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.

We made the day trip from Florence to Pisa. The first glimpse of the tower was amazing. We've all seen tons of pictures, but the "Tower of Pisa" is stunning in person. The architecture is beautiful. It was crowded, but aren't most attractions? We bought tickets to climb to the top of the tower. If you go, I think that... More

Medical condition permitting, its worth the disconcerting walk to the top. The steps are all inside the tower between the outer and inner walls so exposure/vertigo should not be an issue but leaning one way then the other as the stairs wind around? Weird sensation

We took a quick train ride from Florence to Pisa (50 minutes). From the train station we walked 1 mile to the leaning tower. The city of Pisa is surprisingly delightful. The Tower itself is also a great sight. You don't just get to see the Tower, but also a beautiful Baptistry and Cathedral.

Visited visa by train from Florence. Took a the Red bus Straight from the station to piazza dei miracoli, the place where the tower is situated. the moment you lay you eyes on the whole area it is sight to behold. It kept me transfixed for quite some time. Also did climb the tower, it is better to book in... More

best thing to do is to be there early in the morning, as we arrived there at 08:45 in the morning, there was no waiting time to go up the tower, and although it was a quiet an exercise, but certainly worth it. The view from the top is breath taking. Highly recommended to get there in the morning, climb... More

Go to see the way it was constructed. Get a guide to tell you more on it coz the experience becomes more educative. when you do see the lean in real, you'll be in awe of the structure. The cathedral near it also plays an important role. There's a nice market right outside the Tower. Good to shop some ladies... More

We stayed near San Gimignano and had rented cars. The trip into Pisa was just over an hour and well worth the time in and back. The tower and structures in the main square are truly magnificent. You can walk around everything for free, or pay for tickets to enter each of the buildings. The town streets within the walls... More

I suppose that if one travels to Italy, the Leaning Tower is a must. You've seen it in photos a million times, and it's exactly as pictured--maybe slightly more impressive. However, having seen it, I could have missed it and not felt bad about it. I guess that's easy to say since I went, but it is not a site... More

I've been told it's not worth going to Pisa. Honestly I think the area is a little grubby, it is more of a day trip kind of area just to see the tower, I wouldn't spend the night or anything. What's really nice is they plan it out so only a certain amount of people are in the tower at... More

Crowds galore, but beautiful grounds and worth exploring the basilica adjacent. The town itself is ok but nothing like the neighbours in Tuscany. good for walking as there is a pedestrian walk that goes for a few miles right to the train station.
