Try to get a private tour...it is totally worth it! See if your concierge can arrange it, or your alma mater. It runs from the Pitti Palace/Boboli gardens, across the Pnte Vecchio all secretly, one story or more above the city-it is wide and tall enough to accommodate two horses and riders, and is lined with stunning art.

A Guided tour of the Vasari corridor is a must when visiting Florence. Our tour guide, Mario, gave us a fantastic tour of the amazing building and the art that it possessed and more interestingly got us to participate and understand the art from the aspect of an art history student. The tour should easily take 3 hours and expect... More

It's a great story and a telling example of Medici power -- build me a 1/2 mile corridor in the air so that I don't have to walk with the peasants (yes there were other reasons, but you get the basic idea). It's from the Palazzo Signoria to the Uffizi, across the Arno via the Ponte Vecchio and then on... More

The idea of building a one kilometer long corridor to make an easy passage from one palace to another (by the Medicis off course) is fascinating in it self. And having read Dan Browns Inferno, where the corridor also has an important part to play, and having payed 65 euro each for the tour, we had quite high expections up... More

My mother and I took this tour and it was great. Giorgio Vasari was commissioned by Cosimo l de Medici in the late 1500s to build a protective passageway for the family to use in traveling from their home in the Pitti Palace on the far side of the Arno River over the Ponte Vecchio to their work place in...

I personally like the books of Dan Brown and if you read Inferno, a visit to the Vasari Corridor is a must. But also if you did not read these books, the Corridor is a must see. You can only visit with a guided tour. Its history is famous. Duke Cosimo I de Medici instructed Vasari to design the passageway... More

I took this Uffizi and VAsari Corridor tour wiht FlorenceTown tours. While I had seen the Uffizi several times before the guide offered a slightly different tour and kept it interesting. The most interesting part though was the Vasari Corridor - through which few are allowed. Over 2000 self portraits of the calibre of VAsari himself, Rubens, Van Dyck and... More

This corridor is known as the "Vasari Corridor", or the "Self-Portrait" Passage: used by the Medicis as a private passageway from their primary residence at the Palazzo Vecchio to their private chapel at Sta. Felicita. Self-portraits to look out for: Jacques-Louis David and Parmigianino!

I've been to the Uffizi before but this time we did the Vasari Corridor as well. It is simply stunning. There is a gallery of self portraits all the way along. An amazing experience.

Booked a tour with Tickitaly and when the requested time was booked, they offered me another time. While they asked the group to meet at the front of the Pitti Palace at least 10 minutes beforehand, no one was there until right at tour time, leaving me a little nervous for a few minutes that I wasnt in the right...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
