The Campo Santo cemetery was constructed in the 13th and 14th C. That the frescoes have even survived is somewhat astonishing. But they are also very powerful and engaging. Relatively few of the tourist crowds come into the Campo Santo so you can enjoy the frescoes in relative peace. There are benches along the inner perimeter to sit on as... More

We purchased the 8 euro ticket that also included entry to the Baptistry, Camposanto and Museo deile Sinopie. Most people walked through the Camposanto relatively quickly since there were not many descriptions in English. Several of the frescoes were being restored. This site could be a must -see once all the restoration is complete but that would probably take many... More

It's a long rectangular building around a grassy central courtyard. A bit like cloisters. But the purpose is to be a burial ground for the great and good of Pisa. Local bigwigs chose to be buried here. Lots of professors from the university of Pisa. Bishops, deputy bishops, assistants to the deputy bishops - they are interred in the Camposanto.... More

This place is really amazing with really interesting features in the exterior and with amazing architecture. It is advisable to go even to the interior, but i had no time due to the fact that I was on a tour and thus I was tight with time.

We visited Pisa's Piazza dei Miracoli for the Leaning Tower but also bought tickets to visit the other buildings and I am so glad we did, as the Camposanto for us was the highlight of the day! It is a long rectangular building which surrounds a lawned courtyard and contains some amazing artworks. However, it's the grave lined floors and... More

Well, I must say I was more impressed than expected. The mausoleum delivers frescoes not-to-be-missed, great floors, some impressive objects and a shady hiding place from the crowds outside. With no effort whatsoever. Great value.

This is an ancient cemetary in the same square as the baptistry and leaning tower with lots of history and well worth a look.

This is all part of the leaning tower experience and also included in the ticket purchase to climb the tower. Basically it is a mausoleum, there are sarcophagus of priest and on the walls they are restoring the frescos that have been damaged over time. Very quiet place, very interesting to see the people that are buried here and still... More

Yes the place is famous for some typical ancient history and some adorable sculptures preserved. Also as a matter of fact is less crowded place being containing some historic information. And ofcourse you need to buy the ticket from the same place where you purchased for the leaning tower. The price is around 5 euros, but if you buy the... More
