A quiet place

An ancient cemetery with some history behind it. But there was little information provided with boards or audio guides. A good place to visit nevertheless.

My wife and I were moved by this gravesite built as a abbey shaped building with tombs laid in the floors with elaborate stones over a 1000 year span. The large frescos on the walls are in a state of repair( damaged in WWW 2 ). The ones finished are beautiful and elaborate! It truly is a place to spend... More

The building is a great place to visit. However, make sure that you have the internet or a guidebook to hand as there is zero information displayed. You can pay to listed to comments at a phone by the entrance, but that is it! A simple handout to be returned on leaving would do it.

Absolutely loved visiting this site as the crowds outside bustled to take photos of the tower and wander around the Piazza. The frescoes within Camposanto are breathtaking and really worth seeing. I was struck by how quiet this site was and how lucky we were to have an almost private viewing of the artwork.

Pisa is all about the tower, but this stunning building is well worth the time! It's peaceful and tranquil, almost everything the tower isn't. The walls are decorated with beautiful murals and frescos that are currently being restored to their previous glories. Spend the time, walk slowly, this is a place to absorb the history, even if can't speak Latin!... More

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.
