It's easy to miss the beauty of this because of its proximity to the Leaning Tower but it really is stunning, particularly in early evening as the light fades. In well kept gardens there is a little market and very good cafe nearby, try and...More

The lady guide sang for us in the building and it was glorious, no microphone could come close to the amplification of her voice, travelling to Pisa for day trip from Florence was a great idea. Only takes little over an hour, by car and...More

Most people come here to see the leaning tower, but this building is far more beautiful. You buy an entrance ticket and you can stay as long as you wish. So you are not rushed through. You can climb to the upper level where you...More

I really enjoyed going in the baptistry. Everything from the acoustics to the way the floor slopes so the water can drain out the doors is really cool. I loved hearing the history of the place and how it was used.

Saw the Battistero as part of our 'off cruise' excursion to Pisa. it's a striking building and was a bonus as we thought we would only see the tower. Unfortunately time didn't allow us to go in. so we are now looking at weekend breaks...More

We pre booked tickets for the Tower and opted to visit the Cathedral and Bapistry to. The Bapistry was so quiet and peaceful with beautiful stained glass windows. Worth staying for the wonderful tones of the singer that beautifully filled the building with echoes. Worth...More

Situated in a large walled area in the center of Pisa. A striking monument with its round shape. The Baptistery is on the Unesco World Heritage List. The exterior is richly decorated but the inside of the Baptistery is very sober.

A wedding cake from the outside, the baptistry is relatively free of decoration on the inside. Worth the walk up to the gallery for views down inside and through a window towards the duomo and tower.

Didn't go in this building but took pictures from outside and got a good view from the tower. Biggest of its kind in Italy.

I would say leave a good couple of hours to explore the Piazza del Miracoli. The Tower can get busy. If you can get there around 9am it is much quieter. Camposanto is charming and I spent about 20 minutes here. I spent... More
