By booking our fascinating tour, you will have access to not only one, but four of Florence’s most prized monuments, all in one day: the Uffizi Gallery, the Corridor passing over the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and, finally, the Boboli Gardens…and, of course, the many treasures each one holds!
The Corridor has been closed to the general public due to safety concerns since 2016, but has now been re-opened for your viewing pleasure. You do not want to miss this exclusive tour that explores so many of the wonders Florence has to offer!
The famous Corridor was constructed for the Grand Duke of Tuscany by Giorgio Vasari in 1565 and was completed in just 5 months. It extends for over a kilometer (nearly 1 mile), all the way from Palazzo Vecchio to Pitti Palace across the Arno River. The passageway itself was created in order for the Grand Duke Cosimi I de’Medici to move between the palaces away from the eyes of the public. From breathtaking views of Florence outside the small windows, to the most famous collection of self-portraits in the world within- including works by Tiziano, Vronese, Tintoretto, Rubens, Durer, Chagall, as well as modern and contemporary artists- this tour does not disappoint!
Before entering the Vasari Corridor, a visit to the Uffizi Gallery is a must, offering a journey through paintings from the Middle Ages to the eighteenth century, with exhibitions mainly focused on the Florentine and Tuscan Renaissance. Some of the most prominent works of the Gallery are the Venus and the Spring by Sandro Botticelli, the Tondo Doni by Michelangelo, the Annunciation by Leonardo da Vinci, and the Venus of Urbino by Titian. Here, one can also find the Diptych of the Dukes of Urbino by Piero della Francesca and the Medusa and the Bacchus of Caravaggio.
