Torre Guelfa was once part of the town walls in Pisa. Whilst it is quite interesting to look at and still worth a look, but be warned, the site is a bit of a shambles and is currently not open to visitors.

Intersting to see close up - and there was an exhibition in the adjoining building (interesting interior renovation) - but a shame that the tower was closed. Look out for the Medici boatyards on the way there, and worth crossing the river to see the San Paolo facade (also closed) on the other side if you have time.

The tower was built at the beginning of the 15th century, during the Florentine domination. It was named as an opposite of the older Ghibelline Tower. It offers the views as far as the sea shore and is well worth the visit.

The surrounds are more interesting as the tower overlooks the river. However you are not allowed to climb the tower.

Although I visited the Tower buildings I did not manage to ascend the tower, so I am ot able to offer a full review. But I did manage o explore all the levels in the refurbished attached building which, at the time, housed an exhibition of a local (I think) architects. The new and robust staircase and associated landings gave access to windows affording a variety of views over Pisa. This part of the building also has a lift so is very accessible.
