What travelers say:

The Baptistery of St. John in Florence is located in the Piazza del Duomo, opposite the famous Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Bell Tower of Giotto. The Baptistery has three bronze gates with very exquisite reliefs. It is called the Gate of Heaven.” The exquisite reliefs attracted many tourists to take pictures, and it was a big circle. It is said that the interior decoration of the baptistery is also extremely exquisite, there are many sculptures and murals inside, but unfortunately there is no chance to visit it. This baptistery is the place where many Renaissance leaders are baptized, and it is also the baptistery for all Florence Catholics. It is very famous in the local area.
