  Baptistry

Except for the stupendous baptismal font and a beautiful pulpit, there isn't that much to see inside the Baptistry. You can go up where you will have a better view of the shape of the baptismal font, and all the way up under the roof you will have some wonderful views of Piazza dei Miracoli and its monuments.

One thing that you shouldn't miss, however, is the Baptistry guard demonstrating how the perfectly round shape of the dome produces beautiful acoustical effects. It's really amazing!
