Time for a little Florence sightseeing. And the Ponte Vecchio is just one of them, it is one of the landmarks of the city. Today's stone bridge has existed since the fourteenth century and since then there are also these seem chaotic extensions: these are small shops, which are open to the customers and on the outside, like balconies, towering over the bridge. In any case, you must have seen. The two neighboring bridges offer a good view of the Ponte Vecchio and are perfect for a very classic Florence vacation selfie;)
Of course, tourists can access the bridge every day, 24 hours a 24. But, to visit the Vasari Corridor (currently the ordinary visits are suspended for safety checks), they must request to the Superintendentency a special opening for scholars.
The ticket includes an English guide and the access to Uffizi Gallery.
Moreover, during the Nazi occupation in Florence (August 1944), it was just thanks to the Vasari Corridor that the Partisans were able to to link the members of the Resistance on the two banks of the Arno, unbeknown to the Fascists and the Nazis.
