A great place to learn more about the Medici family. Restoration was taking place while we were there; it was intriguing to watch the artists work on that.

Part of the Cappelle is under construction but it doesn’t matter, the rest is just beautiful. The tombs of the Medici family (Cosimo etc) were grandios. A delightful small part of the Basilica San Lorenzo

The sculptural works in the smaller room next to the chapel of the Medici family mausoleum were exquisitely beautiful. These works by Michelangelo exhibited his supreme artistry and craftsmanship. We were completely awed by these masterpieces and gained a new appreciation towards him.

Beautiful statues and incrustations, altar designed by Michelangelo, his tombs of Lorenzo and Giuliano are just exceptional pieces of art one can't miss.

At the back of the San Lorenzo church the Medici chapel is basically a family mausoleum, almost an undercroft at street level but when you go upstairs a very somber room with the Medici tombs. In stark contrast leave the main room in the corner...More

Paid €8 to see the chapel and although beautiful, I would spend the time and entrance fees at the Uffizi or the Accademia if your time is limited. The main chapel is under construction ( as has been in my last two visits) but you...More

Visited here as we had brought the FirenzeCard, were staying nearby and had a hour to spare - wow am I glad I did! The Medici tombs are very grand and really give you a sense of how much money these people had. Beautiful chapel...More

When we attended recently the Michelangelo statue was covered in a hoarding and not at all visible. There was only on very small and ambiguous notice in the entrance lobby. If the main reason for your visit is to see the... More
