Type: Architectural Buildings, Observation Decks/ Towers, Landmarks/ Points of Interest, Landmarks
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.

There's a few things to do in Pisa but none quite as good as visiting the leaning tower. I saw some very creative poses and people doing a lot of funny things outside on the walkway! There's other buildings in the area that if you have time you should check out as well (one I think was even a museum).... More

In fact last time we were in Pizza, we failed to get here. My mistake, absolutely fascinating. Unfortunately we only had a couple of hours and it was just after mid-day. The adjacent cathedral is closed 12 until 2 and visits 'up the tower' are timed. However, we really enjoyed our time at the complex and at least I can... More

We did the usual train trip from Firenze - itself enjoyable - and followed the crowd to the basilica and tower. We got tickets for the baptistery (which include the cathedral itself) but simply photographed the tower with others as I don't like heights. The tower is beautiful. The pulpit by Pisano in the duomo is most impressive, as is... More

Incredible visit including the ascent to the top using these amazing sloping stairs, a little bit weird but unforgettable sensation. Take care about balance!...do not miss this walk. Great pictures to take from the top. Only negative point: Be aware about the time to get in if you carry a backpack or straps. Even small ones, the guards at the... More

The Tower of Pisa is the campanile (bell tower) of the Cathedral of Pisa. It is a famous tower and everybody knows it because it is leaning. It is located at Piazza dei Miracoli, next to the Cathedral and the Baptistry and together these buildings are one of the most interesting places of the world. The tower was already leaning... More

You can walk around the area for free and take photos (with the multitudes) or buy a ticket and climb the steps to the top....or buy a ticket that includes the cathedral,,,,,,and/or the baptistery,,,,,and/or the Camposanto.......and/or the museum......or all of the above. Be prepared to spend some money, admission is not cheap but console yourself that its for a good... More

I would have rated it 5 stars if it was for the Leaning Tower itself, which looked impeccable in a nicely trimmed lawn. To the rest of the world, this could be easily the most recognizable symbol of Italy and you can't resist a few snaps of photos with you in them yourself. The architecture is interesting too, especially if... More

This was fantastic. My husband and I visited as part of a tour of Italy and spent about half a day here. It was amazingly beautiful, with gleaming white Carrera marble. I had not understand that it is the Bell Tower as one of three main parts of a church. It is important to understand the history of the building,... More

Had a good time, the must see attraction in Italy little bit pricey but worth it. Nice cafe's and restaurants that offers the food all over the world just around the place.

This is my second time to visit the Tower of Pisa and I am still amazed that it could survive from its fall and became a monument which attracts millions of tourists from around the world over the years. It is unfortunate that because of time constraint, I was unable to wait to gain entry both times but I am... More
