The Vasari Corridor (Italian: Corridoio Vasariano) is an elevated enclosed passageway in Florence, central Italy, which connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti. Beginning on the south side of the Palazzo Vecchio, it then joins the Uffizi Gallery and leaves on its south side, crossing the Lungarno dei Archibusieri and then following the north bank of the River Arno until it crosses the river at Ponte Vecchio. At the time of construction, the corridor had to be built around the Torre dei Mannelli, using brackets, because the owners of the tower refused to alter it. The corridor covers up part of the façade of the Church of Santa Felicità. The corridor then snakes its way over rows of houses in the Oltrarno district, becoming narrower, to finally join the Palazzo Pitti. The full length of the corridor is approximately one kilometre.
Very folkloric walk surrounded by all kinds of small shops, from jewellery to ice cream! Has great lateral view of Ponte Vecchio, very close, and provides an inner view, at one point, of the inner part. Great walk but quite loaded with pickpockets!
Its still seem to be closed, quote from Uffizi website 'Visit the magnificent Vasari Corridor in small groups with an English-speaking guide Vasari Corridor CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL 2018' Next year perhaps !
Nice corridor. Nothing special when you've been to Bologna too.
Pretty stroll along the river
Beautiful views of the River Arno overlook the Ponte Vecchio and beautiful houses along the river.
You can't get in it so you only can follow it from the street and use your imagination how it would be using it back then at the time of Medici!
