In the heart of Florence, a stone’s throw from the Ponte Vecchio and next to Piazza della Signoria, stands the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important and well-known museums in the world.
The gallery houses many wonders of European art and in particular of the Italian Renaissance. Among the thousands of works on display you can admire numerous masterpieces by Giotto, Cimabue, Botticelli, Titian, Leonardo da Vinci.
The Vasari Corridor
The Corridor starts from the Uffizi Gallery and reaches up to Palazzo Pitti about 1 km away. To date it is closed to the public for works that foresee its reopening in 2021 with a new installation. The corridor is a museum separate from the Uffizi and access to a very small number of visitors is allowed to maintain its integrity, making it something even more special and exclusive.
If you would like to visit the Vasari Corridor after reopening, you must book in advance, one of the few guided tours of Florence that allow access.
The turnout at the Uffizi gallery is high and queues are often long, but you can remedy this problem by buying online, with a small surcharge, in addition to the entrance ticket, also a reservation with a set time.
The Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities has been allowing free admission to museums on the first Sunday of each month for a few years (museums have the right to decide from time to time whether or not to join the initiative).
