I really enjoyed touring the Vasari Corridor! I didn't know before the tour about all the art along the way. I felt I had a sneak peak into the world of the Medici Family and the city during those times. To see the city from the perspective inside the corridor was very interesting.

The Uffizi cancelled tours of the Vasari Corridor after I had booked, but the replacement tour offered by Exclusive Connection surpassed expectation. The guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and went to great lengths to ensure everyone had an excellent experience on the outdoor Vasari tour and the indoor Uffizi tour. She made it a highlight of my stay in Florence. Thank... More

We had to reschedule and they were very helpful. Not only great paintings, an amazing part of understanding and appreciating Fiorentino history.

I would highly recommend a private tour of the ufizzi gallery with exclusive connection. I have visited the gallery several times as i live in Tuscany, but our guide Elisa brought the place to life for our small group. She set the scene of life under the medici rule and then very carefully picked out the most important rooms and... More

We managed to squeeze this visit in last minute. So happy Exclusive could accomodate us. It is a fascinating collection and history of the Medici family and the guide gave us good insight and information. She let us stop to look at the views without rush.

Extremely well organized - we met Exclusive connection at the Pitti palace - a lady with a bicycle and list of those on the tour of the Uffizi gallery. Two minutes before we were supposed to leave, Silvia, our guide turned up - then the lady with the bicycle went on to get us tickets to the gallery. Silvia was... More

The walk from the Uffizi Gallery to the Pitti Palace is really fantastic. It is definitely a must in Florence, however, the Ufizzi may take away all the paintings from the walkway so as not to damage them with the number of tourists. This tour is already restricted to the amount of people who can do this tour and to... More

We contacted Exclusive on the off chance they had two tickets for the Vasari Corridor tour for the next day. But total luck they had a cancellation. Ester was super helpful; she held the tickets for us until we were able to find the office. The tour itself was outstanding and our guide was very knowlegeable. Overall, an awesome experience...

I am so glad I traversed down the larger more reviewed tours and selected Exclusive as the tour operator for the Uffizi and Vasari Corridor. I was somewhat concerned that the tour for the Uffizi started at the Pitti Palace...(isn't that away from the Ufizzi?). Not to fear Roberto (guide) is here. As a guide he walked us from Pitti...

Staying in Santa Croce

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
