After the visit of the Uffizi Gallery you will enjoy a unique cultural experience: a private visit of the Vasari Corridor reserved only for your Family.
On the occasion of the marriage of Cosimo I dei Medici son Francesco to Giovanna d'Austria, Cosimo I asked Vasari to design a raised passageway connecting Palazzo Vecchio with Palazzo Pitti. The passage starts from Palazzo Vecchio, crosses Via della Ninna in the form of a covered bridge, traverses part of the Uffizi, descends in long steps close to the Arno and then runs parallel to the river above a portico. Crossing above the shops of Ponte Vecchio, the Corridor continues in the Oltrarno district, passing in front of the facade of the church of Santa Felicita to reach the Boboli Gardens, and from there Palazzo Pitti. This extraordinary aerial passage was conceived to enable the Grand Dukes to move in safety, without the need of escorts, from their private residence to the seat of government; it represented an element of considerable prestige for the Medici.
After the visit your driver will escort you back to the Port.
