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.

The tower has a wow factor when you see it. The structure is well worth the visit and going up the tower is a "must". Book on-line (really easy) and, subject to the time of year that you visit, pick a time between 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm as there are less people around and the light is still good.

Fabulous view of Pisa from the top of the tower. Highly recommend taking the tower tour. Be warned though, lots of steps which can be slippery.

We got off the train at Pisa Central and walked through the city to the "back side" of the tower. The walk was easy and we followed Rick Steve's walking tour so we learned about the history as we went. The tower is simply beautifu! The best pictures of the tower itself are from the back side and if you... More

It is such a simple, but wonderful structure... no jazz, but the tilt makes the difference. it becomes an icon for the world. good garden, good food close by. The Cathedral is also very beautiful. You can go up or spend time outside clicking pics. good pics are from a distance....

visited in early march weather was chilly but fine. Tower is astonishing to see. be very cautious in the pisa area especially in the shopping area outside the wall. there are a lot of beggars thieves and pickpockets in and out so take precautions. DO NOT hand your camera to someone to take your picture, you might not get it... More

It's a world icon. If your near by you have to stop. It leans way more than you think. It set in a nice park area with other actions to see. It's alway busy. There's and entrance fee to climb to the top... Great views. The climb up is work! It's a once in a lifetime visit and I've done... More

It's just so bizarre and quite amusing to see this beautifully styled marble tower with its six tiers of columns, looking like it's about to topple over. It's a must-see building. Pictures do not do it justice.

Surprisingly expensive (compared to other european attractions) at 18 euro per person. (under 8 year not able to go up). Entry to the grounds is free, the charge is for going up the tower (think narrow corridored stairs, passing people on the way up & down with the stairs slanting). Quick walk & down the stairs and a short look... More

Interesting to visit - takes about 30mins. Best advice - you must put your bag in the luggage store BEFORE going to the tower AND they only seen to let you put it in 15 - 20 mins before your appointed time to ascend the tower. Good view from the tower - of the cathedral and surrounds.
