  • I think the glance of piazza Duomo is one of the most evocative of Italy but the grandeur and the octagonal Baptistery of pink marble is the result of the junction between Romanesque architecture and Gothic architecture ... ... a very special atmosphere ... ... ... ... the inside then you exceed with the explosion of the genius of the Antelami ... ... the cycle of the months and the seasons are unique ... ... ... not to be missed!

  • One of Italy's finest Baptistery. Here the sacred and the profane blend in high relief that trace the succession of the cosmic cycle and the seasons while alternate with scenes of sacred episodes more or less known. A place definitely worth visiting.

  • Nice baptistery filled with historical paintings. Make sure you spend some time to look around because your ticket is only good for one entrance.
  • It isn't as impressive as other duomos we have seen but still worth to take a look if you are in the city.
  • The pink baptistery is quite unique! The entrance fee is a bit steep though
  • A Masterpiece! It has to be visited
  • Bombass Bapistery
