Veer off the tourist trails and visit the Medici Tombs
Within the Basilica of San Lorenzo you will find the Medici Tombs, where all the members of the famous and influential Medici family are buried. Michelangelo was appointed chief architect of the Medici tombs, and he certainly did them justice by designing the ‘New Sacristy’ Chapel. His students continued his work here and completed it in 1534. The crypts and elaborate sculptures are very impressive. Restored a few years ago, it should definitely be added to your list of ‘must sees’.
Though part of San Lorenzo church, there is a separate entrance for the Tombs.
San Lorenzo Church, Piazza Madonna degli Aldobrandini
