The Royal Apartments

This is your chance to enter the 14 ceremonial rooms that comprise the Imperial and  Royal Apartments on the first floor of the palace. At different points in time, these rooms have been occupied by stalwarts from history, whose sumptuous tastes in furnishings and grand decorations offer a glimpse into their lives of splendor and responsibility.

Palatine Gallery

The Palatine Gallery holds a vast collection of frescoes, stuccoes, furnishings, and silks collected by the Medicis. Located on the first floor, along with the Royal Apartments, this lavish array of masterpieces includes the largest concentration of Raphael’s paintings in the world, as well as priceless works by Tintoretto, Titian, Caravaggio, and Rubens. You must check out Pietro da Cortona’s sensational frescoes for the Grand Duke of Tuscany Ferdinando II de’ Medici, which were realized between 1640 and 1647.

Treasury Of The Grand Dukes

Situated on the ground floor of the palace, the rooms that comprise the Treasury of the Grand Dukes were once the Medici family’s summer apartments. The walls of these rooms were frescoed when Ferdinando II de’Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, was wedded to Vittoria della Rovere in 1637. Home to the precious ‘Medici’s Treasure’, and the collection of silverware from the ‘Treasure of Salzburg’, these rooms were referred to as the Silver Museum. Do remember to visit the collection of jewelry housed within this museum as well.

Porcelain Museum

This is a collection of porcelain tableware that reflects the different royal families of Tuscany they belonged to. It also contains gifts from Napoleon to Elisa Baciocchi, his sister who was the Grand Duchess of Tuscany from 1809 to 1814, as well as some pieces that were owned by Gian Gastone, who was the last Medici Grand Duke.

Gallery Of Modern Art

These rooms on the second floor of the palace were once inhabited by the Habsburg-Lorraine family, and now house a prolific collection of paintings and sculptures from as far back as the end of the 18th century into the first decades of the 20th century. This growing collection is constantly being enriched through purchases and donations.
