Florence - the Vasari Corridor, the private elevated passageway from the Pitti Palace over the Ponte Vecchio to the Uffizi. Built by Cosimo de Medici when he bought the Pitti Palace in 1564 so that he could travel safely and privately to his offices on the other side of the Arno River in what is now the Uffizi Museum.
