foliage after walking through a historic nature setting, filled with statuary and ponds.
The new ticket can be added to various multiple tickets made available so far by state-run museums. These include the 5-day Passepartout (€38 in the summer season), facilitating visits on five consecutive days to the Uffizi Gallery, the Pitti Palace complex, the Boboli Gardens and the Opificio delle Pietre Dure.
