The EXCLUSIVE opportunity to visit the VASARI CORRIDOR, along the Medici Walk, together with an English speaking guide.

The Pontevecchio, the landmark of Florence, houses the best kept secret of Florence. It serves as a passageway dating back to 1564, when the Grand Duke of Florence, Cosimo I de' Medici ordered his favorite architect, Giorgio Vasari, to built a path that would allow him and the Royal family to move freely from their residence (Palazzo Pitti) to the government palace (Palazzo della Signoria, other side of the river Arno).

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.

Before this very exclusive opening of the unique Vasari Corridor, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy an approx. 1 1/2 hour guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the usual long lines as we will have a reserved priority entrance. You will thus be able to view the main masterpieces by artists like Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, etc.
When in Florence... do like the Medici used to do!
