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!

Your tour will begin at 8am in central Florence, where you’ll meet up with your guide and walk to the Uffizi Gallery. Bypass the long lines at the main entrance and be the first to step inside the museum with your VIP access ticket.

Follow your guide through the main rooms on a 2-hour tour, learning the rich history behind the Renaissance works. Admire masterpieces from Renaissance greats such as da Vinci, Botticelli and Michelangelo. Afterward, stop for an Italian breakfast of pastries and coffee on the gallery’s terrace.

After refueling with coffee and treats, head to the Vasari Corridor for an exclusive tour. Dating back to 1564, the corridor is noted as one of the most impressive architectural feats of the Renaissance. Designed as a secret passageway for the Medici family to travel stealthily through the city, the pathway stretches almost a mile from the Pitti Palace, above the Ponte Vecchio and over the Arno River to the Palazzo Vecchio.

Soak up this unique experience to explore the corridor privately before the general public enters. Examine the collection of paintings and self-portraits, learning the intriguing tales behind the works from your guide. Your tour will conclude near the Boboli Gardens, where you can continue sightseeing independently.

Thanks to Florence Town for a memorable tour of The Uffizi.
Especially to the wonderfully enthusiastic Sara, who made our tour memorable and enlightening. Thanks Sara, you've re-lighted my love of Renaissance art.
I want to go back to school with you as the teacher.
If you are in Florence and like art this is a must see.
I can't recommend this tour high enough.

Excellent tour !!

We had access to one of the most secret place in Florence. The Vasari corridor which connect two palaces.
We have learnt a lot from our guide Lucia B who really knew the subject and could give an answer to our questions. She really made our day.

Having little or no knowledge about art, it was great to have a guide to explain the important paintings to us. Our very nice guide, Federica, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and did her best to make sure we got the most out of our time. We all agreed it was a very worthwhile tour.
