Italy’s Day of Contemporary Art on October 11
On Saturday, October 11, the Uffizi Gallery will be celebrating Italy’s “Day of Contemporary Art” by opening up the last part of the Vasari Corridor to special guided visits.
The last part of the Vasari Corridor is dedicated to Self-Portraits from the 1900s and was inaugurated in Septeber 2013. For the day, there are 6 hour-long guided visits planned, all free, at 9am, 10am, 11am, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.
They will be conducted only in Italian, with a maximum of 25 persons per group. If you’re here and interested in seeing this part of the Vasari Corridor, take note: you can only reserve by calling to make the reservation (you can book up to 4 people with one call) starting October 6 between the local time of 8:30am-6:30pm at +39-055-294-883. This is a call center that does have an English speaking line.
Meeting place will be at the entrance of the Rondò di Bacco in the Boboli Gardens 15 minutes before your visit. If you are late, you will lose your spot to participate in the visit.
It is likely the spaces will fill up fast so if you’re in Florence that day and want to take part, plan on calling this Monday to reserve your spot.
REMINDER: This first Sunday of the month, October 5th, the Uffizi and all State museums in Florence are FREE entrance! ENJOY!!
