Liked: beautiful green lawn, marvelous buildings Disliked: the other tourists who were taking "funny" pictures about the Leaning Tower. Honestly: is it really necessary???

Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) is composed by the Cathedral or Duomo, the Campanile or free standing Bell's tower (leaning tower), the Baptistry, and the Camposanto. Also close by, are the Opera Museum, and the Sinopie Museum. This Piazza is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen in Italy. I love it because the contrast of the... More

Definitely worth a stop when traveling to Italy. The place is magnificent - the architecture is other-worldly. The tower, while amazing in itself, is almost dwarfed by the large church nearby. Expect to spend a few hours, especially if you enter the tower and church. Lovely place to visit.

We drove into Pisa and parked in the car park nearby. We were surprised by the number of street sellers and stalls as we walked the 200 yards or so to the Piazza. Fortunately once through the gate into the Piazza they were no more. The piazza dei Miracoli is the entire area including the Leaning Tower, the Duomo, the... More

An absolute must-see in Italy. Best early in the morning before the hordes of tourists arrive. We visited around 8.30 am and the place was crowded by 9.30. After that time you won't be able to take the famous photo with your hand out holding they leaning tower from falling. Avoid the near by caffees if you can. They are... More

The Piazza contains the Duomo of 1063, Baptistery of 1152 and Campo Santo cemetery of 1278. This is the second time i have visited. First time there was driving wind coming in from the sea which made the experience most unpleasant. Second time it was calm and sunny. Spend a few hours there - you will see some remarkable architecture.... More

Piazza dei miracoli is a wonderful place where you can enjoy with the monuments and relax laying in the green lawn. The cathedral, the baptistery, the holy cemetery and finally the leaning tower stay in this place in armony and are so much suggestive.

Reserve in advance online - must check in ALL bags (everything!) at the office to the left when facing the entrance to the tower - short talk by guide in Italian then in English; first Italian speakers are sent to climb the stairs (go slowly enjoy the views along the way) then the English speakers. Take your time, the climb... More

This place is very clean, the buildings stunning and the whole area appeared peaceful, although busy. The tower is amazing and we sat at a cafe just looking at this place. It was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours.
