Iinerary
The visitable parts of the Medici Chapels are the New Sacristy and the Princes Chapel. Right after the entrance the visitor will find the crypt, on which floor there are tombs of the grand dukes and the wives. From two staircases the visitor enters in the Princes Chapel, an amazing family mausoleum in baroque style.
The New Sacristy is the funeral chapel of Pope Leone X (from Medici family) that entrusted Michelangelo for the work.
By modifying the original map of the New Sacristy made by Brunelleschi, Michelangelo proved again his talent as architect and sculptor.  
On the sidewalls the visitor can admire the monumental tombs dedicated to Giuliano Duke of Nemours and the nephew Lorenzo Duke of Urbino. The sepulchres illustrate the Allegories of Time: Day and Night for Giuliano de’ Medici and Sunset and Dawn for the nephew Lorenzo.
Then, Michelangelo left Florence leaving the work unfinished: Lorenzo il Magnifico is in fact buried under the altar but without the monumental entombment.
