But the very highlight of the tour is yet to come! 

In 2016, the Vasari Corridor was closed to safeguard this most precious space. Now, Florence—and the world—awaits the reopening of the Vasari Corridor, which is estimated to happen at the end of May 2024. Towns of Italy (at the time, operating as Florencetown) was the very first tour operator to organize and manage regularly scheduled tours available to the public along this legendary elevated walkway. Designed by esteemed architect Giorgio Vasari for the Medici Grand Dukes, the Vasari Corridor offers a unique perspective of Florence, connecting the Uffizi Gallery to the Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace across the Arno River, presenting a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


The Vasari Corridor actually extends from the Palazzo Vecchio, through the Uffizi Gallery, across the Arno River over the Ponte Vecchio, through and around a bevy of historic buildings until leading into the Pitti Palace, then opening out into its Boboli Gardens. With this tour, you thus see snippets of the most iconic places of Florence from a unique vantage point. Ask us about how you can also visit the Palazzo Vecchio, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens after the tour for an even more in-depth understanding of Florence, the Renaissance, art, architecture, history and the (in)famous Medici family bolstered and betrayed by some of the grandest players in history.
