Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Choose a morning or afternoon tour and meet your guide near the entrance to the Medici Chapels for a private tour.

Enter the beautiful Medici Chapels to see four gorgeous sculptures by Michelangelo, two on each tomb in the chapel. The figures represent Day, Night, Dawn, and Dusk. The chapel is also decorated with multi-colored pieces of stone, marble, and gems that reflect the almost royal stature of the Medici family. The Opificio delle Pietre Dure (Hard Stones Factory) was created specifically to supply the materials used in the Medici Chapels, and it is still operating today – and used by restoration workshops and museums all over the world.

Continue with your guided tour outside Medici Chapels , in the San Lorenzo neighborhood that is known as the Medici District. It's home to not just the Basilica of San Lorenzo, but also the Palazzo Medici Riccardi.

Cappelle Medicee
Admire with your Guide one of the most famous sculptural cycles by Michelangelo: Il Crepuscolo, L’Aurora, Il Giorno e la Notte (Twilight, Dawn, Day, Night) inside the Sacrestia Nuova (New Sacristy) designed by the great artist. Discover the inlays of precious polychrome marbles, of hard stones and precious gems that cover the walls of the great Cappella dei Principi (Princes Chapel), for which Opificio delle pietre Dure (The Factory of hard Stones) was created especially for these decorations and is today one of the most prestigious restoration workshops and museums worldwide. Finally discover the Cripta del Buontalenti, under the Chapel, where the Medici and their family members are buried. These bodies have been exhumed recently to obtain more details on their lifestyles, illnesses and real causes of their deaths still shrouded in mystery.

Our tour guide Gabriele was...

Our tour guide Gabriele was fantastic! He greeted us outside San Lorenzo and gave us a preview of what we'd see. We went through the museum and the church, and then spent a long time in the Medici chapel itself getting a fascinating lesson on Michelangelo's statues. After that we walked across San Lorenzo square to the Palazzo Medici and heard more stories about the Medici family. Overall a great tour with a top-notch guide.
