Question about Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Garden Ticket

Hello -

I was planning on visiting these 2 sites in Florence on Sunday June 5th. Through my research, buying tickets far in advance wasn't necessary but to my surprise when I went to buy tickets today as we are 2 weeks out from leaving... those dates were not available to purchase.

Both locations are open that day and I cannot find anything about them being closed due to a special event or similar. If anyone is familiar with purchasing tickets in advance and could tell me if this means it is sold out online and I could still get in by showing up in person or if there is a different way to get tickets, I would appreciate it!

mssr1024, it's always best to start your own thread when your question differs from the OP's. That said, for Florence's State Museums, this is the official ticketing resource:

For the Duomo complex:

If there are other attractions you wish to see which are not included in these two groups and which involve ticketing, then you'll need to list them. In some cases, you may not need to order those in advance. Even some of the less visited State Museums may not require advance, timed-entry tickets unless mandated.

I'm having a similar issue trying to book tickets for Monday, June 27th. The site says:
Closing Days

First and last Monday of each month, except for the period between June and October (see the updated schedule).

Of course, the link to updated schedule doesn't work, but to me, the above means that from June-October, the first and last Mondays are NOT closed. I cannot find any site that will say with a recent date on it what is actually happening. We are only going to be able to spend one day in Florence so trying to decide whether to move our date so we can see the Gardens at least. Help!

To the person asking about Monday June 27, it looks from the ticketing site that the gardens are closed. I would call to be certain.
