“Fabulous”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Very big, fairly bare, as baptistries are. The floors and altar are beautiful inlaid stonework. At 3 o'clock an official with a beautiful voice did a couple of minutes chanting which let us experience the fantastic accoustics. (I don't know if this is regular or if we were just lucky!)

“not really worth paying to enter”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The best part of the baptismal is the outside, the interior is pretty bare and not too exciting. It's better to see the one in Florence.

“Wait for the Acoustics Demostration”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Again, go with a guide that does the acoustics demonstration. It is really cool and about the only noise that they let you make inside the baptistery.

“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.
