This was a great way to escape the sun and the crowds. There are many ancient sarcophagi, but the 4th century BC Greek Stele was amazing. We were able to get up close to all the statues, the stele, and the sarcophagi and really examine them. There is also a pavement slab dedicated to Deane Keller, one of the "Monuments... More

We escaped the crowds and the heat to wander around this beautiful building. It is so peaceful and the frescoes and statues are stunning.

There are a number of reasons for visiting this site. The first is the interesting exhibition re the restoration of the frescoes and "The Triumph of Death" itself. The second is the graves themselves, not all of which are hundreds of years old, some are from 21st century. Next up is the chapel containing the relics. A quite gruesome assortment... More

Everyone goes to see the Baptistery, Duomo, and the Leaning Tower, but just wander a bit further along to see the Campo Santo, the beautifully restored monumental cemetery. Campo Santo takes its name from “Holy Field” as it is said to have been built around the sacred soil brought from the Fourth Crusade in Golgotha in the 12th century. It... More

When you see the before photos of what was left after WW2 - I challenge anyone not to be moved to tears at the level of destruction and commitment to rebuilding. This is brilliant. But the additional ticket and visit this place (as an added bonus - there are loads of relics in the small chapel - bones of 11/12... More

This large building surrounds a cemetery. There are tombs under the walkway, frescoes on the walls and a lot of ornately carved sarcophagi lining the perimeter. Compared to the rest of the field of miracles we found this area to be very quiet and serene with very few visitors. The manicured lawn with flowers was really pretty and we took... More

We just visited on a 45 minute cruise tour (see Field of Miracles review for best time management if that is your tour). This site like all the others is amazing. However, one of the attractions to this site is the tranquility. When we visited, there were thousands of people in the field of Miracles,but our family of 4 was... More
