Torre di Pisa, Pisa
Categories: Observation Decks, Architectural Buildings, Tourist Spots
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.

This column of quartz is filled with losers trying to take pictures that make them look like they're holding the tower up. Our or all of the buildings I have reviewed, this is the biggest dissapointment. IT ISN'T EVEN MADE OUT OF PIZZA LIKE IT SAID. WHY DIDN'T I JUST BUY SOME PIE THAN WASTE MONEY ON THIS CRAP?
No doubt you've seen countless photos of the leaning tower of Pisa, but ACTUALLY seeing it with your own eyeballs is something else. If you enter the Piazza del Duomo closest to the leaning tower, then you might think, 'eh, ok, so it's leaning SLIGHTLY' but wait till you go round right to the front of the tower and prepared to be 'whelmed' if not overwhelmed (I give you the highest of fives if you know what film I am getting the word 'whelmed' from) by how superb this tower is in all its tilting and sunken glory. There really is nothing quite like this tower anywhere else in the world. If you would like to climb the tower, then you can either buy tickets on the day (look for the yellow sign posts to guide you) and choose which type of ticket you'd like (e.g. if you'd just like to climb the tower but not enter the Cathedral, temporary exhibition etc etc) but be aware that your tickets will be marked with times that you must adhere to. If you are serious about wanting to climb the tower without the fear of missing out on your preferred date and time, then visit the official ticket website 'OPA PISA . IT' (no spaces), where you can suss out which ticket you'd like to buy and skip the ticket buying line on the day. Be careful of your belongings especially in peak season as the piazza can get incredibly crowded (the beautiful areas of lush grass are fenced off so walking room becomes much more limited).

It was crowded but worth - visiting as Pisa is one of the world's best historical site. If you want to climb up the tower, you have to book tickets online to avoid long waiting times. The stairs are slippery so be very careful. If you don't have the chance to go up the tower, there are some attractions around that you can visit (The cathedral and the baptisery to name a few)
Italy's Incredible Italicized Building - The Leaning Tower of Pisa If there was a building that symbolizes an Italicized letter I, it is definitely the Leaning Tower of Pisa! The Leaning Tower of Pisa is part of the Field of Miracles Square. The Square took form in 1064 with the creation of the centerpiece of the entire complex: the Cathedral dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta. The cathedral symbolizes the maximum expression of Pisan Romanesque architecture style! They also built a bell tower for the Cathedral that now has its own name. Guess the name? Because of its unique, leaning nature and growing popularity, it is now called The Leaning Tower of Pisa! I was impressed with both structures looking so clean and clear as well as pretty, pristine and pure! Aside from the Cathedral and the Leaning Tower, I was very pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful green lawn being clean and well-maintained! Fun facts: 1. How long did it take to construct the leaning tower of Pisa? Construction of the Tower of Pisa started in the year 1173 and was completed in 1372. Construction stopped and restarted twice over those 199 years due to wars. 2. What is the shortest tower in the world? The leaning tower of Pisa is only 55.86 meters tall. It is considered the shortest tower to achieve worldwide recognition! 3. Did you know the Leaning Tower of Pisa experienced a miracle to still be here? Germans used the Leaning Tower of Pisa as a lookout during World War II. The Allies knew this but decided against bombing the area due to the impressive beauty of the tower and the cathedral. 4. Did you know that the Leaning Tower of Pisa almost lost its "lean-ness"? Benito Mussolini didn't like the "faulty tower" and had it straightened out. Fortunately for us, it was not successful and we still have our Leaning Tower of Pisa!
These are great building group,the duomo, baptistry and campanile (Leaning Tower). The Duomo is one of the finest Pisan-Romanesque buildings in Tuscany.
