Half of this is under construction inside as of Jan 2016 but it is still worth the price of admission. The artwork and sculptures inside are breathtaking.

Interior in this tower is breath-taking. When you enter the main room your sight automatically slips to the ceiling which is spectacular. Trust me and try it!

If you are a fan of the Medici you cannot miss the Medici Chapels. All the family is buried. If you are a fan of Michelangelo you cannot miss the Medici Chapels. He designed the New Sacristy and made the famous tombs with the Dawn, Dusk, Night and Day

If you have FirenzePass and can enter for free then this is a lovely chapel to see, though the line to enter can be a bit long. However, if you have to pay then I would not count it particularly worth the time and money. It is stunning inside, but there is not a ton to see and much of... More

We went here to see how the Medicis prayed, and some parts of it were interesting. There is Donatello's tomb here, and one of the Medicis is the pillar holding up the church. The library looked nice but we could only peer through the door because, while the chapel stays open, the library closes at one. The grounds were nice,... More

After touring museum after museum and church after church, I'm so glad we stopped here. Even my husband, who though everything looked the same, was glad we stopped here. The entry fee wasn't too steep compared to some of the other sites. The details in the chapel are awe inspiring. Even the floors were beautiful!

The chapel on the outside is plain and simple. Nothing on the inside is plain and simple. The Michelangelo's are stunning. the marble and mosaics are wonderful.

It is impressive, a must-see in Florence. It is small yet overwhelming with history. This is the private chapel of one of Italy's prominent and powerful families, the Medici. Exploring the opulently decorated chapel gives you an insight of the family's wealth, grandeur and prestige. You also get to see some excellent sculptures of Michaelangelo without the queue and the... More

Most people who go here spend most of their time in the Medici tombs, looking at Michelangelo's two statutes -- Day and Night and Dawn and Dusk. Honestly, of all this works I've seen so far, these are among my least favorite -- perhaps because the women are so unfemale: they have men's bodies with oddly shaped breasts just stuck... More
