the Baptismal Font is awe inspiring one of the most memorable is the tableau showing St John the baptists head being presented to the emperor shows the horror that he must have felt, the depictions on the roof of heaven and hell are very graphic keep an eye out for the mirrors on the seats which allow you to see the detail in the roof without getting a crick in the neck.

Situated behind the Duomo, the baptistry is yet another work of art....beautiful frescos and sculpture, with good explanations of all the artwork on the i-pad guide.
Worth a visit!

Add to the enjoyment of your visit by seeing the Baptistry. It is covered with ornamental details and beautiful frescos. Look down as well, the baptismal font area is raised up a step from the entrance area and we saw several people trip or almost fall as the step appears to be camouflaged from easy view.

We went in here (at the back of the cathedral) because we had an all in one ticket. After the Duomo, I was not impressed so only stayed a few minutes.
