Even on a cloudy, rainy day, it was a beautiful experience and part of the Pisa Tower scene. the contrast of the white marble and the ample greenery adds to its appeal.

The building has some fascinating friezes that are currently being renovated although there is still plenty that is visible. It could do with some explanations for what the items are but the sheer beauty of the sculptures and the fascinating grave stones make up for that. If you love proper marble sculptures then this is a must for you. Buy... More

As another reviewer mentioned, the "CampoSanto" is a cemetery of sorts. They are in the process of restoring the Frescos on the walls. The Frescos are super cool, but they really don't provide tourists with a lot of information on what they are looking at. There are some super neat statutes at one end. If you are going to the...

The "camposanto" is actually a monumental cemetery, with dozen of roman sarcophagus , frescos , statues and marbles. It really worth a visit when you visit piazza dei miracoli, where the leaning tower is. BUT the visit to the Camposanto was discouraging : there was no direction on how to visit the camposanto, no information, no map was given, no... More

We bought a combined ticket so not spend a lot of money on this visit, which you shouldn't. In five minutes you've seen it all. Huge renovation going on, so check if it's worth the money

A must visit when in Pisa. The frescoes, marble cloister & the roman sarcophagi - all are exquisite. This came as a total surprise. We know about the Tower of Pisa and had heard that the Baptistry and Duomo are beautiful, but this turned out to be our favourite after the tower climb.

Got the ticket pack and this was bonus. We went in a summer morning and there were few people inside. There is an amazing history: all the monuments and frescoes were destroyed by a bomb and after World War II restoration work began.

I bought the package ticket that included the Camposanto without any expectations. I thought I just wanted to have a quite walk along the oldest cemetery in Pisa. It was a very interesting walk. it was roofed, but still bright and airy. Then it got even more exciting when I found the Monument of Leonardo Fibonacci ( of the Fibonacci... More

This was seen only from the outside as part of a tour. There is a€5 charge to go inside. The building is really beautiful. Everything here is so clean.

When we went in there were maybe 5 other people in the entire place. So it was a welcome change from the massive crowd around the tower.
