Another amazing building. We visited on the hour when they close all the doors and a lady stands in the centre of the building and sings various notes creating a mystical echo that almost sounds like a choir. Absolutely stunning place.

If you come to see the Leaning Tower then you should also visit the other buildings around it. The Baptistery is small, but no less wonderful than the Tower, with some fantastic architecture.

We purchased the 8 euro ticket that includes entry to the Baptistry, Camposanto and Museo deile Sinopie. Inside it appears relatively sparse. A set of stone stairs to the left after you enter leads to the upper level. We did not count the number of steps but the structure appears to be at least 40 feet high so be prepared.... More

I would recommend getting one of the multi-site tickets for this, the cathedral and the mausoleum - excellent value for money.

Big baptism area and beautiful. From outside, looks like it is on an angle but maybe that's just my feeling. It is worth to visit.

The elongated Lemon of a shaped building is really rather splendid! Love the Pisano pulpit and the acoustics are amazing.It may seem plain compared to some more ornate baptisteries, but I love that - just a question of taste.

The Battistero is situated near to the leaning tower. You must pay to enter but you can buy a 3 building ticket for 8€. Inside the building there is an altar and then you can climb steps to get a better view outside. The outside is nicer than the inside to be honest. .

21.09.2015: We drove from Vaggio to Pisa. Lovely day to sight see. We parked some kms away. The walk was great as well seeing the other aspects of the town. Entering the square we come across the Torre di Pisa - looming along the skyline (bit like the Eiffel Tower in its time). Such lovely architecture and craftsmanship. we took... More

A great little building to go into. The architecture is just fantastic. So make sure you go in and don't just leave after seeing the leaning tower

Everyone looks at the mistake but this is so much more impressive. The coloured marble is so beautiful.
