This tour encompasses two very important Florence attractions – the most important Italian museum Uffizi Gallery and Renaissance architectural wonder – Vasari Corridor built in 16 th century by the order of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici. It is important to emphasize that this is a skip-the-line guided tour. You will spend the first two hours in the gallery and then you visit the Corridor.
Most people would recognize Florence Ponte Vecchio for its famed beauty, but few people know that running along the top of it is a 500 hundred years old Vasari Corridor. Inside you can retrace the steps of the Medici family. The Corridor links their offices of Uffizi Gallery to their home the Palazzo Pitti. The Corridor was built by Giorgio Vasari in 1564. It houses a very modern collection of portraits. There are thousands of paintings from 17 th and 19 th century here.
This Vasari Corridor tour will help you discover the full story behind these two Florence attractions because you will have an in-depth explanation by a professional guide who will share all the details about these architectural masterpieces. The entrance of the Corridor is on the first floor of the Uffizi Gallery and most people visiting do not know that behind these doors stands a great treasure because there are works of renowned artists like Giotto, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and many others. Once you've entered the Vasari Corridor it looks like you have stepped into another dimension - the atmosphere is unreal and completely different from the rest of the Gallery. On the other hand, Uffizi Gallery tour will allow you admire the artistic works inside the most important museum in Florence. It is definitely something that should not be missed when in Florence because it offers a unique experience for every visitor. This is why we are sure you will be back again.
