“Cool cemetary!! Nice place to rest in peace!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

It was like an enormous halls with tombs everywhere, on the floor and on the walls, sculptures, statues, etc...but everything was built in great big sizes and in marble or stones and all white so it was not scary to stroll through and enjoy being in a cemetery.

“An absolute must!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you go to only one place in the Piazza dei Miracoli, then go to Camposanto. From the outside it is simply a white wall but inside it is a beautiful building with a fascinating history.

“Real flavour of Italy!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Well worth finding in the narrow streets of Pisa in the 'restaurant' district. Wide choice of menu and wine list.

“Echo”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a must for all tourists to PISA. If you do the baptistry make sure you stay to hear the "echo" when one of the guides calls up and the echol sounds all round the domed building - brillliant.

“Unusual cemetry”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Interesting, but former glories of the frescos and monuments worn down by time and war damage. Lots of information to study as you wander around.
