Stunning architecture outside & inside a more simpler style awaits you but equally as good. The pulpit is lovely & was done by Niccola Pissaro who has a statue dedicated to him in the city. Viewed from the upper floor you get a real sense of the size. Some of the stain glass windows need repaired though. While we were... More

This was my first visit to a baptistary, a place specifically built for baptism. Make sure you record the echoes when every once in a while they close the door and sing for a minute to the reflections of the dome.

My friend and I arranged a walking tour of Pisa which included the entrance to the baptiste, cathedral and Leaning Tower. So interesting to learn the history and understand the culture at that time. We also got to climb the Tower whic was a great experience. The dome in the Baptiste has the most amazing Acoustics.

Its Pisa. All in one campus - The Leaning Tower ( to go inside , ticket to be paid) and the Battistero and Museum ( Ticket to be paid) . Very excited to be there to watch Leaning tower. Please get down at Pisa San Rossore railway station and just walk to reach Battistero.

Beautiful architecture. Go early to avoid crowds & before the afternoon heat. Watch your belongings as loads of pickpockets about the area.

It was one of the beautiful structures here in pisa. If you want to go inside, you must first buy your tickets. Combined tickets are much cheaper, since 1 monument will cost you 5€... Combined tickets cost 8€ wherein you get to visit battistero, camposanto, the cathedral and il museo delle sinopie...

One of the three main parts of the Piazza dei Miracoli. it is an impressive space in which to get baptised. It is cool inside and a welcome change from the heat outside. We waited for the acoustics demonstration which happens every 30 minutes; members of staff sang, giving a glimpse into medieval religious events. Magical

The Tower, the Baptistry, the Fields of Miracles all in the one place, all in the one photograph, all to be enjoyed and inspired by in the one visit.
