Vasarian Corridor

The Vasarian Corridor is a secret passageway high above the streets of Florence that runs one kilometre from the Uffizi Gallery, over the Ponte Vecchio, to the Palazzo Pitti.

The corridor houses a large number of prestigious paintings and self portraits from the 16th to the 20th century.

Normally the corridor isn't open to the general public, as evidenced by these two guards at the Palazzo Pitti entrance.

Study Abroad Italy students were given an exclusive opportunity to see inside the corridor, something that many locals have never experienced.
