Great looking at the memorials, thoughts, aspirations, and thoughts in stone of the people who buried their loved ones in this ground.

If you want to escape the crowds around the other parts of the square, visit the Camposanto. There is some lovely architecture to look at, along with some amazing wall paintings. The green space in the centre simply adds to the tranquility. There were only...More
did not know what to expect in the Camposanto, but what a surprise when we went through the doorway. A beautiful cloistered building around a perfect green. The hushed atmosphere felt so special. We discovered this is the cemetery and spent a long while trying...More

Hi there. You will need a full morning (3-4 hours) to get around depending on volume of tourists. Our advice is to catch the local bus to get there and get an early booking. Don't forget to see this wonder when floodlit in an evening. It's something to behold and normally peaceful. Enjoy yourselves.
