Considering the amount of tourist traffic going through here, the Piazza is very well maintained and beautiful. The buildings are stunning and you can take some great photos (including holding up the leaning tower!)

You will have to pass through most of this to visit the three main tourists sites in Pisa, full of tourists all struggling the get their photos of the Tower without much regard for anyone else's photo. Grin and bear it and get your required photo showing you holding up the Tower. Watching the tourists is half the fun. Streets... More

We were group of friends, who went 10 days road trip through all Italy. This was one of our destination to see.... You wont see something more beautiful as Piazza se Miracolli... Just go and enjoy... Lunch, drink in grass in front or visit inside... whatever you will be happy...

It was simply one of the best days of my life. I wasn't sure about going up the tower because it was 18 Euro but it was worth it as well as visiting the Cathedral, the Baptistry and the Campo Santo. Take your time watch the video in the Campo Santo as it shows the amazing restoration work that was... More

Always wanted to see the most famous piece of shoddy building in the world. And when I got to see the tower up close and personal it was every bit as impressive. The only disappointment was that we had timed it too late to get up to the top. They are having to limit the numbers at any one time... More

The crowds will always be there before you; you'll have to visit the sights joining them. BUT try to get back there at sunset, and you'll have the plaza for yourself although all the buildings will then be closed, of course.

Public toilets on-site, beautiful green grass, with an opportunity to walk round the outside of the monuments, if you didn't have the budget to buy a ticket to go inside. There was no litter and the buildings were so well-restored, they seemed to sparkle in the sun.

The Piazza dei Miracoli (the piazza in which the Leaning Tower, the Duomo and the Baptistery are located) is one of the finest architectural monuments I've seen in Tuscany. The Leaning tower is very impressive, naturally, but the Baptistery, in my opinion, was the real surprise. If you manage to visit in the late afternoon, or early morning, you will... More
