A visit to the Camposanto is definitely recommended for any visitor to Pisa. In terms of things to see, there isn't much, but in terms of taking in the history of the place, it's incredible. The legend is that the Camposanto was built around a shipload of soil from Christ's crucifixion site at Golgotha. Whether this is true or not,... More

We paid for entrance to three of the attractions here and have to say we were not disappointed. The hell fresco is quite eerie and I couldn't bring myself to photograph it! The building is stunning and does not feel crowded at any time. Well worth a visit.

The Hell Fresco is amazing. It took me a few moments to realize what I was seeing when I was there: Satan chewing up sinners, digesting them, and then pooping them into hell!

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.
