This is well worth a visit. It is not as gilded or fancy as the one in Florence, but it is quite remarkable, and the baptismal font is beautiful. Definitely go up onto the upper level for a full sense of the amazing space of the Baptistry. If you can, stick around for one of the frequent tours that pass... More

The Tower is the headline but the Baptistry is the star. What a building. What architecture and colour. A quiet contemplative space after the hubbub of the Piazza !

There’s not much to this, we spent maybe 15 minutes inside, and that included going up to the second level. Every thirty minutes an attendant demonstrates the acoustics, which was interesting to hear. If you’re in the area to climb the tower, it’s worthy a pop-in, but do not come just for this.

After the stunning architecture of the Duomo , we were a little disappointed as there did not seem much to admire or marvel at. You have to pay and get a ticket to visit whilst the Duomo is free and is much more impressive

This was a touching place. We enjoyed the walk up to the second and received a special treat when we arrived. A gentleman came and sang a song that echoed thru the room. It was a wonderful experience.

The baptistry had been described to me as beautiful but the external is actually the most beautiful thing about it. The baptistry of Il Duomo in Florence is a much more beautiful and spiritual place to visit.

This is a beautiful building with a fairly simple interior. Pick up a guide book that can explain the art inside to you. Make sure you visit on the hour or half hour when a guard will come to the center of the baptistry and demonstrate the amazing acoustics. Our guard was able to make 3 part harmony with herself...

This is a place where they baptise you. It is huge and with lots of carvings to see. Near the church and the cemetery. First thing you see, as you enter the area.
