Once you've taken all your pictures outside then there's more gob-smacking sights on the inside. Stained glass, the intricasies of the dome and of course the Bococelli. Keep a look out for a very rare painting by Chalangio.

A visit to this small museum was a highlight of our recent visit. It is a manageable size containing outstanding pieces beautifully displayed. The highlight has to be the wonderfully restored "Gates of Paradise" (it is worth reading the story of their removal, restoration and placement in the museum) but the so called "Singing Galleries" are also breathtaking. The technically minded will be fascinated with the details of the design and building of the cathedral dome.
It was not easy to find the museum in its temporary site behind the Duomo but well worth the effort.

This museum contains a collection of important artefacts pertaining to the history of Pisa. There are signs in English and a series of arrows give a good indication of where to go. There is a lift for physically handicapped.

This museum is small and has some things that are clearly not 5 star. But, if you know what to look for before, it is 5 star for the amount of time that it takes. You really need to see the other Pieta made by Michelangelo as he was aging and losing his skills. He actually attacked it with a hammer out of frustration with himself. The emotion in it is touching. Then there's John the Baptist's finger and there is a mosaic that has to be seen with a magnifying glass to see that it's a mosaic. Don't spend a lot of time here, but don't miss the gems.
