Do not skip this chapel! You might be fooled when you enter but you have to move a little further and go to the actual chapel. It is very impressive and very rich in decoration. Currently there is some restoration work going on to prevent...More

The Medicis were some wealthy folks. You won’t understand just exactly how wealthy and powerful they were until you walk into their marble tomb room. Oh my gosh. It is more massive and awe-inspiring than I can describe. Of all the things I saw on...More

The downstairs section of the chapel is okay, it’s when you go upstairs that it gets exciting. The chapel is amazing and totally unexpected when you go inside. Should probably only take 30-40 mins for the visit.

The new austere chapel with beautiful works of Michelangelo and his co-workers stays in sharp contrast to the ‘Princess chapel’ with rich wall decorations and stain glass windows. However, the lack of other distractions allow the visitor to appreciate the beautiful statues. It is a...More

Well, the Cappelle is just one thing you can see here - and to me, it was also the most amazing art, worth the ticket on its own. The tombs of the Medicees are on display, amazing in size and splendor, second only to the...More

Fifteen minutes is all you need is all you need to see Michelangelo's final statues in Florence. Michelangelo carved the tombs between 1524 and 1534, when he left Florence for the last time and moved to Rome. The sculptures were not even mounted. Consider this:...More

I was recommend to visit the Cappelle but I was really astonished by the beauty and coldness. It is incredible creation by a human. I have never seen such masterpieces before. Michelangelo is a genius, everybody who visits Florence should touch to this cold beauty

What a beautiful monument to a powerful family and their artistic friends. This is an incredible sight with marble walks, floors and works by Michelangelo. Do quite compared to the rest of touristy Florence .

After a short queue we entered the building to buy tickets. There was one small notice that said the Michelangelo statuary was partially hidden due to restoration work. We were very disappointed to discover it was completely hidden by very high hoarding. The reliquaries on...More

I cannot recall what we paid, but one online vendor says tickets start at €13.00 +/- including the booking fee. At the door (probably with a waiting line) they may be less... perhaps € 7.00. The Cappella Medici was a bit... More
