What You Can Expect

VIP Experience: Uffizi Gallery and Vasari Corridor Walking Tour Including Terrace Breakfast

Walk around the rooms of the Uffizi Gallery while listening to your guide!

At 8am, meet your professional guide in Central Florence and head to the Uffizi Gallery. You’ll skip the long lines with VIP entry as soon as the doors open – before the general public steps foot inside!

Embark on a 2-hour guided walking tour through the gallery's main rooms. Hear informative commentary on the artwork and gain insight into the history behind the Renaissance works. Then, on the sunny gallery terrace, enjoy an Italian breakfast, a coffee with a selection of pastries.

After exploring the Uffizi Gallery, the doors leading to the Vasari Corridor will be opened exclusively to your small group. Built above the Ponte Vecchio, the passageway dates back to 1564 and stretches almost a mile between Palazzo Pitti, over the Arno to Palazzo della Signoria. Hidden between city houses and even passing through a church, the corridor has evolved as one of the most astounding architectural masterpieces of the Renaissance.

Having private access when the Vasari Corridor is closed to the general public is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that allows you to get up close to its highlights. As your guide transports you back to the times of the Medici, imagine the royal Cosimo and his wife, Eleonora, walking along their private corridor from one side of Florence to the other while observing the crowd below!

The Vasari Corridor ends at the Boboli Gardens, and your VIP tour concludes at noon just outside the gardens where you can continue exploring Florence on your own.

The tour was excellent, and the guide was incredibly knowledgeable, a woman with an art history degree from a university in Florence. Seeing the Vasari corridor was a fabulous experience, and I am so happy I had the opportunity to do so!

Definitely an outstanding experience! Our guide, Mario was passionate about his florentine treasures and taught us how to feel the same, bravo! Good start for your 2-3 day visit to the Uffizi. The corridor experience was unique, and had a nice continental breakfast at the right time.

Overall, an excellent tour. Our guide, Caterina was very knowledgeable and passionate about the art and history of the Uffizi. The tour of the Vasari corridor was special....we were one of only two groups in the corridor and felt very special to have essentially a private tour of the corridor.

Best tour we had on a two week trip to Italy. Guide was very good and the Vasari Corridor was special since almost nobody else was allowed through the secret door and we were alone inside for a very private tour. Fantastic art and stories about the buildings, art, history of the place and time. Wonderful!
