  • Just walking into the Piazza is wonderful - the buildings are stunning and the crowds atmospheric - we loved it. Lots of people (including us) taking the cheesy Leaning Tower of Pisa photo just added....  more

  • Great atmosphere. We had great fun taking pictures. It's was not too busy here. The climb up the tower was fun. The souvenir area was great. Get your souvenirs here. I paid too much money and the Italian lady insisted I take the change. So honest will be back
  • Is a great place where you can discover all the art of Italy! One of the best places in Italy. You should go there and check the place. Better with a guide to discover all the Secrets that Piazza del Duomo can hide! You will never forget this place
  • Piazza was quite interesting with three major leaning structures to explore. They all have unique features and a wonderful amount of history behind each of them. The majority of the tourist shops are outside the walls giving an unspoiled view. Truly a space that oozes history.
  • The leaning bell tower is pretty neat, and if you are lucky or patient you can get one of the 40 tickets per hour sold to go up in it. But the real gem is St Mary's Church right next to it that has incredible art work in it. An ornate giant baptistry (building) and a mausoleum are also in the great walled square.
  • Breathtaking... The age of this work or art built in those ancient times is just mind blowing and boggling... Videos and pictures definitely do not give it justice... You have to see it, breath it, feel it...
