Fodor's Review

More specifically known as the Baptistry of San Giovanni alle Fonti, this 4th century baptistry is one of two that lie beneath the Duomo. Although opinion remains divided, it is widely believed to be where Ambrose, Milan's first bishop and patron saint, baptized Augustine. Tickets are available at the kiosk inside the cathedral and include a visit of the Duomo's museum.
