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

The frescoes in the Camposanto are currently being restored after damage in World War II. Beautiful historic place without the crowds seeing the tower. Tickets available from a small office to the left and behind the tower. Worth a visit if you enjoy history. Read about it before you go.

This was the burial zone for wealthy Pisans as the Renaissance was underway. The statuary is lifelike - you think you can speak to some of these figures. A lot of Roman influence, but many in the clothing and style of that day. While more murals are being restored, what exists and remains on the walls are miraculous. A bit... More

I was a little surprised by this visit. After all if is basically a cemetery, an old one, bu a cemetery. The artwork on the tombs and the frescos on the wall are well worth a look. So of the statues are just beautiful.

This is a cemetry and was established to keep Roman sarcophagi. They still exist on the premises and many other things to see inside.

While in Pisa... we had a look round (but not inside) while at the Tower. Great place to have seen while in the area.

I knew nothing of this jewel before coming to Pisa. Can't help but feel that the unfortunate geometry of the tower (after 800 years though) has historically overshadowed the wealth of this incredible area. We first went to the Museo delle Sinopie which was fascinating. The gallery has a beautifully designed contemporary renovation housing the reconstructed works from the Camposanto.... More

This is one of the buildings on the Piazza dei Miracoli around the cathedral and Leaning Tower of Pizza. It is a cemetery. The graves are in the floor of the building and there are several Roman sarcophagi. There are graves going back hundreds of years and some we saw were as recent as the 1990s. There may be more...
