In your fervor to pretend to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, don't by-pass Camposanto. Quiet and beautiful, this courtyard is filled with frescos and sculpted funeral biers. The history in the building is incredible, as it was partially destroyed in WWII. You can see some of the frescos being restored in one of the rooms off the courtyard.

This was a real find. Located beside the leaning tower etc this is an oasis of calm. It houses remains & graves of saints & popes with original frescoes & artefacts. We sat for a long time just soaking up tha atmosphere. Loved it.

If you need to get away from the crowds and sun, seek your calm and peace here. The sculptures here are easily competing with the ones in Uffizi in Florence and you will have time to reflect. Frescos are the biggest ones found in Pisa & Florence. They tell the stories of the times before Pisa surrenderd to Medici family... More

We visited this at pisa, since ive wanted to see what's inside behind those walls... Through combined ticket from the other monuments (battistero,cathedrale and museo), you'll get to enter and see what's inside... There is nothing much to see (what you'll expect?), tombs and the remains of the history... There is a beautiful landscape.. If you get to visit Pisa,... More

This building contains fragments of frescoes painted in the 14th and 15th centuries. Unfortunately they were almost completely destroyed by bombs in the second world war. There is enough left to give an idea of how amazing this building must have looked.

Make sure you take time to appreciate the Camposanto when at the Fields of Miracles. Its easy to get too focused on the Tower and Baptistry. But this place is well worth spending time to enjoy and reflect on. More often than not less busy with tourists than its near neighbours, you get the chance to enjoy its beauty and... More

It is a beautiful and peaceful place with great sculptures, sarcophagi and beautiful frescoes. Definitely worth a visit when you are at Piazza dei Miracoli.

Since you're already on Piazza dei Miracoli, why not visit all the sights there. Il Camposanto is a beautiful and peaceful cemetary ending the quartet of sights on Piazza dei Miracoli. I recommend buying one of the detailed guides of Pisa, as there is an interesting story behind every gravestone in Camposanto.

A quiet location compared to the rest of the complex. Beautiful frescoes and religious objects. Great place just to contemplate the architecture and take a break from the madness of the Piazza.
