  • In the comparison of the Cathedral (and I recommend you check them out because the most beautiful thing) ... the baptistery and ... a small place. Nothing "not seen" anyway to take away the curiosity and "see" ... Visit no longer than 5 minutes

  • The Baptistry is the next part of the Dome complex and the strangest thing on it is that thanks to the hills is actually under the Cathedral and are, therefore, the support element. The Baptistry is beautifully decorated and is worth a look to it. But I recommend to do it in the framework of the joint ticket for 1 euro, which is valid for 3 days and under it you can see not only the Cathedral with the Libreria Piccolomini, but even the crypt, the Baptistry and the Museum with the beautiful view of the city. A separate purchase of the ticket and tour only inside I do not recommend.

  • The baptistery is located behind the Cathedral, richly equipped and elegantly decorated. We liked us stop for a moment of calm...

  • You can pay for an individual ticket to the Baptistry, but I suggest that you buy a combined ticket!
  • It is located under the final spans of the choir of the city's cathedral, and bridges the difference in height with the square below. The façade, in Gothic style with the typical pattern of local marbles
  • Overwhelmingly beautiful.
  • Beautiful place with many artifacts to be seen!
  • כנסייה גותית ומיוחדת, יש ציורים על הרצפה ושימו לב בתקרה על פסלי הראשים מסתבר שהם של כל האפיפיורים מהראשון ועד המאה ה 12
