What to expect

Enjoy this one single opportunity to discover the Uffizi Gallery, Italy's most important museum, and learn the secrets of the Vasari Corridor, the Medici family's hidden passageway.

The Uffizi Gallery houses the most incredible collection of artworks from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and beyond. A collection of masterpieces by artists such as Giotto, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Botticelli, and many more. With this tour, you will have the opportunity to enjoy an approx. 2.5-hour guided tour of the main rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, skipping the usual long lines with your priority entrance ticket.

With an in-depth explanation by a professional guide, uncover the Vasari Corridor history and secrets as you walk along its path from the outside. Hidden between city houses and even passing through a church, the Vasari Corridor has evolved as one of the most astounding architectural masterpieces of the Renaissance. Experience the same perspective of the Medici family's enemies trying to follow and track the Grand Duke's movements inside the passageway between the royal residence (Palazzo Pitti) and the government palace (Palazzo Vecchio).
