Amazing that you got to see the corridor and walk it's path ! Great description... gotta go to Boboli next time i visit.... yup, sure!


Wow! The corridor is so cool and I loved that grotto. What a strange little place! Great pics. I love coming to your site and seeing the pics and details of your adventures.



I'm so sorry we missed the gardens when you were here! See the things I learn when I stick around a place for a little while? Definitely, next time!


Thanks for the compliments, and glad you're enjoying my rambles! I agree, that grotto is a really odd place. I never would have had any idea it was there had we not been dropped literally in front of it!



I was in Florence 2 years ago. I tried every way I could for months to get a tour in Vasari Corridor. I had been in student in Florence in 1966. Flood damage kept me from seeing it then. Uncooperativeness kept me from seeing it two years ago. Oh how I envy you. I guess I will just have to go back and try again.

Chris, that's really unfortunate. I'm sorry, but not surprised, to hear of that Italian intrasigence. I know we lucked out.

It must have been very interesting to be in Florence during the flood - we were able to see a lot of pictures for the 40th anniversary. Horrible.

Thanks for your comment!

Thanks for all this info - hope to get into the Corridor this month - fingers crossed.
