Wow this was one of the smaller places we visited but its definitely a not to be missed attraction. We were just blown away by the incredible stonework, a lot of it was done by the master himself Michelangelo. Don't let the outside fool you. Inside holds a treasure of some of the worlds best masonry. Its an easy visit... More

The Medici's commissioned their tomb sculptures to Michelangelo. 4 statues on 2 tombs should be seen. Buy a ticket in advance to avoid long waits. Take note of how life-like the 2 male statues are vs. the female statues who look just awkward.

Medici Chapels is a state museum of Florence. It is the burial place of the Medici family. The New Sacristy was built by Michelangelo 1519-1530. Here are burried the Grand Dukes of Tuscany and their families. We spent about 2 hours enjoying the history and beauty of this incredible building and the beauty inside. We almost skipped it, glad we... More

Several works and products of Michelangelo here. Not sure why this attraction is not more frequented. Small venue but exceptional works are housed here.

I almost don't want to review this as I don't want to spoil the element of surprise. We knew we had to visit here but had forgotten what was contained within so we really did get a surprise, I want that for you too. Stop ready here and know that you must visit for €5 and you will be awestruck!... More

Literally took my breath away. The Poriphery covering the walls, the mosaics, the floor alone. Mind Blown!

This chapel is incredible. Even though it's quite small you can spend long minutes looking at all the details. We found it way more beautiful than the cathedrale to be honest.

I was hesitant seeing this Cappelle, then I decided to give it a try. You pay 6 or 5 Euros as entry fees but the line was quick and the place was not crowded. When I went there the place was under maintenance yet the beauty of the marbled floor and ceiling live paintings were beyond perfection. Go upstairs to... More
