Really, that's all you can say about it. If you don't get there by 10am, you will be sorry. Not only because in the summer it is unshaded and at least 1000 degrees, but the sheer volume (and variety) of tourists is overwhelming! However, it is beautiful and stunning and better than you thought it would be in your imagination.

My daughters first experience of Italy was the Field of Miracles in Pisa. She thoroughly enjoyed it.My wife and I had already experienced it in 1988, two years before it was closed to Then Health & safety hadn't been heard of and I seem to remember that you could dangle your feet over the side at certain levels of the...

Still too busy, just fine for a pit - stop, get a souvenir, take a picture holding the tower and leave

Loved that the Leaning Tower was next to the Duomo & Baptistry. The lawn was filled with people making those silly poses as if they are pushing over or trying to keep the tower from "leaning" over.

It was not as crazy as I had imagined it would be. We took the typical tourist pictures had lunch and then did a horse and carriage ride for 40 euros. Totally worth it. We got some history and shade for 30 minutes it was very nice. Prices for souvenirs and such were much cheaper than those in cique terre... More

Take pictures of the amateur pantomime artists from different directions (NOT with the tower in the background). You'll have a lot of fun.

disappointed with having to queue for tickets go go up the leaning tower, the time from getting to the front of the ticket queue to the timeslot for getting into the tower was 4 hours, then had to queue again to get into the tower

The Piazza is usually full of tourists, but it is still the best part of Pisa. When you arrive, the ornate white buildings all around the square create a picture of overwhelming beauty. It is quite amazing to see the church, baptistry, camposanto, and tower together - there is some beautiful building in every direction you look. Just stroll around... More

Small stalls along the way and just at the side of the leaning tower. A small piazza. Will pass by on the way to the leaning tower

What to say about Piazza dei Miracoli..just go see it ...of course u have to be in Italia..but anyways this is another story..In my opinion PIsa doesn`t have much to offer so is not worth it to waste time besides the Piazza. Organize yourself to book on internet to buy your tower visit ticket and order to reserve an eary... More
