Everyone goes to see the Baptistery, Duomo, and the Leaning Tower, but just wander a bit further along to see the Campo Santo, the beautifully restored monumental cemetery. Campo Santo takes its name from “Holy Field” as it is said to have been built around...More

The "camposanto" is actually a monumental cemetery, with dozen of roman sarcophagus , frescos , statues and marbles. It really worth a visit when you visit piazza dei miracoli, where the leaning tower is. BUT the visit to the Camposanto was discouraging : there was...More

Camposanto is another one of the must see to do items when in Pisa. Worth it to spend about an hour or so as you knock off items in that city.

Again one of the many places you can see in the Piazza del Duomo. This beautiful area should not be missed!

Saw it as a part of the entire Pisa ground which has all the structures. This is beautifully done. This is the burial ground and deserves its reverence and quiet. Nice place to walk around.

Peaceful compared to the mobs outside esp. around the tower and church/cathedral. Great looking at the memorials, thoughts, aspirations, and thoughts in stone of the people who buried their loved ones in this ground.

This burial area for the people of Pisa is beautiful and interesting. The courtyard is very pretty and the buildings that surround it are full of interesting burial monuments and frescoes. Many of the frescoes are no longer visible, but some are very impressive.

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

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... More
