“Another beautiful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

This was such a lovely ornate building but don't overlook it when visiting the Cathedral. Fabulous font by Donatello, Ghiberti and Jacopo della Querica. Lovely paintings on walls

Part of the ticket for the Cathedral, do visit the Baptistry (entrance at the back). Beautifully decorated, with interesting details.
