Spend two hours in the neighborhood where the sumptuous palace of the Medici family is located, visiting the San Lorenzo Basilica and admiring the impressive sculptures by Donatello and Michelangelo that decorate the Medici Chapels. The tour ends up very close to the picturesque San Lorenzo food market... right at lunchtime!
Take advantage of an in-depth explanation of the Basilica of San Lorenzo (interior and exterior) and the crypt where Cosimo de' Medici and the famous sculptor Donatello were buried. Admire Brunelleschi's Cloister, visit the exterior of the royal palace and, if accessible, discover its garden and inner courtyard.
Finally, enjoy a guided tour of the unmissable Medici Chapels. Marvel at Michelangelo's New Sacristy and be enchanted by the Chapel of the Princes, which is decorated with a rich inlay of semi-precious stones to create a magical, dazzling interplay of colors using the technique of the Florentine mosaic.
