Owner description: 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.

“Leaning view of the Leaning Tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Visited Pisa by train when staying in Florence, an experience in itself. Fairly easy walk from the station taking about twenty minutes. Probably the most tourist "tat" stalls in our whole visit. The Tower, which had been closed for several years, is now open but tickets for entry are on a restricted, timed basis not just a queue basis. Our wait was three hours. Not a lot else to see in Pisa other than the Cathedral next to the Tower. A small museum is also located in the immediate area.

“it really leans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Everyone wants to take a picture from a distance which makes it look like they are supporting the tower. Long line to actually climb the tower

“Amazing and accessible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We had been told the leaning tower was hardly worth a visit. We were so glad we decided to take a look. The tower is in an unremarkable area of the city; in fact, if you cross the bridge, walk to the end of the shopping precinct and then turn left you come upon it almost by surprise.
The tower is stunning - constructed of white dressed stone, with attractive geometric patterns. For really gorgeous photos, try to visit at sunset!
