Discover the secrets of the Vasari Corridor
Since you are inside one of Italy's most prestigious and relevant palaces, your visit will also include a foray into the spectacular world of architecture.

However, your guide will tell you everything there is to know about this hidden gem: mysteries, intrigues, and anecdotes. You will be able to find traces of its architectural features as you listen to your guide's detailed storytelling! The Vasari Corridor tour will return as soon as it is reopened!

PLEASE NOTE - VASARI CORRIDOR CURRENTLY UNDER MAJOR RECONSTRUCTION.
In 2007 Florencetown was the first tour operator ever to open this hidden gem regularly to the public, making it possible for everybody to discover it. From December 2016 the Vasari Corridor will be closed to undergo a major reconstruction to highlight even better its architectural characteristics and add some safety exits.
