Worth a slow stroll through the old cemetary to take in the unique designs of the crusaders tombstones.

Never knew this place was here as my husband and I were really only visiting Pisa to see the leaning tower. We were glad we visited here. It was just amazing - a huge covered cemetery containing many tombs, frescoes and statues. I think it is a must see. You can purchase a combined ticket that includes this and other... More

This is quite an amazing building, it was originally constructed to house the sarcophagus’s from the Roman era and before that were in a number of nearby buildings in Pisa, and has since been added to with many remarkable paintings, plaques, tapestries and the like. There are even burials from as recent as the last 5 to 10 years. Most... More

This was, surprisingly, one of my favourite bits of Pisa. I hadn't really paid much attention to reading about the Camposanto before visiting the "Field of Miracles" but was pleasantly surprised once we were inside. The site contains the remains of some very interesting frescoes. One of which I found particularly interesting depicted a view of the devil and hell... More

Wonderful tombs, sculptures and frescoes however no information boards so this makes it difficult to get much out of. The sarcophagi are incredible.

If you want some time to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Tower and its surroundings this is the place to go. Rectangular, collonaded, marble walkways - tombstones actually - memorials to the powerful and wealthy of Pisa and deceased popes. Central, lawned 'courtyards' offering peace and tranquillity with 'latticed' views of the cathedral and the baptistery... More

After having visited the 'stuccos' in Piazza dei Miracoli, Camposanto has the frescos being started from the 'stuccos'; it is still amazing that these pieces of art have come to our time from generation to generation and passing through peace times and triturated times.

The plain exterior does not hint at the treasures to be found inside. Much of the Camposanto was destroyed by bombing in 1944 and was restored in the 1970's. This is a cool, quiet sight taking one back to the 13th Century. Fascinating burial markers, sculptures, and statues. Lovely open, green center. The Camponsanto is the burial place of many... More

This is a nice place if you appreciate history and know who is buried there. On the internet you can find information about it or get a tour guide.

I'm not normally one to visit cemeteries, especially not on holiday, but Camposanto is really worth the visit. Cool and calm - it gets you away from the crowds. Lovely stonework and lots to see.
