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.

Such a landmark icon, known internationally. But.... you have to make the climb. They do a good job of keeping the numbers experiencing the tower to a manageable number. But... if you navigate the climb at a moderate pace, the "leaning" aspect makes you "lean" into the wall as you climb or descend. Very cool and memorable.

Definitey worth going, if only to take a picture of the famous leaning tower and to see just how much it truly leans. There is also a Cathedral and a Baptistry on the same site. So, we came in on a cruise ship, which docked in Livorno. If you are a "do it yourself" individual, going to see the Leaning... More

Just came home from a 2 week vacation in Italy with my wife. One of our favorite place's was the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I strongly recommend this to be your list of visit's.

What is a visit to Italy without seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa? It is a scenic stroll from the train station across the Arno. The lean is striking along with the many throngs of people taking photographs. There was a wait and fee to enter the duomo and tower. One stop by train from Livorno to Pisa if you... More

This has been on my bucket list for some time and I thought I had missed my chance to visit it when it was closed prior to the repairs and stabilisation to its foundations. I visited with my sons on a flying stopover, as we were on our way to the Cinque Terre from Venice, but I felt I couldn't... More

It was great to see this famous tourism icon. If you don't like crowds then don't bother to go as it is such a popular visit so don't imagine you'll be the only person visiting. We didn't visit anything else but it was definitely worth the visit.

Outwardly enclosed by an antiquated bulwark, the Leaning Tower of Pisa shares its space with three other magnificent constructs, each worthy of visit (and all containable in the same photo). I honestly don’t know if there’s anything else worthy of note in Pisa, but this majestic compound justifies any detour. Our tour was blessed with weather but certainly not time.... More

When planning our trip to Italy it was the other half who insisted we stop in Pisa to see the tower, personally I would not have been that fussed given how far north Pisa is to where I was looking to go. However I am glad he insisted as it's an absolute must see. Pre book your ticket if you... More

We went up to the leaning tower and visited all the famous landmarks in this Miracles' square.The coach parked right at the square itself ! This time round we came as part of the shore excursion from the cruiser.The car park was a... More

We did a half day visit into Pisa from Florence (since it was so close and we really just wanted to see the Tower). Tick Italy was the only site that I could find a mini tour of the tower. I recommend getting the tickets before going because if you don’t you’ll be waiting in line for a long time... More
