We took the Uffizi Gallery/Vasari Corridor tour with Florencetown. Since one could spend days at the Uffizi, this tour wisely selects the most famous and popular artworks to focus on to give a taste of the museum. To really explore Uffizi, you do need to come back and spend more time. I felt a bit naughty and very VIP, when... More

This corridor was built so Cosimo Medici does not have to walk from the Uffizi to the Pitti Palance among the common people. How Chique! You can do the same walk with this tour. There is a pretty interesting collection of self portraits of various artists inside the corridor itself. It gives you a sense of just how many artists... More

Such a unique experience. It feels magical being in the corridor surrounded by all the art. If you are looking for something a bit different where you get the feel of Florence, then this is well worth it.

To be honest I was not impressed with the collection of Self-Portraits on display but the Corridoio Vasariano is so much surrounded by mystery that you should not miss it. It is expensive but on the whole worth a visit, even for just to say I was there. However the views through the small round windows are marvelous

You would never know it was there. The corridor is filled with artwork collected by the Medici family. The paintings are quite impressive.

I try to get in a peek at least once a year. If you've been through the Uffizi...You have seen great masterpieces...The Corredor Vasariano takes it one step further... It is a must see..and most often closed..However, you will not be disappointed...

This evening we had the privilege to experience this special tour with our terrific guide Sara for Florencetown tours and it was one of the best things we have done in Florence. The Vasari Corridor was built as a private passageway for the Medici family to move between the old palace (Palazzo Vecchio) and the new one (Pitti Palace) without... More

This is a tour well worth taking whilst in Florence. The artwork on display is good with a few amazing works but the real treat is the corridor itself and the history it has.

The Vasari Corridor (which is used in the Dan Brown movie "Inferno") is a passageway from Palazzo Vecchio, through the the Uffizi Art Gallery (Uffizi means "office" in Italian) acroos the Ponte Vecchio, through a church, and finally to the Pitti Palace (home of the Medici), designed by Cosimo I di Medici's favorite architect, Giorgio Vasari. It has only recently... More

Only a few people get to visit this and we were lucky enough to do so via a tour booked through Florencetown. We found it fascinating. Who knew this was built to impress foreign visitors for a wedding? Really worth the advance planning and cost.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
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.
