Het verhaal

A narrow passage, more than one kilometer long, which links Palazzo Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti going through the Uffizi Gallery. The Vasari Corridor, designed by Giorgio Vasari – architect of the Uffizi – commissioned by the Grand Duke Cosimo I in 1565, for the wedding of his son Francesco with Giovanna of Austria. This extraordinary aerial way was made to allow the Grand Dukes to move safely from their private residence to the government palace. In fact, the new Duke and the new system of government that had abolished the ancient Florentine Republic did not have the full support of the citizens yet. After the completion of the work, the meat market, which took place on the Ponte Vecchio, was moved to avoid bad smells during the passage of the Grand Duke and, in its place, the shops of goldsmiths who still occupy the famous bridge, a symbol of the city, were added.
From the Vasari Corridor you can enjoy a scenic view of the Arno River and the Church of Santa Felicita. As part of the Uffizi Gallery, the corridor houses one of the largest and most important collections in the world of self-portraits and portraits of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The museum path starts from the Uffizi and ends at the Boboli Gardens. Because of the narrowness of the passage, the Vasari Corridor can be visited only by appointment or by booking an exclusive tour covering the visit.
