The Vasari Passage (a.k.a. Corridor) is a passageway that connects Palazzo Vecchio starting from the top flor of the Uffizi) to Palazzo Pitti located on the other side of the river Arno. It passes through and along some of Florence’s most important buildings crossing over the Ponte Vecchio and, during the warmer months of the year) ends up in the... 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

It is an unforgettable experience. Centuries of history in one place. Even Hitler was here. In addition to being a work of great architecture, it houses a fabulous collection of paintings. Incredible, a unique jewel in the already incomparable Florence. Do not miss the opportunity to visit when it's open. It's simply wonderful.Many thanks to the guides Catarina and Julia.

Due to close in November 2016, this reservation was a coveted spot. The Visari Corridor connects the Uffizi to the Palace and the tour was personal and engaging. We were the only 6 people in the corridor for one hour! The self portrait gallery was exceptional.

My wife and I went on Vasari Corridor on Oct.16th by Florencetown Tours. The tour started at 1500 hours, and was combined with a tour of the Uffizzi. The corridor does not keep regular operating hours and was closed during the summer of 2016. The Medici used the Corridor to walk from the Pitti Palace to the Uffizzi without having... More

The Vasari Corridor linking the Uffizi gallery with the Pitti palace & the Bobli gardens was one of the highlights of the visit to Florence.

The tour has to be booked through a tour group to gain access to the corridor. The Ufizzi gallery is accessible to all but would still recommend a guided tour to get the most out of it. Walkabout Florence tours were great

Did this as part of an Uffizi Gallery tour with FlorenceTown Tours. It was the best part of the tour. Felt like the "behind the scenes" tour, because so few people get to do it. We were told they are closing it to the public again next month due to safety concerns. You can't go 3 feet in the nearly... More
