It is a Unesco site and one of the most beautiful and suggestive place in the world, that can tell many different stories about medieval architecture, medieval and Renaissance works of art, intercultural exchanges, people, .... The Italian writer Gabriele D'Annunzio called this place "Piazza dei Miracoli" because of its extraordinary beauty that you can't see anywhere else. Not to... More

Lots of kiosks selling street stuff & a mcdonald's just at the gate of the square, just in case u dont like Italian food. There are some eateries on... More

Booked online combination tickets for the whole site. Really enjoyed the Duomo, Tower, Baptistry and the Camposanto. The del duomo museum was good but the Sinopie was a bit pointless. We went early in the morning and missed a lot of the crowd but even by lunch time it wasn't too crowded.

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Piazza dei Miracoli while traveling in Italy with our tour group with Gate 1 Travel. We rode the bus over to an area to unload, then were promptly and eagerly approached by street peddlers selling jewelry or handbags looped around their arms. This was very annoying! We walked to a...

There were very few tourists around when we went, and we had the whole place to ourselves. The Tower exceeded all my expectations. We've all seen the Leaning Tower in the media so many times that my expectations of it were low. But it's so much more beautiful in real life. Moreover, there's more than just one tower. The entire... More

You make your way into the Piazza dei Miracoli through the usual throng of tacky souvenir stalls selling plastic models of the Leaning Tower, 'I 'heart' Italia' t-shirts, cheap sunglasses and the like. Once through the gate, however, the Piazza itself comes as a lovely surprise. Its several buildings - the Baptistery, the Cathedral, the Leaning Tower and the Camposanto... More

I was surprised about how much there was to see than just one tower. The cathedral, baptistery and cemetery were a real bonus. While in the baptistery, another visitor started singing Ave Maria and the acoustics there were amazing. A guide also did some tones showing off the echo. I was really impressed with the frescos in the cemetery although... More

At both ends of the Piazza there are the usual sellers trying to sell trashy goods but they don't pester too much if you show them you're not interested.

The Pisa Tower is one of the most visited sites of the world, and Piazza dei Miracoli shows how to run it perfectly well. The Piazza is well kept, organized and structured in order to help you have the best experience out of these amazing sites ,which are the battistery, the cathedral and Leaning tower. Plenty of restaurants and souvenir... More
