16/43.- Florence, Palazzo Pitti

The Palazzo Pitti was constructed in 1450. Luca Pitti, the local rival of the Medici family, ordered its construction. A century later, in 1549, the palace was purchased by the Medicis.

Inside this more than 200 meters wide facade visitors can experience how the late Medici family members lived.

Behind the 'Palazzo Pitti' there is the 'Giardino di Boboli', with the 'Fontana del Baco'. This fountain's sculpture represents Boboli (the Cosme I de Medici Court’s dwarf) mounted on a turtle.
