“lovely”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

The Baptistry was lovely, but we had the audio guide and were a bit confused about what we were supposed to be looking at. If you only have time for 2 things, see the cathedral and museum and skip this. But if you have time, it's worth a look.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Many tourists might just visit the duomo and miss the baptistery. This would be a mistake! Not only is it less crowded...it is gorgeous! Something unique...mirrors to reflect the artwork so your neck can take a break!

“Just a Quick Visit”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This was a very neat little one room quick stop filled with incredible art, frescoes, sculpture and floor mosaics. But take your time and take it all in. For the small amount of time it will take it is very much worth it.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Part of an all inclusive ticket and we are happy we did it. From the cheery chap that checked our ticket to the wonderful paintings it was a visit that was worthwhile.
