We booked via Viator (FlorencePass) for Florence Medici Tour: Palazzo Vecchio and Vasari Corridor Walking Tour - and we loved it!! Why is it special? Firstly, it was the passageway used by the Medici family to move from the Palazzo Vecchio to the Pitti Palace. Secondly, it is an area that is restricted to the public and only accessible to...

Well it is a bridge and not much more but the history is interesting if that floats your boat. Read up on it when you get home but make sure you see it. At least 5 mins to take it all in!

An incredible collection of artist self-portraits in a secret passageway between the Uffizi Gallery and the Boboli Gardens.

We used Florencetown tours to access this corridor (along with a skip the line tour of the Uffizi Gallery). It was expensive but worth every penny. The corridor was worth a trip not just for the self portraits which line the walls and the views of the city and river from the round windows but also for the feeling of... More

Limited access in groups of 10 along the Corridor. Very interesting history with fantastic portraits and some modern ones. Look out of the windows that were installed for a visit by Hitler to look down the river.

So interesting! The Medici had it built in just 5 months when they moved from the government center to the Pitti Palace

My wife and I booked a tour of the Varsari Corridor with a tour guide. There are only a limited number of groups that are allowed to tour daily. We were in a group of ten. The Corridor stretches from the Uffizi Gallery where you gain entrance near the Botticelli room and ends at the Boboli Gardens near the Pitti... More

Weeks before our intended visit to Florence, we wrote the museum authorities requesting access to the Corridor, reputed to possess the world's most magnificent collection of self-portraits by artists, including Renaissance ones. However we were regrettably informed by return mail that the Corridor is closed, and therefore not available for viewing by the public, until further notice. So there you... More

We wanted to visit the Vasari Corridor ever since we were students many years ago. We got a chance on this trip of a lifetime. We walked secretly from the Uffici to the Pitti Palace with our guide photographing many of the chronologically displayed paintings along the way. In the same way that the Medici's did so many years ago.... More
