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.

Admitted, it didn't lean as much as expected, but it is a sight you will never forget! Didn't bother going on the tour as the main sight is how it is leaning! When I walked around the corner and saw it, it was amazing! One of my favourite things I've seen.

I was expecting little more in Pisa, Like Florence. But this is the main main attraction here. Very busy place, too much of crowd, everyone is posing for the camera with one hand to save leaning tower. :) The architecture is awesome but we spent some two hours admiring the outer building, take picture and back! :)

You need to see the leaning tower once in your lifetime but I was slightly disappointed by the lack of lean, at some view points it doesn't lean at all!! Its also very small in height. Some nice architectural detail on the outside of the tower and it sits in a nice square. The area as you can imagine is... More

So glad we have seen it. It is huge with so much marble and the lean more defined than we expected. It was good to learn about the history whilst seeing it.

Visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa was on my list for sure. There are many leaning towers in Italy, but this is gotta be the steepest angle of all those that I saw! It is really, really leaning! Great picture opportunities here, the visit is a quick one park outside of the wall and walk into the area (no charge... More

After wanting to visit the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa for absolutely ages we finally managed to go this summer! It is definitely worth booking online before you go. I booked a 1pm time slot and when we arrived just a short time before the earliest available slot was 4.30. It was 39 degrees the day we went with not... More

Definitely a visit to add to the bucket list. We went early, before the crowds arrived and this definitely added to the experience.

We visited the leaning tower, but decided not to go in because of the high entrance fee. Just walking around gave is a very good impression. The Piazza itself is quite nice though.
