Michelangelo's Secret Room - an extremely rare and limited chance to visit this newly unveiled space. Long hidden from the public, we can now offer a chance to appreciate the creative process and exploratory sketches of Michelangelo. This tiny and long forgotten chamber - La Stanza Segreta di Michelangelo - has now been opened to the public for a limited period.

This hidden room, only brought to light during excavations in 1975 and painstakingly restored, served as a refuge for Michelangelo when he faced a death sentence from Pope Clement for his involvement in the short-lived Republican government. Although the sentence was swiftly revoked, allowing him to resume his work in Florence, this compact space unveils an array of sketches and plans for future masterpieces. Executed in charcoal and chalk, the works often overlap, and provide a rare insight into the artist's evolving techniques.

Availability is extremely limited, with only 100 visitors per week, strict time slots and a maximum of 2 visitors per slot. The location is down a narrow staircase and is not accessible to visitors with disabilities or children under 10.

This ticket also includes your entrance to the Medici Chapels.
