Vasari Corridor



The Vasarian Corridor was commissioned on 1565 by Cosimo I De' Medici, to connect Palazzo della Signoria and the Medici's private residency, Palazzo Pitti, to the architect Vasari. The Corridor function was to allow the Medici Family to move freely and safely from the political buildings to their residence avoiding to walk among crowds in the streets, and been attacked by enemies. The corridor, a part from being a great walk over Ponte Vecchio with panoramic views over Florence, hosts one of the largest self-portraits collection and through a tiny window you will be able to sneak inside the Santa Felicita lovely church. The Corridor is only open for short periods of time during the year and can be visited in groups only by previous appointment
