Description

Explore alongside your private guide one of Michelangelo's most renowned sculptural cycles: Il Crepuscolo, L’Aurora, Il Giorno e la Notte (Twilight, Dawn, Day, and Night), housed within the Sacrestia Nuova designed by the master artist. Marvel at the intricate inlays of precious polychrome marbles, hard stones, and gems adorning the walls of the majestic Cappella dei Principi. This remarkable display was executed with such precision that it necessitated the establishment of the Opificio delle pietre Dure, now revered globally as one of the foremost restoration workshops and museums. Delve further into the Cripta del Buontalenti beneath the Chapel, the resting place of the Medici family and their kin. Recently, these tombs have been reopened, shedding light on their lifestyles, ailments, and the enigmatic circumstances surrounding their deaths. Enhance your visit with a comprehensive guided tour of the Medici district, renowned for its distinctive charm within the city center. Immerse yourself in the history of San Lorenzo church and Palazzo Medici Riccardi, iconic landmarks that epitomize the legacy of the illustrious Medici family.
