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

Get the combo ticket-- ask for the chapel, church, and library ticket. You can start at the chapel, or the church, or the library. You want to visit 1] the Medici chapel-- two floors, 2] the Prince's Chapel, an addition to the Medici Chapel which you will eventually find if you wander around enough-- climb stairs to locate; 3] church...

The ticket for 8 euros is a little high considering what you see is just 2 small rooms, however beautiful they are. Not to be missed Michelangelo's tombs of lorenzo and giuliano

A must see. More spectacular than duomo no crowds because most don't realize this is a must see the real tombs are down below not in the main chapel

The Cappelle Medicee is split into two parts, a small meseum downstairs and the chapel in the first floor. If you want to see the wealth of the Medici ... come here.

There appeared to be no information offered to guide you through this historic building. Minimum entrance fee. Lots of stairs. Beautiful historic items but a bit disappointing because we had no explanations.
