My husband and I are not big on touring churches, but we really enjoyed being able to see the tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo. It's hard not to be impressed with the seeing the tombs of these famous people, as well as the beautiful interior of the church itself. We liked that there were not throngs of tourists everywhere and we had the chance to look around without feeling too crowded which is the case at many attractions. I would still recommend going as early as you can to avoid potential crowds, especially those large tour groups that take over!
