Again don't advertise but free entry for disabled and career on proof of disability .photo of PIP was sufficient . Short climbed to top limited views from small windows but one has a good view of cathedral and tower .

The exterior is stunning, i would not bother to go in. Its very boring and there is little to no design. The view of the cathedral is okay, but you cannot see the tower. Enjoy the sunseting behind it also!

The Baptistry is just that - the building devoted to Catholic baptisms. Galileo was baptised here. You can climb the stairs to the upper level for a good view (the building is not large). Stay for the echo test to hear the marvellous acoustics, but...More

Most visitors are drawn to the famous Leaning Tower and the cathedral but the Baptistry is well worth a visit. For the best view, climb the internal stone staircase to the viewing gallery and look down on the altar, font and pulpit. There are also...More

On the same piazza as the leaning tower of Pisa and the stunning Duomo. Definitely worth seeing as well. Has really sound effects inside too!

Well worth going into alongside the more famous tower (the campanile), but it leans the other way. Go in on the half hour and hear one of the docents sing their own accompaniment using the stupendous acoustics of this building, where the echoes form the...More

This is a very interesting place- not overly ornate but still very beautiful in a simpler way. You can go up some steps to view from the upper gallery.The guide demonstrated the wonderful acoustics by giving a short singing performance!

This beautiful baptistery was built not only for baptisms (during a time when one could not enter a cathedral until they were baptized) but also with such lovely acoustics that it's certain there was intention for musical performances of some kind. Each hour on the...More

Try and catch the singing - wonderful acoustics. Calm atmosphere inside. Exquisite carvings and interesting history.

This is the largest baptistery in Italy, almost 55m high, with a diameter of 34m. It is an example of the transition from Romanesque to the Gothic style architecture. Visitors can look around inside and out and can view the building from the upper level....More

How long does it take to walk around the battistero? I just need to plan my timing to book the train ticket back to florence. I am planning to see the leaning tower, the baptistry and the camposanto. Any idea how long it will probably take to cover these three places?

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
