The exterior of this building belies all that it holds. For a small entrance fee the ground floor hold a few display cases on one side and a book shop selling all books Medici. Up the staircase is where the real beauty is on display,...More

Michelangelo is a dynamic genius, and in his sculpture here there is also rest. The work is simultaneously monumental and peaceful.

We enjoyed our visit to the Medici Chapels. Best collection of relics I have ever seen plus the tombs, of course.

Incredible chapel, with the works of Michelangelo and stunning architecture and design. Inexpensive entry fees too!

We came here after a crazy busy day of touring the “highlights” of Florence and were so glad we did. It is lessor known, therefore less busy. Gorgeous statues and the history/lineage of the Medici is easy to follow in this special place.

Just extraordinary to see Michelangelo is free flow....The New Sacristry is the main attraction where there are seven sculptures by the great man which took over a decade to create. They are superb.

This is simply a can't miss. It's modest in size so very doable if you get overwhelmed by the big stuff. The Michelangelo statues on the tombs are, quite simply, breathtaking. Dawn and Dusk. Night and Day. There's also stunning tilework everywhere. Go!

Definitely worth the 8 euros entrance fee. Amazing saints artefacts and sculptures. You'd need around 1 hour to admire the works of art inside including the sarcophages. Something worth admiring.

The Medici burial chapels are well worth an hour's visit. The chapel of the princes is another Florence WOW moment when you step into that incredible colored marble room. Michelangelo's chapel is more understated but beautiful. I take travelers here every year and everyone is...More

The place is beautiful, go and enjoy it (get a real guide) Dont spend money on the horrible audioguide. Why the hell are they asking me to pay entrance to chappels and separately to the san lorenzo church is beyond me.

San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind
stalls with an array of products in one of the most
traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different
ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor
market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a

fall in love with this area and in particular, with
its variety of food, especially those focusing on

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
