Calm quiet and worth a visit.

Wonderful tombs, sculptures and frescoes however no information boards so this makes it difficult to get much out of. The sarcophagi are incredible.

If you want some time to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Tower and its surroundings this is the place to go. Rectangular, collonaded, marble walkways - tombstones actually - memorials to the powerful and wealthy of Pisa and deceased popes. Central, lawned 'courtyards' offering peace and tranquillity with 'latticed' views of the cathedral and the baptistery... More

After having visited the 'stuccos' in Piazza dei Miracoli, Camposanto has the frescos being started from the 'stuccos'; it is still amazing that these pieces of art have come to our time from generation to generation and passing through peace times and triturated times.

The plain exterior does not hint at the treasures to be found inside. Much of the Camposanto was destroyed by bombing in 1944 and was restored in the 1970's. This is a cool, quiet sight taking one back to the 13th Century. Fascinating burial markers, sculptures, and statues. Lovely open, green center. The Camponsanto is the burial place of many... More

This is a nice place if you appreciate history and know who is buried there. On the internet you can find information about it or get a tour guide.

I'm not normally one to visit cemeteries, especially not on holiday, but Camposanto is really worth the visit. Cool and calm - it gets you away from the crowds. Lovely stonework and lots to see.

You can enter the cathedral for free on a timed ticket or go whenever you like if you buy a ticket for one of the other monumnets too so we had not planned to see anything else but were really glad we did. We chose (on the advice of one of the staff) the camposanto which is full of really... More

Beautiful ceiling art & floor tributes with many unique wall statues and comes part of the tourist package. Some of the ceiling & wall artwork is undergoing restoration but still plenty to see & admire.

A calm place to spend up to an hour. The recovered frescos are a great insight into how the locals appeared and dressed all those centuries ago. We could have done with a better guide, either written or audio(there wasn't one). I only managed to pick out Fibanachi, but probably missed lots of other interesting figures in history..
