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

We visited the Composanto along with the Leaning Tower. Composano is a mausoleum for notable Pisa figures. I was surprised to see recent burials (2009) as well as historic ones. There are many finely sculpted shrines and sarcophagi. The open building also contains giant fresco paintings, some of which have been restored. The architecture and grounds are stunning. Worth a...

The Campo was largely destroyed during WWII. But the existing building still has the beautiful arches, still has the interesting graves and there is a fascinating exhibit about the rebuild. There are only fragments, sadly, of the frescoes that once were an artistic wonder. You can still see what they might have been. And surely there is more than enough... More

This building is sitatued adjacent to the Duomo and can be included in your day ticket. Work continues to renovate the building, I would avoid using the word restore because that it not the intention. However the buiding was all but destroyed during the war and treasures lost. Never the lest, much remains and is worth a visit.

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...
