About Basilica of San Lorenzo

Complementing Florence’s Renaissance architecture, the Basilica of San Lorenzo is one of the city’s oldest churches, dating back to 393 AD. While the exterior remains unfinished, the church was titled Duomo for some 300 years before serving as the Medici parish church and mausoleum.

Wander around the Cannon’s Cloister, an enchanting green space filled with natural light and framed with an elegant arcade of columns and arches. Within the main body of the church, you’ll see a classic interior designed by Filippo Brunelleschi in 1419 and a beautiful Old Sacristy decorated with sculptures by Donatello.

Don’t miss the Medicea Laurenziana Library, a magnificent example of Mannerist architecture created by Michelangelo. Ascend via the curved wooden staircase and explore over 3,000 manuscripts collected by the Medici family. Take a guided tour to learn about the vital role the Basilica played in shaping the world of art and architecture.

Getting there

The Basilica of San Lorenzo overlooks the Madonna Aldobrandini Piazza, just five minutes’ walk from Florence Santa Maria Novella railway station via Piazza Della Stazione and Via del Giglio. There’s also a bus stop directly outside the church.
