Create an itinerary including Cappelle Medicee
An array of statues hewn by Michelangelo and his pupils adorn Cappelle Medicee, two ornate chapels built in honor of the Medici family and others who served as the Grand Dukes of Tuscany. Michelangelo's Sagrestia Nuevo contains the ornate marble tombs of Giuliano and Lorenzo de Medici. The walls of the octagonal Cappella dei Principi--a 17th-century collaboration between the Medicis and several architects--are infused with inlays of semi-precious stonework. The project's massive scope required the construction of a special stone workshop, the Opifio delle Pietre Dure. The chapels draw many visitors, so consider skipping the lines by buying tickets online.

  • I haven't seen such a mind blowing Christian place like The Medici Chapel up to now. Everyone should see the chapel and take some time to examine all those details. Wonderful really.
  • one of the highlights of Florence, though you would not expect it from looking at the outside of this chapel. Absolutely splendid inside and decorated with sculptures by Michelangelo. Simply a wonderful experience!
