Its the cruelty of war to see what WWII did to this building. It can only be imagined its grandeur prior to that. That said, the restorers have done a fantastic job to bring the building and many of its frescoes back to life.

An amazingly intense way of appreciating Pisa is a guided walking tour. We took a 3 hour one by very competent Ms Silvia of citygrandtour.it and she brought our attention to so many gems we would have not noticed .One of them is a beautiful series of frescos on the ceilings of the H&M building (yes you got that,H&Mstore) and...

Most people pass this by as it is mainly a cemetery, but if you have the time and want to spend some extra euros to take in the whole site, it is quite interesting.

Behind the great white wall at Miracle Square you'll find an oasis of peace. The Camposanto is the burialground where you will find a statue of Fibonacci, the great pisan mathematician; wonderful large frescoes depicting the history of Pisa; the citychains that the Genovese gave to Pisa's archenemy Florence, which they gave back 500 years later; a wonderful delicate cloister...

This is an old cememtery, euro duomo style. This was the main attraction before the tower hype - see it with the combo tix.

While visiting the leaning tower of Pisa we stopped by and had a stroll through here . A pleasant change of atmosphere from the hustle and bustle near by , it was a very quiet , relaxing break and well worth a visit .

Beautiful, quite and the attraction tells a story as you walk through. There are not many people that visit here as they are usually all at the Leaning Tower which makes this attraction a lot less "touristy". Would definitely recommend taking a walk through here.

This burial ground has some interesting final resting places and frescos undergoing restoration. Not many visit here and it maybe the cost - charging a further fee after the tower cost (which is steep by European/Italian standards) is probably the reason. If short on time and/or money leave this one out - you won't miss a lot

Deite being next to the leaning tower this beautiful cloistered burial ground does not get very many visitors which is a shame. It's a beautiful building. There are superb frescos on the wall which are slowly ( very, very slowly!) being restored. The best of them ha a room of its own with a detailed explanation on the wall and... More

Beautiful Frescoes, some interesting roman & etruscian sarcophags and sculpture. Can visit seperately (10 euros) or combined with Battistero's visit (same price seperately) for 7 euros both
