I've been for years looking at from below, from the Ponte Vecchio. It goes from the Palazzo Vecchio to the Uficci Galleries which means offices, to the Plazzo Pitti, where the Medici lived. I could only view it from land and from the Ponte Vecchio. I read that they used to have thousands of pieces of art in there but... More

2012 This is a tour you can book through viator. It is very unique and personable. It is a portrait gallery of famous families from Italy. It also has some interesting history.

This was an interesting tour but I would have liked the art aspect to have matched that of the history element. We were rushed through the corridor and had little time to look at the paintings.

We were given two tickets as a present. We were in a group of 10 persons who had a two hr guided tour of the Uffizi, morning coffee and a pastry on the roof top followed by a walk through the Vasari corridor linking the Uffizi with the Pitti Palace and Boboli gardens. This was in fact the highlight of... More

Not easy to book on your own, our group of 24 booked with John Penate of Vini Cultural Tours. The ticket includes entrance also into the Galleria Uffizi. So cool to walk over the Ponte Vecchio & Arno River to the Palazzo Piti where kings strolled many centuries ago.

Last time I checked it was $500 euros to tour this corridor between the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace. I went in 2002 with a group, and it was totally worth it. The corridor goes over the Ponte Vecchio and through Santa Felicita and features self-portraits. If you are rich or can get a group together then I would recommend... More

The corridor was filled with many works of art collected by the Medicee's and enjoyed by them as they walked between "work" & "home". Looking over the people walking on the Ponte Vecchio below you could feel the benefit of making the crossing without have to deal with a multitude of people and vendors. The only way to travel.
