Great at dusk when most people have gone. Gets crowded during the day and people ignore the 'Do not stand on the grass' sign en masse! This is a world reknowned site so you expect it to be busy - and this was in February! The spectacular Duomo (cathedral) is free to enter but you still need to get a ticket from the ticket office. The cost to go up the Leaning Tower is 18 euros. The Baptistry is 5 euros. Be prepared for the row of souvenir stalls that sell you your guides, models, fridge magnets and masks.
