Pisa Baptistry

The magnificent dome of the Baptistery is almost 180 feet high and nearly 350 feet across.

It is an acoustic wonder; an unamplified choir can be heard 12 miles away. It’s the largest baptistery in Italy, and is built entirely of marble on the same sandy soil as the Tower – you might be able to detect the slight lean towards the cathedral. The pulpit, carved by Nicola Pisano, is considered an excellent example of Renaissance art.
