If you are obsessed with Medici family and you love the Renaissance mathematical balance you must visit this unique church. The is a small entrance fee. The church is quiet and easy to contemplate it’s beauty. You will get a small leaflet which helps you to follow all the parts of the building. The most striking is the ceiling and the domes.

The front is unfinished and may keep visitors away--to their loss. The ticket is 7 euros and well worth it. The nave in white wash and grey stone, the corinthian capitals, the coffered ceiling are splend and make the basilica one of the most beautiful churches in Florence. Unfortunately Donatello's bronze pulpits are virtually invisible because they are too high up and very dark (they should be brought down to eye level--surely this is not too difficult). Lippo Lippi's "Annunciation" is not to be missed (its etherea purity contrasts with Robert Browning's magnificent dramatic monologue "Fra Lippo Lippi"). Brunelleschi's sacristy is a superbly refined variation on the Pantheon in Rome though on a less monumental scale (cube and half sphere) but, unlike most visitors we did not find the Donatello reliefs add anything to its beauty. Beautiful cloister leading to an exhibition of the Basilica's treasure (for those into splendiferous objets de piété). Don't forget to look at Donatello's tomb.

It doesn't look like a fancy church from the outside. But, inside it's a beautiful church. Include Laurentian Library was designed by Michelangelo.

I went to visit the basilica on a rainy day and it was beautiful. Basilica di San Lorenzo is located in Florence, It is one of several churches that claim to be the oldest in Tuscany. I highly recommend a visit! Bye

We have been today at Basilica of San Lorenzo, which at first may not seem so appealing and fancy as Santa Maria Del Fiore Cathedral but was a true gem! First of all We have spent more than an hour walking through the treasure of San Lorenzo where you can see also the tombs of Donatello. I was a bit disappointed to see that there's no access to Cosimo the Elder's tomb although we could see it only behind the gate. I was very looking forward for it. Our remarkable experience started when we went inside the Basilica,he architecture designed by Brunelleschi is astonishing and combined with marvellous paintings and the superbe customer service provided esoecially from Ms Sandra M which spent more than an hour with us explaining the whole hystory of Florence and the Medici family made our visit today a true remarkable experience. Really reccomend it!
