Make your way to the Medici Chapels, located on Piazza di Madonna degli Aldobrandini in Florence. Present your skip-the-line ticket to bypass the long lines and proceed directly inside.
The opulent chapel can be explored at your leisure. During your time there, learn that the Medici family (along with several church leaders) commissioned Michelangelo to build the chapel as a pendant to Filippo Brunelleschi's Sagrestia Vecchia. The Sagresti Nuova was to be a mausoleum and a private church for the Medici family, staunch supporters of the church.
Construction began in 1520 and was completed by Giorgio Vasari in 1546. Of the planned 4 tombs, only 2 were built. These two hold the bodies of Giuliano Lorenzo de'Medici and Lorenzo di Piero de'Medici and are decorated with Michelangelo's allegorical sculptures Night, Day, Dawn, and Dusk.
