Camposanto was constructed in 1277. You have to purchase either one, two or three monument tickets to get into the Cathedral, Baptistery, Camposanto or Leaning Tower. We purchased the one monument ticket which got us into Camposanto plus the Cathedral. Cannot get into the Cathedral without purchasing a monument ticket. Camposanto has interesting frescoes, but many have been lost over... More

Very interesting place to visit. Wasn't expecting for what I saw. This was worth visiting as it gave an invite to the rich history of Italy

Tombs, frescoes and a sacristy. We were here at midday on a sunny day and the light and shadows made for amazing photos. A quiet, reflective space away from the crowds. Highly recommended and very good value.

This building was beautiful. We didn't go inside because it was too expensive. We did walk arounbd and admire the architecture. Lots of people there the day we were there.

Everyone take a photo of the tower, a lot go into the cathedral, not so many visit the battistero, and almost no one decide to go into this amazing and beautiful place... roman sarcophagus reused in medieval times, huge frescoes from renaissance, and an unforgettable atmosphere. Don't leave Pisa without going inside this building!

If it is a hot day this is the building to go in to cool down, very high ceilings and lots of open space.

This building contains many monuments and statues and seems to currently being restored by the inclusion of copies of the original painted walls. It is a surprisingly large building enclosing a small garden. The full history is in the nearby museum. A relatively cheap entrance fee makes this an interesting building to visit.

An ancient cemetery with some history behind it. But there was little information provided with boards or audio guides. A good place to visit nevertheless.

My wife and I were moved by this gravesite built as a abbey shaped building with tombs laid in the floors with elaborate stones over a 1000 year span. The large frescos on the walls are in a state of repair( damaged in WWW 2 ). The ones finished are beautiful and elaborate! It truly is a place to spend... More

The building is a great place to visit. However, make sure that you have the internet or a guidebook to hand as there is zero information displayed. You can pay to listed to comments at a phone by the entrance, but that is it! A simple handout to be returned on leaving would do it.
