From Piazza Pitti the incline up to the entrance is very steep but completely accessible; if you have a manual wheelchair, you’ll need someone to help you. There are no steps to enter the inner courtyard of the building, where the lifts are located; there are some steps on the way to the ticket office.
The Palace is divided into four museums: the Treasury of the Grand Dukes on the ground floor, the Palatine Gallery and the Imperial and Royal Apartments on the first floor, the Gallery of Modern Art and the Museum of Costume and Fashion on the second floor.
Treasury of the Grand Dukes
It's located in the left wing of the Ammannati courtyard and is structured on two floors: the ground floor is fully accessible, while the rooms on the first floor are currently not accessible for visitors with reduced mobility or in a wheelchair.
Palatine Gallery and Imperial and Royal Apartments
Both on the 1st floor and accessible by lifts (width 90 cm.)
Gallery of Modern Art
The Gallery can be reached by lifts from the ground floor. There is a multi-sensory path, completed by audio guides, which makes a selection of masterpieces accessible to blind and visually impaired visitors.
Museum of Costume and Fashion
It is accessible with an elevator (90 cm) and a stair lift for standard wheelchairs (there is a large red button to alert the staff). A guided tour for people with visual impairments, with tactile experience on various types of fabrics, is available upon reservation.
For visitors with motor disabilities the garden is only accessible with help, because almost all the paths are gravel and there are many inclines and slopes. The Porcelain Museum, inside the garden, is not accessible.
