Torre di Pisa, Pisa

4.4
Torre di 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 need to buy a ticket in advance. We went early. I have two kids - the youngest ages that can go up the tower is 8. It is expensive but the view from the top is beautiful and the sensation of being...  more »

    Essential passage by Pisa, not for the famous photo with the leaning tower... To avoid the crowds, we arrived early on-site, at 8:45, and had no trouble to park a few steps and to circulate on the site!

  • Just been there it's magical, Being able to have a great time with my family made it all worth it. The place beautiful, there are areas for the kids to play while you are looking inside the buildings, take your time enjoy the area, enjoy the people. At the entrance you can buy you nick nacks to take back home. There is a lot of security around this place and people usually are nice. A small word of Warning " be aware of the vendors inside the area, they can be pushy and dumb from time to time" If you need help you can always call the Police near by and they will leave you alone. Other than that get there early, take your time and enjoy the beautiful area.
  • You have to go because it's the "Leaning Tower of Pisa". It actually looks on a greater lean than in the photos. Quite dramatic. The Piazza is quite lovely. The Duomo is an incredible building. Never felt threatened or worried about pickpockets. But we also never got our wallets out. Soldiers on guard were very nice, but professional. It was raining so the hawkers were out selling umbrellas. But not aggressive.
  • Astonishing! When you get off the bus, walk towards the main entrance of the square you have the best first sight of the tower, it looks naughty, it looks amazing. The Cathedral is really beautiful from inside. The baptistery is also nice, one of the most beautiful places I have ever traveled to.
  • I really enjoyed my visit to the tower and surrounding areas. We went early evening and the crowds were not to bad at all. Nip off down one of the side streets for a drink, it's nice to sit and relax in the area.
  • Beautiful. Perfect to go on a clear sunny day and go up and enjoy the view. Would highly recommend a half day trip here to anyone. Step in history and just sit and watch the sunset from above
