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.

I went on a rainy evening in the summertime, and the number of people there was astonishing. The windows were made of iron and the rain was making the stairs damp, and the people going up and down the small hallway made it quite difficult. Seeing the dip in each stair where millions of people have walked and down over... More

I always thought it was a long and lean structure. I was amazed how huge the round structure actually is! Surprised me that it was also in an enclosed in the area, kind of like a Citadel kind of walled structure. Amazing, must visit. Certain times of the day, the sun falls only on one side and hence for best... More

One can't visit Pisa and not see it - however it wasn't the most interesting part of my visit. I didn't climb it so can't comment of the view from the top. It leans less than I thought it would. The whole area has some lovely examples of medieval architecture and later richly built edifices and a lot of it... More

It,s a long hike to the top but there are sections that you come out to see the view. The view from the top is amazing and its relaxing siting there. Down side there's no toilets so would advice to go before climbing up.

Everyone has seen a hundred photos of the tower, but nothing really prepares you for it. I sounds stupid to say but it really is leaning! It seems to defy gravity in a way. We went in Feb and it was pretty busy, but I dred to think what it would be like in summer, especially with the heat. We... More

The tickets were easily obtained, if a little pricey, but then it is the star attraction of Pisa. We entered the tower and were met with a spiral staircase that took us all the way to the top. The staircase itself was pretty interesting as it swings from left to right and back as you progress up the tower, which... More

kind of boring to see such a single building. Don't know why so many trourists are crazy about it. What interests me is not the leaning tower itself, it's the people who pose for photos with the tower. Their gestures look funny to me.

Loved seeing this! Yes there are tourist traps in town, it's Pisa, there is NOTHING else there! But don't hold that agains the tower. Go see it and pay the 15 Euro or so to go up it. It is like being in a fun house for adults. It is truly amazing how this thing leans! They knew it was... More

Of course we had to see it, but at 18 euro per person (even 10 year olds) a little expensive to climb. My son and I did the climb which was interesting walking on a lean. Once at the top a lovely view. It was very cold and windy this day. I'm glad I've climbed up but not in a... More

We stopped at Florence whilst on a Mediterranean Cruise and made the short journey inland to Pisa. Wow this was so worth the journey. Yes its very commercialised with stalls selling mainly tat but some were OK. But unless you're not to cracky on your feet pay to be able to go up the tower. The experience of climbing it... More
