Www.facebook Private Tour: the Vasari Corridor

 Corridoio Vasariano Firenze

Visiting the Vasari Corridor (Corridoio Vasariano) is the most exclusive experience to organise in Florentine museums. The corridor was projected in 1565 by Giorgio Vasari for Cosimo I de' Medici and represents an exceptional architectural masterpiece for it's structure and for the fact that it was built in less than 6 months.

Normally the Corridor is not open to the public. A special authorization has to be asked to museum local authorities to open and visit it. Visitors have to be accompanied by an authorized guide and a museum assistant during their tour along the Corridor.

This extraordinary elevated passageway connects Palazzo Vecchio with the Uffizi Gallery to Pitti Palace, ending in the Boboli Garden by the Great Cave (Grotta Grande), masterpiece by Buontalenti. The path accommodates a varied collection of portraits of different times and remarkable prestige and represents an excellent architectonic example of Vasari's genius as an architect.

This passage connects the three Medici's palaces by crossing the Arno river along a hidden path through the Ponte Vecchio, winding with banked up towers and antique buildings. Whilst walking on the path, visitors may admire unforgettable views of the city and it's principal monuments, overviews and glimpses that may only be appreciated through the small windows of the one kilometre Corridor. In the Corridor visitors can also discover the internal window that opens up into the church of Santa Felicita. This singular opening would enable the Medici to attend mass from their private, elevated position and to spy upon their citizens without being seen!
