This was very interesting and I found it very peaceful. The work to restore the walls and murals after the war is particularly clever

A little bit out of the main part of Piazza del Duomo, but definately worth visiting. It's peaceful and quiet in here, definately less people than in front of the Leaning Tower. Beautiful paintings all aroung and watch your step - you are standing on someones tomb. It's interesting to see a movie about restoration of Camposanto after the second... More

It was interesting to find out that a majority of the building was bombed during world war 2 and most of the frescoes have been destroyed. I appreciated even more that the building has now been restored (including the roof) and the documentary being played in one of the halls is a reminder of the effects of wars. On a... More

We visited this site because it was a part of our ticket to other sites in the area. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the statues and other structures and the frescoes were impressive. My children enjoyed watching the video on the fresco restoration process despite the fact that the video was very old and of poor quality... More

I tend to think that people overlook this - and they shouldn't. It's far more interesting, in my mind, than any other part of Piazza dei Miracoli. The tombs, decoration, history are all here just for the observation and the learning. Probably my favorite attraction of the big ones right in this area of Pisa.

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.
