“Not much in there but wow!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Every half hour there is an echo demonstration, don't miss it, fabulous. As I said, the only thing in there is the font but look around up on the balcony and see the ceiling at close quarters.

“Nice”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Kind of reminds me of the Battistero in front of the Florence Duomo except this one os round without the edges sans the famous door; although this has a demonstrator of the echo possible from the dome structure.

“Echo...echo...echo”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is a white marble haven away from the crowds at the tower and the huge tour groups in the Duomo. Every half an hour, they demonstrate the 'echo effect'. Well worth hanging around for, one of the most extraordinary experiences

“Beautiful building”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Built in the 12th century - I have a soft spot for old buildings, don't expect walls of art work as it is quite "plain" inside, but then take some time to look at the scenes around the pulpit.


Also wander upstairs and take in the grander of this place, remembering is was built in the 12th century!
