Owner description: The Tower of Pisa (180 feet in height) was begun in 1173 and, due to its faulty foundation on unstable soil, leans precariously more than 14 feet out of line, preventing visitors from climbing its 300-plus steps to the top.

Good historical place to check off your wish list. A great monument to visit. Mostly good for profile pics and a major landmark of Italy. You would need to pay to enter inside the leaning tower of pisa but its free to roam around and take pics from outside. Lots of places to eat near the place.

The leaning tower of Pisa! It is really great to look at and does really lean, which pictures don't show the full extent of the lean! It is full of tourists but that is part of he charm! It is definitely worth a visit!

A bit surprised that it's not as tall as I thought, but still a great sight. There are always tourists about, but its worth going in the evening especially when its low season. I went in January and there was hardly anyone there in the evening. Its also nice to see in both the day and night. There is also... More

If you are physically fit, you must make an online purchase to walk up to the leaning tower. In fact, the tower and the surrounding scene are more beautiful than any other books described.

It's only by taking a little time, to walk around the tower and duomo, view the tower from different angles, that I really appreciated just how much it leans, and the engineering that must go into keeping it from collapsing. My advice would be to go now, before it either leans so much they close it to tourists, or before... More

This place is filled with Tourists taking the exact same photo over and over again. That's what tourism is about, right? Well the fact that this building is still here is awesome alone! Great shots everywhere.

Like everyone is saying, do go to Pisa, even if just for a few hours! The grounds in Pisa are beautiful, with colourful Italian looking buildings, and nice cobble streets. Then you see the Tower with the Cathedral, and it's just breath taking. It is very busy, which I knew it would be. There is a café just outside the... More

Amazing in a beautiful setting. Busy with tourists but what do you expect? Go now in case it falls over! Have a drink in a cafe watching the world go by
