What to Expect
Grab this exclusive chance to visit the corridor where Cosimo de Medici walked everyday from the Palazzo della Signoria to the Palazzo Pitti on the opposite side of the River Arno. The elevated enclosed passageway connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti and passes through the Uffizi Gallery and over the Ponte Vecchio.

You will have the privilege of following in the footsteps of the “Prince’s Itinerary”. Commissioned on the occasion of the wedding between Francis I and Joan of Austria, the corridor was built to give Florence a precious jewel, and motivated by the Grand Duke's desire to move freely between his residence and the government palace avoiding walking through the dangerous and dirty streets.

Be dazzled by a superb collection of paintings and the row of round windows that afford breathtaking views over the hills, the Arno river, and the bridges, palaces and churches of Florence.

Admire the magnificent collection of art works, from self-portraits by Giorgio Vasari, to Italian and foreign artists of the 20th-Century. Get a face-to-face encounter with artists that will print an indelible memory of Florence in your mind forever.

After free time for lunch, you can enter the beautiful Boboli Gardens with your skip-the-line ticket. Discover an enchanting ancient park, located behind the Pitti Palace. The main seat of the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany, take a pleasant stroll through the elegant Italian style garden, boasting a harmonic design and scenic perspectives that extend between the Pitti Palace and Fort Belvedere.

Look out for rare and ancient plants, such as some citrus trees that date back to Medici times, as well as valuable Roman sculptures, surprising grottos, and water fountains that turn the gardens into a virtual open-air museum.
