Overview

The Baptistery of San Giovanni was founded on 15 August 1152. It is here that the Sacrament of Baptism is administered and the Christian embarks upon the path of Faith. The reason that such a fascinating and enigmatic building was constructed was certainly the wish to endow the cathedral with a worthy adjunct: a Baptistery that, in terms of position, size, materials and style, would be in harmony with the majestic building that already stood opposite.

We paid 5 euros each to enter. Basically each site on the territory is 5 euros. With the ticket you can enter the Duomo. Religious art inside. Worth the wait for one of the attendants to sing several octave harmony. I read this is a...More

I didn't have any expectations but this was included in the ticket we bought and it was well worth the visit! Climb the stairs for a look from above and make sure to stay for one of the regular echo tests. Absolutely breathtaking listening to...More

This is an amazing building - it's hard to grasp that the builders had such a grasp of engineering that they were able to build something with such acoustics. There's a guy here who chants on the ground floor at regular times, and it can...More

A 14th century building constructed between 1100 to 1300's. Its is in the same complex between Pisa tower and the Cathedral. A combined tickets can be booked for the Battistero and the pisa tower.

I didn't go in as the line for tickets was really long and I didn't have the time, but just being on the grounds was worth it. It is a beautiful building and take the time if you can to walk all around it.

This in my opinion is better that the crooked tower but this is a slightly biased opinion as I really like the architecture on this Battistero. You can go inside but I wasn’t allowed as I had my suitcase but I wish I had able...More

This is a very interesting place of worship, with galleries overlooking city and tower , the price to get in for three museums is €8 , so it’s good value

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
