Overview

The Baptistery of San Giovanni was founded on 15 August 1152. It is here that the Sacrament of Baptism is administered and the Christian embarks upon the path of Faith. The reason that such a fascinating and enigmatic building was constructed was certainly the wish to endow the cathedral with a worthy adjunct: a Baptistery that, in terms of position, size, materials and style, would be in harmony with the majestic building that already stood opposite.

The baptistry is part of a complex including a cathedral and bell tower, the latter better known as the leaning tower of Pisa. It's a lovely building with some great history. We had a tour guide with us who gave us lots of fantastic background....More

All 3 must-sees, Leaning Tower, Cathedral and Baptistry are within easy reach of each other, all within about a 2 block area. Baptistry is beautiful outside and currently undergoing some renovations. Inside the construction allows for wonderful echoes. We happened to be there when one...More

Get there as soon as it opens to experience it empty and quiet. Good views from the gallery. Good echoes!

We entered by chance and it’s really beautiful. Everybody goes to pisa in order to see the tower but the surrounding is more beautiful.

We visited the Battistero during our trip to Pisa, at first sight it fits in well with the surrounding monuments. But when you get inside there appears to be little to see. If you look closer you will notice intricate details everywhere and the stained...More

The baptistry was my least favourite out of the monuments in Pisa. The feeling I got whilst I was inside was just a bit naff. It was a little disappointing compared to the other monuments I went inside at pisa. There are some nice stained...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
