Pitti Palace Reviews

I had a great time in that palace. Already by its architecture which is super and very original. Then we go inside and visit.

Staff is great. We got breakfast included and the restaurant is on the 6th floor roof with wonderful views and tremendous food. The rooms are small but the price is right for what you get. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and it was great also. There are so many places to eat that are within a short 5 minute walk including a Michelin 1 star. Amazing.
