On the outside, this is not a terribly impressive building to look at, but inside it is amazing. The walls are covered with beautiful frescos, some in better shape than others, but all amazing. Be sure to check out the fresco of the mediaeval cosmos in one corner of the building, as well as the Dante-esque afterlife frescos. There are... More

I think we spent 20 minutes walking around this, and that included getting stuck and back tracking because they were working on a section and we couldn’t get to the exit. Not much to see. I don’t think I took any pictures.

When you read in the guidebooks it sounds great but it is not well presented. You keep looking for the relics, there is an earth from Golgotha here , plenty of old sarcophagus and paintings on the wall, maybe even famous people buried but you have difficulties in finding it and learning about it. Missed opportunity.It is an unusual cemetery... More

This is a beautiful cemetery that could be easily overlooked, but if you buy a ticket for the tower you can also include a visit to this little cemetery. It has a lovely, peaceful courtyard. Many of the frescoes were damaged during World War II. There isn't much information available once you get inside, but if you're at the Field... More

This building looks like a library or an accounting office. But in fact its a cemetery. Not sure if everybody would like to see it.

This is a huge walled and covered cemetery that also has some frescoes and statues that have survived fires and WW II bombing. I found the tombs fascinating and haven't seen another cemetery like this. If you take the time to come and see the Leaning Tower you should also take the time to see this.

When I last visited about 3 years ago, I did not have to pay to visit this site - and from what I remember of it, it did not warrant a fee.

The frescoes have undergone some restoration and are amazing to see. The tombs are fascinating. You get some interesting views of the cathedral and the tower through the openings in the courtyard. Be sure to visit the museum exhibit as well to learn more about the restoration.

Much of the frescoes on the walls are missing or heavily damaged. There are a number of statues from tombs present which are worth seeing and it is a quieter place compared to the other attractions. Overall worth visiting.
