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.

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.
