About
It is called the Leaning Tower or the Tower of Pisa but actually it was never used for defending the city; it is part of the religious complex in the Duomo Square and acts as its bell tower. It played an active role in both human and divine timekeeping with its seven bells – one for each musical note – the largest of which, cast in 1655, weighs a full three and a half tonnes! It is known throughout the world for the beauty of its architecture, for its extraordinary tilt, which makes it an authentic miracle of statics, and for the fact that it stands in the universally renowned Piazza dei Miracoli, of which it is certainly the prize jewel. And this is why it is one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

The famous Lesning Tower is the bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa, about 56 meters high.
The construction began in 1173 but it was interrupted several times due to the problems of a collapse of the ground that had determined its inclination.
A must-try experience is the climb up the spiral staircase to the belfry at the top where the seven bells have been placed.

I have seen the tower in 1979, 2001, 2013, and in SEP. This time it looked so clean - did not go up inside. Maybe next time....

Amazing building

It is a truly amazing building. Have been up it before so didn't bother this time. Have to book tickets. €25 is a bit steep but it is a thing to do. Views are great

Much more leaning over than expected!

Strolling over the place of miracles is a pleasure, not just for the tower but also for the other buildings and the overall atmosphere. A pity that it needs to be protected by the military because of the risks of terrorism....

Nothing to say except an excellent view once up at the top. Part of a multi ticket which was really good value for money.

A Must See while in Pisa

This was our second visit to Pisa and the Tower. Always amazes me each time we visit. The grounds are wonderful and the people of Pisa are fantastic.

Impressive

As a part of the tour through Tuscany, I anticipated the stop at Pisa and the Leaning Tower to be more of routine than new discovery. I was very pleasantly surprised. Not only is the entrance through the ancient medieval walls picturesque, but the lineup of the Baptistry, the Cathedral, and iconic Leaning Tower is truly magnificent. I yes we did the silly pictures, but we also admired the mastery of the architecture all around us.

It is not worth taking up

It is the best example of how a serious mistake can make something world-famous. The leaning tower is leaning because the foundations of the building are not right, but the walls of the cathedral are also very crooked.

The tower is more interesting to see from the outside than the inside, you have to book in advance, the price is very expensive and the climb is not particularly enjoyable. (Apart from the fact that because of the incline means your feet don't step where they should.)

Another cool sight for interactive photos.

I got lucky stopping in the town of Pisa. My train back from Venice had an hour between trains when we arrived in Pisa. Getting there takes about 9-10mins by car of 22-23 mins on foot. My girlfriend and I were able to quickly call a taxi and get to the leaning tower with enough time to take silly photos and head back to the train station on foot. There are tickets available to enter the tower but it's just as enjoyable from outside. It's funny to see this structure in person after all the phots of it I've seen of it in books, movies and from others who have traveled there. Besides the leaning tower Pisa is a pretty quiet sleepy town so don't expect a whole lot of other actives to do.

Terrible overrated mass tourist trap. Possibly the ugliest place in terms of hospitality and tourist harrasment. Watch who you talk to and keep your hand on your pocket. Plan only a drive by of an hour to quickly view te tower and beautiful cathedral.
