Visit Florence’s Astounding Vasari Corridor
There are certain things in Florence, as in every great city in the world, that are on almost all visitors’ itineraries. When in Florence, most will want to see the Uffizi, David, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Piazza della Signoria and, perhaps, the Duomo, but if you are an art, architecture or history lover visiting the city, there’s a hidden gem that you need to know about.
Stretching from the Palazzo Pitti to the Uffizi is a long passageway, measuring almost a kilometre. Named the Vasari Corridor after the man who designed it, it is a lesser-known and less accessible attraction in the city. Built in 1564 by Giorgio Vasari in only five months to link up the Palazzo Pitti and the Uffizi, it served as a private corridor from work to home for the Medici Family.
