Vasari Corridor Tour
Take this unique opportunity to visit the Vasari Corridor, which was built in 1564 in merely 5 months at the request of Grand Duke Cosimo D’Medici. Giorgio Vasari was Cosimo D’Medici’s favourite architect, so he was asked to create the aerial passageway which allowed the Royal Family to move freely from their residence at Palazzo Pitti to the Government palace, Palazzo della Signoria. The Corridor passes over Ponte Vecchio Bridge and goes through galleries, city houses, and the Church of Santat Felicita. Almost a kilometre in length, it is the world’s longest single passageway of paintings and portraits. The Corridor was restored and reopened to the public in 1973, but it can only be visited by appointment. Make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the magnificent views of the Arno from the windows of the Corridor, and be sure to admire the incredible collection of over 1000 paintings, all dating from the 17th-18th centuries. After visiting the Vasari Corridor, you will continue to the Uffizi Gallery with our guide. At the conclusion of the tour, you will have the opportunity to independently head to That's Toscana Restaurant to take part in the popular Italian ritual called "Aperitivo" or happy hour.
