Description

Enjoy this one single opportunity to discover the Uffizi Gallery, Italy's most important museum, and learn the secrets of the Vasari Corridor, the Medici family's secret passageway.

The Uffizi Gallery is undoubtedly Florence and Italy's most important and renowned museum. It houses the most incredible collection of artworks from the Middle Ages to Renaissance and beyond. A collection of masterpieces with no equals throghout the world, by artists like Giotto, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Botticelli, and many more.
With this tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy an approx. 2.5-hour guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the usual long lines as we will have a reserved priority entrance.
A not-to-be-missed visit for your Florence stay.

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.
With an in-depth explanation by a professional guide, uncover the Vasari Corridor history and secrets as you walk along its path from the outside, cutting the old town and experiencing the same perspective of the Medici family's enemies trying to follow and track the Grand Duke's movements inside the passageway.

PLEASE NOTE - VASARI CORRIDOR CURRENTLY UNDER MAJOR RECONSTRUCTION.
In 2007 Florencetown was the first tour operator ever to open this hidden gem regularly to the public, making it possible for everybody to discover it. From December 2016 the Vasari Corridor will be closed to undergo a major reconstruction to highlight even better its architectural characteristics and add some safety exits. This will probably take all 2017.
Florencetown will be ready to lead guests again on our Vasari Corridor exclusive visits as soon as it will reopen, and in the meantime we think it’s absolutely worth it to still discover its history and secrets on our fascinating external guided walking tour along the Corridor, included in the second part of this Uffizi Gallery & Vasari Corridor tour running at 3pm.
