The Baptistery is in front of the Cathedral. It’s easy to recognize because of the colored dome. When talking inside the acoustics are amazing. This was just a place to get baptized so not much decorating but the architecture and bronze sculpture of St. John...More

The Battistero is just an amazing place and the ticket costing to enter is 5 € and inside the architecture is very beautiful.

This building is on the square of the tower and the duomo, so it's just an amazing place to visit and to relax. Behind the Battistero you can see the old city walls, it's another amazing view from there. The building itself is very detailed,...More

The baptistery was interesting to see inside with all of its arches, dome, ornaments, pulpits, and stained glass windows as well as the font. Worth a look while you are there.

We were really lucky - as we entered the staff closed the door and conducted a sound demo. Hearing the sound reflected back was just amazing.

Having visited many baptisteries we were debating whether to see this one. Am I ever glad we did. Its interior is simple and beautiful. The acoustics have to be experienced to be appreciated. Very well worth a visit.

this is a great visit, esp if you can't wait to go up the tower. Climb the steps inside for great views in and outside.

...but inside, well, boring. Nothing really to see, and all these places have those electronic video displays telling the story for €2.00, sorry, no thanks. The outside is a hundred times more interesting.

I would say leave a good couple of hours to explore the Piazza del Miracoli. The Tower can get busy. If you can get there around 9am it is much quieter. Camposanto is charming and I spent about 20 minutes here. I spent... More
