“Beautiful Baptistery, with Chorus Echo Sound !”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

It is a very beautiful Baptistery near to more famous Leaning tower of PISA, in "The Miracle Square"..Through its beautiful & magnificant structure, this Baptistery manage to hold its own place, next to more known & more world famous Leaning tower of PISA.
1. Suggest you must visit this place by buying ticket of it . Euro 2.
2. Inside they play very soothing prayer song every 30 mnts. Though the song is sung by an individual, if you close your eyes, you will feel as if multiple people are singing together. Its an amazing experience.
3. Take a guide to understand it better as how it was open at top once-upon a time, and how running rainy water was used to Baptise young children...And mnay more facts & figures.!!

“Free views of the Duomo & tower”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Glad we took the time to climb up to the upper level for great views of the interior and also of the surrounding buildings and the opportunity to photograph them, much better than paying the high price or the vies from the tower. Beautiful, huge and highly decorated font. The 4 x entry ticket for 9 euros allows you to fully get a feel and understanding of the main buildings and gain an excellent insight into their history and art works. The Composanto and Museo offer tranquility away for the crowds of tourists.

“Don't miss the echo..... echo!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

We booked a guided tour (at an extra 2 euros) to both the Duomo and the Baptistry. REALLY good value. The guide brought the whole place to life. Don't miss the demonstration of the echo which seems to take place every 30 minutes - and the good view of the front of the Duomo from the gallery.

“My favorite battistero in Italy”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Saw this, Fierenze and Siena's. This was THE most outstanding. With a multi-visit ticket to it, the Duomo etc. even the kids we had in hand enjoyed seeing all the sites.

“Amazing outside - a bit disappointing inside”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

It's really impressive on the outside, an amazing component of the whole assemble (together with the tower and the cathedral).
However, interior did not astonished me. Paid 5EUR for the visit and had regrets it afterwards. It's quite simple, not much to see. The most interesting thing was acoustics-the echo is really strong.
