Afterward, head to the Vasari Corridor for an exterior tour and learn the history behind the Medici's secret passageway, built for the family in 1564. Constructed above the Ponte Vecchio, the corridor stretches almost a mile between Palazzo Pitti, over the Arno to Palazzo della Signoria.  Your guide will discuss the unique collection of portraits now housed in the passageway, although the interior of corridor is not currently accessible .

Fun and informative Uffizi tour
Julie_N, Aug 2022
We had a great afternoon tour with Vanessa, who was informative, engaging, charismatic, and had a natural talent of bringing the paintings and their stories to life. With all the art in the Uffizi, we definitely needed a guide to help us make sense of everything we were seeing and were very pleased by this small group tour offered by Florencetown and Vanessa.

Brian_B, Mar 2018
The guide was very nice and organized. The tour is very informative but too slow if you’re going with teens. They spent too long explaining the art in each room. You still have to wait with the group to get into the museum which would take the same amount of time if you were to wait in line on

This is one of the best tours I have ever taken. A great history of painting by a very knowledgeable guide with the material right in front of you. Must do, you owe it to yourself!
