Lovely monument to the glory ages of Florence

This chapel is a stunning work of art. The stonework is simply stunning. It's a beautiful way to experience some of the grandeur of medieval Florence without quite so many crowds

Such a wonderful place to visit - especially on a rainy day as it was for us. The history is incredible what this family did - the Michangelo sculptures are such a contrast to the upper tombs. For the list

I had wanted to visit to see the tombs carved by Michelangelo and was also impressed by the other Medici tombs. Very beautiful and opulent!

A very lovely basilica. The resting place of the Medici family and the famous artist, Donatello. The inside of this church is decorated similarly to San Croce. There are also reliquaries of saints in the basement of the church near the tombs of Cosimo 1 and his family. Unfortunately, the tomb of Cosimo 1 was gated off so you had... More

If the city of Florence itself doesn't impress upon you the wealth and influence of the Medici family, this chapel will. Its an amazing round of lush colorful marble for their private use. The chapel is more impressive and glorious than many papal tombs, and worth a visit.

Learned about the medici's in art class and how they contributed to the Renaissance art scene by contributions of their wealth and also hiring those like michaelangelo to created masterpieces for their estates. We visited the chapel in May 2012, but some of the rooms had ladders and areas of the walls covered due to refurbishment at that time. Beautiful... More

Really disappointed. 15 years ago it was my favorite art stop in Florence. Now it's costly, artworks have been removed, half is being restored. I remember better days.

Amongst some religious art, the Michaelangelo statues are outstanding & should be a must-see in Florence.

Here there are the tombs of Medici family (or the most famous ones). Here we were able to see Florentine art at its peak. The marble insertions are famous, the Medici family logo can be seen everywhere, as well as other pieces of art. It also hosts a famous chapel with statues made by Michelangelo (day and night, etc). It... More
