Basilica di San Lorenzo
The Basilica di San Lorenzo is a large church that is situated in the main market district of Florence, Italy. The church was consecrated in the 4th century, making it one of the oldest churches in all of Florence. The church has gone through many changes over the years and eventually became the burial place of the principal members of the Medici family of Florence. Along with its ancient history, the Basilica di San Lorenzo is mostly known for its stunning Renaissance architecture, including the internal façade, much of which was designed by Michelangelo.
- Visit the Old Sacristy, the oldest part of the church, and see the ancient tombs of several members of the Medici family, as well as the sphere and cube designed by Brunelleschi.
- Walk down the north aisle of the Basilica di San Lorenzo to see the spectacular The Martyrdom of St Lawrence, a fresco that was painted by Florence master Agnolo di Cosimo.
- Stand at the nave and look back at the entrances to the church to see the portion of the internal façade designed by Michelangelo in 16th century Florence.
One of the best ways to see the Basilica di San Lorenzo is to take a guided historical tour of Florence. This way, you can learn about more of the historic structures and their cultural importance to the city of Florence from an expert guide. If you are using public transport, you should take bus 7, 10, 11, 25, 31, or 32, which will drop you off at or near the entrance to the Basilica di San Lorenzo. There is very little parking nearby, so it is best to use public transport or walk there.
