When I last visited about 3 years ago, I did not have to pay to visit this site - and from what I remember of it, it did not warrant a fee.

The frescoes have undergone some restoration and are amazing to see. The tombs are fascinating. You get some interesting views of the cathedral and the tower through the openings in the courtyard. Be sure to visit the museum exhibit as well to learn more about the restoration.

Much of the frescoes on the walls are missing or heavily damaged. There are a number of statues from tombs present which are worth seeing and it is a quieter place compared to the other attractions. Overall worth visiting.

This was probably one of the most humbling places we visited, had tombs from the 13th century until 40 years ago I was with my granddaughter of 11 yeears old and we spent more time in here than anywhere else, fantastic on a nice sunny day but no more spoilers

The entrance to Camposanto was included in the ticket I bought to visit the Leaning Tower and the Baptistery. It is a very quiet place full of beatiful and historical graves but not as interesting as expected

A visit to the Camposanto is definitely recommended for any visitor to Pisa. In terms of things to see, there isn't much, but in terms of taking in the history of the place, it's incredible. The legend is that the Camposanto was built around a shipload of soil from Christ's crucifixion site at Golgotha. Whether this is true or not,... More

We paid for entrance to three of the attractions here and have to say we were not disappointed. The hell fresco is quite eerie and I couldn't bring myself to photograph it! The building is stunning and does not feel crowded at any time. Well worth a visit.

The Hell Fresco is amazing. It took me a few moments to realize what I was seeing when I was there: Satan chewing up sinners, digesting them, and then pooping them into hell!

Camposanto was constructed in 1277. You have to purchase either one, two or three monument tickets to get into the Cathedral, Baptistery, Camposanto or Leaning Tower. We purchased the one monument ticket which got us into Camposanto plus the Cathedral. Cannot get into the Cathedral without purchasing a monument ticket. Camposanto has interesting frescoes, but many have been lost over... More
