  • Explore Florence's worth from within and without. And what makes better the city than Uffizi and the Vasari Corridor?The Vasari Corridor is from the heart of the Uffizi Gallery, to the Boboli Garden.It is significantly divided into two parts. The first with a collection of oils in Caravaggio style, and a second dedicated to portraits of different historical moments.
  • Whilst the tour guide walked us on the route taken by the corridor it would have been much, much better to walk the corridor itself. The talk given by the guide was very interesting but it remains a shame that the corridor was closed to the public.
