What To Expect
Go on an exclusive guided visit of the Vasari Corridor elevated enclosed passageway which connects the Palazzo Vecchio with Palazzo Pitti, passing through The Uffizi Gallery and over the Ponte Vecchio. You will have the privilege to walk through the passageway, following the "Prince's itinerary." It was commissioned on the occasion of the wedding between Francis I and Joan of Austria and built with the idea of giving Florence a precious jewel. It was motivated by the Grand Duke's desire to move freely between his residence and the government palace as passing through the streets could be dangerous and dirty.
You will instantly be hit by a deep sense of emotion: the corridor is a royal passageway that runs over the heads of the citizens of Florence. Discover a superb collection of paintings and a row of round windows, offering breathtaking views over the hills, the Arno river, its bridges, the palaces and churches of the city. Admire the magnificent collection of artists' self-portraits from Vasari to Italian and foreign artists of the 20th century. This is a face to face encounter with artists that doesn't exist in any other museum in the world, a discovery that will print an indelible memory of Florence in your mind forever.
Once your guided visit of the Vasari Corridor is over, you have free time for your lunch (not included), then you may enter the Gardens with your skip-the-line ticket. Upon entry you will discover an enchanting ancient park behind the Pitti Palace, the main seat of the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany. Take a pleasant stroll through the magnificent and elegant Italian style garden, with its harmonic design and scenic perspectives. The park also hosts rare and ancient plants, such as some citrus trees dating back to the Medici times, as well as valuable Roman sculptures. It is an open-air museum with grottos and water fountains, a haven of wonder and peace.
