Why go to Pisa? The leaning tower is for most people the reason to go to Pisa and please do it is realy worth to go there . Fantastic building and still standing. Did only go around it , did simply find the price for climming the many stairs absolutly to high 18,00 euro per person. But do go there.

It's a nice attraction that everyone wants to see. Just make sure that you bring a really wide angle lens for your camera. You need a real wide angle lens to capture the effect that tower is actually leaning. If you don't, you will just see another tower in your pictures. Try to go back as much as you can... More

I was surprised how hard it was to find, since a tower should stand out in a town. A guy on the street said to ignore the signs pointing out the way, and then it became easier to get to. I do not recall all the different buildings in the area within the walls, but it was so great to... More

Takes about 30mins to climb look around and back down again. No bags allowed have to be left in lockers. Very busy and there are queues. Really does lean quite a lot and as you climb feels really strange.

We did not stay in Pisa. As advised we were staying at Florence and took a train in the morning and reached Pisa in an hours time. This is truly one of the wonders of the world. The tower looks stunning. There is nothing else to see there so we were back by noon in Florence. Surely a place to... More

We could not catch the 19E Regional train to Pisa from Rome, took intercity which saved one hour at 15E extra cost. Bus ticket from pisa station to pisa tower cost 2E. Entrance fee to tower is 18E. Nothing big about climbing to the top. Have to leave all bags at the safebox next to ticket room. Pisa Basilica (free)... More

Booked tickets online so we just walked up to the ticket booth, showed our tickets and met our guide. Time worn steps led us up and had some great views on the top. It took us about 1/2 hr for the entire experience but well worth it!

The Leaning Tower is part of a larger complex. Some may not find it the most beautiful piece of architecture but it is definitely worth a visit. Some buildings don't live up to expectations. This one went beyond ours. It really really leans. See it.

We all know of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and, on occasions, these incredibly famous sites turn out to be a disappointment - not so La Torre di Pisa! A must if you're in the area. A climb up the tour is doable even if you're claustrophobic like me - plenty of light all the time. It's a slightly disorientating... More
