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.

In these Medici Chapels you see Michelangelo at its best. The Chapel has others points of interest but the sculpture pieces of Michelangelo in these tombs are the highlight of art. A Must See!

Sculptures of Michelangelo in the Chapel of the riche Medicee familys, very beautiful, all decorated in marble, if you find time you can visit this nice chapel.

Beautiful (or gaudy, depending on your perspective) chapel that's worth checking out if you have a Firenze Card or something similar.

This is a beautiful chapel. Upon entrance, you are downstairs looking at some historical items in a fairly plain set of rooms. Then you go up some steps and wham- out of this world marble work, stone work and just a beautiful place. The scale is misleading from outside. Do not pass this up!

The main chapel is a marble extravaganza, but it is all under repair as a piece of marble fell from a ceiling arch and made them look more carefully why. Now they are re-doing the entire thing. None the less, the marble work is over the time and exquisite. The Michelangelo sculptures are a must see as you can get... More

On the ground floor an amazing (and hair-raising) collection of relics in ornamental `containers` - don`t miss it ! On the first floor the magnificent burial chapel covered in marble from floor to ceiling and some of Michelangelo`s most beautiful and elaborate sculptures - a must see !

After seeing the play "Medici Dynasty", a fabulous production, I was in awe of what the Medici family did for the city of Florence. I'm sure through their years of rule, some bad things may have happened, but they also made Florence what it is today. The Medici chapel is a beautiful testimony to their legacy. It is beautiful!

A very interesting place that Michelangelo designed and where some of the big Medicee are buried, including Lorenzo the Magnificent. Michelangelo designed the tomb of Lorenzo, the greatest of all of the Medicee, but unfortunately he did not finish it. He did finish the sculptures and tombs of two other Medicee in the room. The most impressive room is the... More

My husband and I visited here on a Sunday morning..Entry Free on First Sunday of the month. Another grand and imposing interior, showcasing what can be achieved with a lot of money Medici Monies. They were a powerful Dynasty in Florence. Their tombs are on show. There are a lot of marble and mosaic decorations made from semiprecious stones. Sadly... More
