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.

Thought this might be just too much of a tourist trap, but am so glad we took time to visit. Bought a ticket to visit 3 sites Lu's entry to the cathedral for just 8 euros each which was such good value for money. My absolute favourite was the Camposanto, which was full of frescos, some had been restored, and... More

I enjoyed this visit although it is a short trip. The first glance of the tower is the most exciting part. Though the remainder is lovely and interesting. Very long queue to actually climb the tower and we didn't have that time. All in all worth doing.

We were on a cruise and decided it would be cheaper to get the train into Pisa from the station near were we had docked. So glad we didn't pay the expensive cost of the excursions from the ship, it was so much cheaper to do it on your own. Just need to have the confidence to do it, it's... More

It is actually whiter than it appears in photos. Not on its own there is a whole massive cathedral right next to it. They are on their own in quite a large square. Buses are not allowed anywhere near so they park about a mile away. A small market on the way so can shop for souvenirs. Also eating places.... More

We did a cruise ship excursion from the port at Livorno. The drive to Pisa was beautiful, field upon field of sunflowers and olive trees! Pisa and the cathedral was amazing! Watch out for the vendors outside the entrance ... they won't leave you alone.

Great day out, wandering around the grass and church. Sat and watched the crowds followed by a trip up the tower and lunch in the square. Lots of pictures taken, walk in the market and shopping in surrounding streets. Finished off with pizza in a side avenue. Gorgeous. But remember to go up the tower you need to be over... More

This is a site worth seeing if you are in the area. The main problem is it gets very busy with large groups. I was up one morning at 6.30 and walked to the Tower. It was wonderful. the sun was just coming up, the light was stunning and there was only me and six other people. Well worth getting... More

Really good fun climbing to the top! Make sure you get there 15 min before your time slot so you can hand in your bag to the locker lady as no bags allowed up the tower! The locker room is next to the gift shop on the left hand side of the square as you look at the tower! Booked... More

The tower and surrounding buildings were beautiful! We went on a Sunday which was perfect because there weren't as many tourists. Some shops were closed but some were open and you would be able to choose from multiple restaurants. To go into the tower and surrounding buildings you need to pay. You can buy tower tickets online, one option is... More

I visited the famous leaning tower and was surprised none of the other amazing buildings never get a mention. Everyone trying to get pics of holding up the tower but cleared off the grass by a whistling guard bit of a killjoy.
