Calling all art lovers! With limited time in Florence, skip the line for a guided walking tour through the Uffizi Gallery before gaining exclusive access to a collection of portraits and paintings housed in the Vasari Corridor. Book your tours ahead of time to take advantage of jumping the queue.
By-pass the Uffizi Gallery's long lines as your English-speaking guide delivers informative commentary on your 1.5-hour tour through the gallery's main rooms.
From the inside of the Uffizi Gallery, doors leading to the Vasari Corridor will be opened exclusively for your tour group (maximum 25 people). A private walk along the Vasari Corridor will take you back to the times of the Medici, when Cosimo and his wife, Eleonora, walked along their private corridor, from one side of Florence to the other, observing the crowd below.
Built above the Ponte Vecchio, the passageway dates back to 1564 and stretches almost a mile between Palazzo Pitti, over the Arno to Palazzo della Signoria. It was Cosimo I who first summoned the architect Giorgio Vasari to build such a path for the royal family.
Hidden between city houses and even passing through a church, the Vasari Corridor has evolved as one of the most astounding architectural masterpieces of the Renaissance. The corridor is rarely open to the public, so take advantage of this unique opportunity to view Florence and its artistic pleasures on this exclusive walking tour.
