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 in 2021.
