  • I went to visit the library designed by Michelangelo, which was closed. What that Miss at the box office has shied away from the radar, if not after making me pay the ticket. Council inquire first, so as to avoid these curious ' forgetfulness ' by the staff.

  • in the Basilica of san lorenzo, at the bottom of the cloister on the first floor, the library offers an intimate place out of time and the old works of several centuries with splendid illuminations.

  • Famous architecture the stairway designed by Michelangelo that anticipates the baroque of almost a century. Beautiful reading room with benches designed to fulfill three functions of shelf, lectern and seat to see the manuscripts therein contained. Beautiful stained glass in yellow and gold and white and Red terracotta floors of half of the sixteenth century. Through the wonders of Florence the Medici Library is one of the least known but in my opinion we should not lose it.

  • Wonderful and special Place. Not crowed of tourists. calm and quite place in the caotic heart of Florence
  • The stately entryway, dominated by a grand stairway, leads into the breathtakingly handsome library. Michelangelo's design, unharmed by a grafted-on alcove added later, is almost overwhelming. But instead of feeling miniaturized by the library's Titanic proportions, the effect is rather the opposite. You feel a part of the structure's majestic dignity. Sounds over the top, I know. But try it and see.
  • Lovely cloisters and associated rooms
  • Fascinating library that brought back to my mind memories from my high-school classes of history of art.
  • I think here is a brilliant library for mankind.
