Know More about this tour

If you are looking for a tour that can help you to learn more about the Medici family, this is the right one! When Cosimo the Elder, in the fifteenth century, asked Brunelleschi to renovate the church of San Lorenzo, he wanted a kind of a temple where he could help his friend artist to express all his skills in architecture. Few years later, Pope Leo X, first one in the family to become Pope, order to Michelangelo the decoration of the so-called New Sacristy: for the celebration of Lorenzo il Magnifico and his brother Giuliano.
It was then Cosimo I who had the dream to celebrate the magnificence of all the princes of his dinasty with the realization of the Chapels, something like a simple family burial place transformed into a sumptuos mausoleum, where every single corner is designed with artisan and handcrafted works and mosaics of precious stones.
