Corridoio Vasariano In Florence, Italy: Special Opening On Dec 8, 2012

The famour corridor between Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti will be opened on Dec. 8, 2012

PRLog - Nov. 6, 2012 - FLORENCE, Italy -- Brilliant expression of the power of Medici and of the imagination of the architect Giorgio Vasari, the path winds its way in the heart of Florence, from Palazzo Vecchio to Palazzo Pitti, revealing amazing views over the city. The Vasari corridor was built by Giorgio Vasari in only five months in 1564, on the occasion of the wedding of Francesco I de' Medici and Johanna of Austria, to link the Pitti Palace, residence of the Grand Duke, in the Uffizi (offices) where the King used to work. It is an aerial walkway from the West Hall of the Gallery, descend towards the Arno River and the line passing on large arches, then runs above the shops of Ponte Vecchio. On this occasion, in order not to upset with bad smells the walk of the Grand Duke, he was driven away from the meat market and in its place (since 1593) were called goldsmiths who still work there. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover the famous collection of self-portraits, which is unique in the world for quality and number of works, the result of a passion for the art of the last Medici. At short distance from Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, the Hotel Annabella offers to visitors cosy rooms with private bath, phone and TV. The hotel has also a wonderful roof terrace with a panoramic view on Florence and it's located in the city center of Florence, nearby the central train station Firenze SMN and very close to all points of attraction of Florence.
