Please climb the stairs to the upper level!

The tower is great and a must see, but the Duomo and Battistero are the hidden gems. Take the time see both, it's worth it.

With such a beautiful façade I was expecting an extraordinary interior. However I was completely disappointed with it.

A baptistry - but not just your average church font! This building is 100% baptistry - nothing else. Massive font with full immersion possible beneath an amazing dome. Which you can climb inside for great views over Pisa

Adored this building and spent a lot of my time photographing it together with the Leaning Tower. A must-see, particularly if you have an interest in the spectacular details of its breathtaking architecture/design.

This building might not be on the tip of everyone's tongues when thinking of Pisa, but is absolutely amazing. Walking into it, you cannot fail to be amazed by the scale of the dome. The acoustics inside are incredible, perhaps you'll be fortunate enough to hear some chanting or singing during your visit. Being able to walk around such an... More

When I climbed the stairs to the balcony of the Baptistery I was the only one in this marvelous place besides two chit-chatting guards. Therefore, I disregarded the signage and broke into song, imagining that the acoustics would be amazing. I was not disappointed so the tourists who'd entered after me got a couple "dona nobis pacems" out of me.... More

Our small group of cruise ship passengers has been herded to Italy’s largest Baptistery (Battistero di San Giovanni) in Pisa. We are told construction began in the Romanesque style under Diotisalvi in 1153. Nicola and Giovanni Pisano gave the upper part a Gothic transformation between 1277 and 1297 and Cellino di Nese added the Gothic dome in the 1300s. It... More
