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.

This is a wonderful tour of the amazing UFFIZI GALLERY and the VASARI CORRIDOR is a must,
The early start was great as the weather had been very hot. The light snack in the very nice cafe was very well organised.
BARBARA our guide was excellent as she is very knowledgeable about history and art plus she ischarming and very bubbly her passion for art truly shows through.

The only glitch we had were the instructions for meeting the guide were not clear therefore I emailed VIATOR the previous day requesting clear instructions on where to meet - to date I still have not had a reply.
We were lucky in that we happened upon another family who were ibooked on the same tour who also
Did not have clear instructions - luckily by default we found our tour . Thank you BARBARA for a wonderful tour.
