The Vasari Corridor is a long pathway that links the Uffizi Gallery to the Pitti Palace. The original purpose of the passageway was so that the Medici family can reach Palazzo Vecchio from their home in the Pitti Palace safely without any trouble.
Today it is a special museum which houses many important and famous pieces. This hidden museum is only found behind an unmarked door on the first floor of the Uffizi Gallery!
The museum has a very quiet, yet thrilling atmosphere. The majority of the art here comes from the 16th and 17th centuries. The collection was begun by Cardinal Leopoldo de’ Medici in the 17th century.
This magical step back into time also provides visitors with excellent views of Florence that most other people do not have the opportunity to see. Entrance to the museum is only allowed with groups and a reservation. A visit to the Vasari Corridor is truly a unique experience!
