The Campo Santo is far less visited than the other buildings in this remarkable group but it should not be missed. It is serene and beautiful in its own right. And the restoration work on the frescoes has to be seen to be believed.

We had a couple of hours in Pisa, after dropping our luggage in the left luggage of the train station, before going back to the airport. We caught a bus from there to the Piazza dei Miracoil, easy to spot from the bus! We chose a ticket that included the Duomo, the Baptistry and the Camposanto, and we made a... More

This houses some really ancient tombs and sarcophagus as well as amazing murals, statues and relics. Quite a contrast to the other parts of the area around the Tower and Cathedral, but an important part never the less. Also it still used today for important burials. Certainly worth a visit, especially if bought as a double ticket with the Bapistery.

This place is very interesting and I haven't encountered anything like it... the art is amazing, the statues are just wow and the place itself has character. even the designs on the tombs are amazing. the little space in the middle that lets sunlight in is really nice as well - all green and well kept.

This one was the best value as there are a lot of statues in this beautiful building. There is also a room with a dome where I sat down and sung so that it reverberated round the dome. The musical dome really made it for me :)

We decided to tour the Camposanto as part of our afternoon in the main square. We were happy we did as it turned out to be an interesting site and a little different from the many churches on our itinery during our tour of Tuscany. Part of the site was being renovated at the time but the architerture and the... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I walked in to the Camposanto. Basically it's a massive indoor cemetery. All the graves are in the form of stone engravings and statues with a variety of expressions (we had fun mimicking the faces). It is less crowded than the other attractions, so worth a visit if you want to avoid the... More

We had extra time to visit the area so we took our chances in visiting. We didn't expect the gorgeous murals and statues dotting the area. It was very quiet, not alot of tourists. Beautiful architecture as well. Great little side tour.

It's perhaps a sight that get overlooked with the more obvious leaning tower and duomo. But don't pass it by. It's not expensive and the frescoes are well worth a few minutes of you time.

We almost walked pass this, and then decided to go in. So glad we did, as we had the place to ourselves and it is a haven from the hustle and bustle that is happening outside in the square. Beautiful frescoes that are in the process of being restored, full of history, sculptures and tombs. Do not miss.
