Be sure not to miss this "chapel" where many Medici are buried. The main chapel is very ornate and interesting but the sacristy is where the spectacular Michelangelo sepulchre sculptures are.

Separate from the Basillica de San Lorenzo the chapel and dome is an amazing sight with the largest sarcophagi I've ever seen. A spectacular monument to the Medici family with beautiful Michelangelo sculptures in one of the ante rooms. Well worth seeking out.

Visiting these Michelangelo sculptures was relatively easy compared to the nightmare of visiting the Accademia or the Uffizzi! Unfortunately, however, many of the statues in the main chapel are not in place, presumably being restored! Those in the Sacristy, however, are all there and are worth a visit! One gets to understand the greatness of Michelangelo up close!! Pity much... More

The chapel was quite spectacular in the quantity of marble used. Lots of other very ornate artefacts. Not sure how much it usually costs, but we wandered in on a free Sunday and found it very impressive.

Till I'm able to get into the cathedral, I'm going to consider Capelle Medicee to be my best. Besides to all the amazing interior, mentioning just Michelangelo's statues inside is enough!

I was stunned. We got there at 9:30 am. No lines. Only about 30 other people there. And this is truly (for me) the most beautiful place in Florence. The main chapel with colored marble and other stones not only on the floor, but on every available wall. Inlays of coats of arms. No gold to be seen. Then you... More

What an elegant place! The stone work is imposing, especially the floor. Also some of Michelangelo´s best statues.

One of the issues when we had when in Italy and not with our regular tour was that everything was in latin or italian. This made it very hard to just tour on our own , can't read inscription dedicated to what ever you were looking at. The Cappella Medicee included a free english tour. This was a must see... More
