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.

Really nice building to admire. If we consider this was built so long time ago, this must have been a piece of art at that time. both the tower and the surroundings are well maintained.

“Amazing carving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Well worth visiting as there is plenty to see on the site as well as the tower. Amusing watching fellow travellers contorting their bodies in an effort to create a photo of themselves supporting the tower.

“Enjoyable Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I only spent 3 hours in Pisa to visit the leaning tower. Well worth the visit. I commuted from Florence by train to Pisa (1 hour ride) and rode a city bus directly to the Leaning Tower. It is great to see the Tower live rather than in photos. One of the highlights of my trip to Italy even though I only spend 3 hours in Pisa.

“Excellent and unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Truly amazing to see something like this in person. Although rather small and expensive, it's like something from a fiction novel- it's leaning and yet it's fine! Some tips: get there by the morning or 12pm before it gets crazy flooded and crowded with tourists. However, if you want to take pictures without the crowds, my suggestion is to stay there until 6 or 7 and take pictures without people in them. The village around the tower is nice and you can have lunch and dinner there. We took the train from Florence and it was a nice hour long train ride. Easy to buy tickets from the machines and definitely DON'T FORGET TO VALIDATE THEM!
