What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Florence Vasari Corridor with Optional Boboli Gardens Ticket

Upgrade to explore the glorious Boboli Gardens at your leisure

Your tour will begin at the Palazzo Vecchio, where you’ll join up with your guide before heading to the Uffizi Gallery. Bypass the main entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket and go straight inside to access the Vasari Corridor.

The Vasari Corridor was constructed in the 16th century, commissioned by Cosimo I. The secret passageway connected the Pitti Palace to the Ufffizi Gallery on the opposite side of the Arno River, and was rumored to allow the members of the powerful Medici family to roam stealthily through the city.

Today, the Vasari Corridor contains one of the world’s most impressive collections of self-portraits, along with Renaissance paintings and sculptures. Admire works from masters such as Rubens, Rembrandt and Velazquez, while checking out views of the Ponte Vecchio from the hushed corridor's circular windows. Learn about the history of the artwork from your guide as you stroll, along with secret stories about the pathway.

Your tour will conclude after an hour, exiting near the Boboli Gardens.

Skip-the-Line Boboli Gardens Entrance Ticket Upgrade:After your guided tour of the Vasari Corridor, enjoy free time to purchase lunch before entering the beautiful Boboli Gardens with your skip-the-line ticket. 
The gardens date back to the 15th century and were enlarged by the Medicis, later inspiring other famous European gardens, including Versailles. Explore at your own pace, admiring the plants, fountains and sculptures that dot the grounds. Amble around the grand monuments, including the amphitheater and 18th-century follies such as the Kaffehaus and Buontalenti Grotto.

Feel free to lounge around the gardens until closing time.

I took my friend this time having been before. Even better second time around and my friend was blown away by the experience. We hope you continue to allow the public to access this very important national treasure.

Yes this was a wonderful tour for art enthusiasts like me. Well guided, interesting history and art. Maybe not so good for those not interested in the material, but then, you probably are not looking at this tour anyway. I highly recommend it for the unusual and not much seen art from early art periods. Loved it.
