The Vasari Corridor is the elevated enclosed passageway that connects Palazzo Vecchio to Pitti Palace, passing through the Uffizi Gallery and over Ponte Vecchio. It’s about 1 kilometers long and offers unique views over the city.
Since November 2016 the Corridor has been under major restoration works, due to security reasons and for a complete reorganization of the collection on display. According to the Uffizi Gallery’s Director Eike Schmidt, the Vasari Corridor is going to be reopened on May 27th 2018.
The date aims to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the terrorist attack of via dei Georgofili, happened in the night between May 26th and 27th in 1993.
At the moment the first part of the Vasari Corridor is opened to the public: it’s the Passage of the Prince and connects Palazzo Vecchio to the Uffizi Gallery. It’s opened upon reservations and includes the ticket to both museums.
