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.

At this time of year, you really didn't need the skip the line tickets. Still an interesting stop.

The only disappointing purchase through Viator and we know it is not their fault. We purchased to save time however at the ticket desk the lady who served us on the morning of the tour was not going to honour our vouchers. We were under the impression that this ticket would cover head sets as well and it didn't our fault for not checking. After scowling at us and looking confused at the voucher they begrudgingly let us in. Disappointed as we didn't skip any lines and waited like everyone else who were purchasing cheaper at the door tickets. Also clearer directions are needed to the ticket office.

There was no line to wait it so entry could have been very easy without it. I also visited after peak season so maybe that is why there was no line.

For people interested in the Medici and in Renaissance art and history, this is a not-to-be-missed venue, containing Michelangelo's carvings for all Medici tombs. What we purchased was not a guided tour, but simply an admission ticket. Still, for those who have been steeped in the Renaissance or even just WANT to be, it was a spectacular experience. I can't say enough good things about it.

It wasn't any line, and we were in full season (August 12th, at 11 a.m.) and if you buy the ticket at the entrace is only 8 euro each. We payed 18 euro/person and we hadn't have anything special than other visitors

Worth a trip. Best to read up on the Medici family and Florence's history before visiting. Or, take the Academia and Uffizzi tour first, as guides will explain the history of the Medici family.
