The Carriage Museum in Florence

A collection of carriages which belonged to the Lorena and Savoia families

Firenze
The Carriage Museum (Museo delle Carrozze) is housed in a part of Palazzo Pitti built in the eighteenth century. It is home to a series of eighteenth and nineteenth century carriages which mainly originate from the Lorena and Savoia courts. One of the most eye-catching examples is a carriage from the beginning of the nineteenth century which originally belonged to Ferdinando II, the king of Naples. This carriage was brought to Tuscany by the Savoia family. Equally fascinating are the three sumptuous gala carriages. These gold painted carved wooden carriages were made in Florence in 1818. The collection is currently open to the public in a temporary location while the museum is being re-organised.
