Palatine Gallery

Start in the left wing of the first floor of the palace, home to the Galleria Palatina (www.polomuseale.firenze.it; Tue–Sun 8.15am–6.50pm). This gallery contains some outstanding works of art hung in beautiful rooms. The ticket office is in the right wing, and the entrance to the gallery is off the internal courtyard.

The gallery begins with a series of antechambers containing some notable paintings. Filippo Lippi’s beautiful tondo of the Madonna and Child and Rubens’ Three Graces hang in the Sala di Prometeo (room 14) and the Sala dei Putti respectively. The Sala di Bagno (Bathroom), decorated with stucco nymphs and four marble Nereides, was designed for the French Emperor Napoleon, after he had conquered northern Italy.
