This was an added bonus when visiting the leaning tower of Pisa.I had been unaware of the surrounding classical structures before I went to Pisa. The surrounding buildings are just as beautiful.

Massive baptistery, singing allowed us to appreciate the fantastic sound inside. Great views from the higher floors, and a cheaper and easier climb than the tower!

Be sure to tour this part of the complex. The highlight is the exterior though. Typical kind of cold empty interior. Good photos of the cathedral from the upper floor of the baptistry though. Make the climb.

With all the attention on the Tower of Pisa, this attraction was easy to access and navigate. It's architecture is awe inspiring. The attention to detail just incredible. Don't miss it.

Charming Baptistry constructed of marble in 12AC. The lower section of construction is reach of the Romanesque style, with rounded arches, while the upper sections are in the Gothic style, with pointed arches.
