Create an itinerary including Leaning Tower of Pisa
Leaning Tower of Pisa is known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side. For a rewarding view, climb to the top. Designed to stand upright but built with a faulty foundation on unstable soil, this freestanding bell tower began to lean long before construction was finished. The tilt gradually increased until the structure was stabilized. The leaning was partially corrected by massive restoration efforts in the 20th century. Tilting precariously for centuries, the top of the tower has been displaced about 4 m (13 ft) from where it would be if the structure were perfectly vertical. Climbing the tower requires a reservation-based ticket, best purchased well in advance to avoid a wait. You can buy a same-day ticket that allows you to enter at a specific time, usually one to two hours after the purchase time.

  • You see pictures of this your whole life, but this is a site which is truly better than the pictures. We didn't go up in to it, but just the outside view is pronominal.

  • Well worth visiting this beautiful square to see the leaning tower and the other amazing buildings. It is surprising how far the tower leans. It can get very busy with visitors so come early if you...

  • Leaning Tower of Pisa is the most iconic marble monument of Italy! The Leaning Tower of Pisa was a beautiful tower with some great architecture. Entering the area there is a massive park facing the Pisa, this is a great spot to take creating pictures at different angles. There is also a beautiful cathedral that you can have a sneak peak of. I recommend going to the Pisa by a Tour Guide because it is a 1h 30min ride. It is a must to read the boards to learn interesting facts about Pisa. Leaving Pisa there are many souvenir shops, you can pick out a souvenir or two to mark this memorable moment.
  • What an amazing site!!!! First, I saw it very quickly when I was in the train. Then when I went out from the train and was heading to the site, I saw the top of the tower! What a feeling!! Just amazing! It’s among the most impressive things I ever seen in my life! All people go there to visit the tower but you should absolutely visit the whole site: the cathedral, the museum etc… because each one of them is a must see site. I loved this place and would definitely come back during my next visit to Tuscany.
  • Lots of people at once, one cafe which stresses you to leave as they want other people to sit down even though one orders constantly. For people who love to observe people it is amazing. 😊 lots of fun Action. Interesting fact: Bell ringing from tower. I had no idea there were bells. Worth a visit for sure, just to see the leaning tower.
  • Book online to guarantee a times slot to go inside. The tower is not as big as you think but still impressive. It's is well kept and a great opportunity for photos. The tower can be accessed right to the top. Spectacular views from the top make the climb up worth while. Not suitable for these with mobility issues. The tower is beautiful. I recommend climbing it. You have to buy tickets across the street where you can also purchase tickets to all the attractions near by. The tickets to the tower are time slotted but all the other buildings are available whenever you choose to enter. Climbing the tower is a little claustrophobic and disorienting due to the lean of the tower, but the view from the top is worth it. After your climb you can relax on the grass in the shade of the cathedral.
  • Beautiful place, everything is close to the next attraction. Of course, a lot of people trying to take the typical picture, but you can manage to get good shots away from others. Nice coffee shops to have a snack or an amazing ice cream. Remember to buy tickets in advance, all attractions have different times and there are some restrictions in regards to age (do your research).
