When I arrived to see the tower, I was surprised to see the other attractions that were available with my ticket. The building is amazing to see from the outside and beautiful inside. The views from the 2nd floor across the Duomo were awesome.

Came as part of a visit to the leaning tower and had no idea there was so much else here to see. Really beautiful and amazing to think how it was built so long ago. Beautiful building and you are silent in there which adds...More

You can enter the Battistero and then after visiting the first floor you can climb uostairs from where, at a window you'll have a great view over the duomo and the leaning tower.

I was not able to visit this attraction due to the limited time our tour had at Pisa. They limited us to 2 hours which seems like a lot of time, but if you are climbing the Leaning Tower, which I was, you have to...More

It is nice to go and visit it but there is not very much to see really. But definitely if visiting Pisa and passionate about art, you can’t miss it.

This building has interesting sculptures around the entire building. Lots of space fenced off so that you can get good photos without a lot of people in the way. Everyone knows that the tower leans but this building does also. The other thing is that...More

Walking around the outside to and from the Tower, it was beautiful from a distance which was an unexpected surprise to all of us because they have big grass areas that are off limits and makes for great photos. Tickets for inside were too expensive

It's easy to miss the beauty of this because of its proximity to the Leaning Tower but it really is stunning, particularly in early evening as the light fades. In well kept gardens there is a little market and very good cafe nearby, try and...More

The lady guide sang for us in the building and it was glorious, no microphone could come close to the amplification of her voice, travelling to Pisa for day trip from Florence was a great idea. Only takes little over an hour, by car and...More

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
