Coming from via degli Orafi the glance is really fulfilling with the bell tower that dominates the square, the Cathedral of San Zeno with inside the silver altar in the chapel dedicated to Saint James, the patron saint of the city, the baptistery of San Giovanni in Corte, Palazzo Vescovile, Palazzo Pretorio and the Town Hall. Even if you are just passing through from Pistoia, Piazza del Duomo is not to be missed.show original

While entry into this lovely Church is free, you must follow the yellow signs that indicate where you can get a free ticket with an organised time of entry. There is the option of pre-purchasing a ticket on the official ticketing website 'OPA PISA . IT' (no spaces) and it states that if you buy any ticket for any of the other paid sites on the Piazza dei Miracoli then you are free to enter the Duomo whenever you please. The ceiling of the church is beautiful, especially when the sunlight is coming through and making the ceiling look like it is glittering. Even as the weather gets hotter, the dress codes for entering holy places remain- men and women must cover up appropriately (not too much leg, or arm or chest etc) or you will be asked to do so before you are allowed to enter.
Very busy when we went. People taking photos from all angles. Security is very high with armed guards wondering the grounds. The tower itself has a consistently large queue and you must leave your bags before ascending. There are a lot of places to go into and learn about but you have to pay.
Fantastic Field of Miracles featuring the Leaning Tower of Pisa I was amazed by the Field of Miracles! It looked so pretty, pristine and pure! The entire Field of Miracles Cathedral Square was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The leaning tower of Pisa was the highlight! Before I saw it for the first time, I had an impression that it was old and wooden and it was famous just because it is leaning. I was super surprised in a good way to see it made of marble, very clean and well-preserved! The leaning tower of Pisa is only 55.86 meters tall. It is considered the shortest tower to achieve worldwide recognition! 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. 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. 3. 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!
Worth the visit! I wish I had the time and euro to go to the top of the Leaning Tower. Make sure to bring atleast 30€ to do all the exhibits and museum!
As expected, the place is very crowded, and you will probably see hundred of people "holding up" the tower here. It is amazing to see the tower in person. You should definitely walk up to it and around it, going to some spots shows the tilt a lot more.
