Leaning Tower of Pisa, Pisa

4.5
#1 of 206 in Things to do in Pisa
Leaning Tower of Pisa is known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side. For a rewarding view, climb to the top. Designed to stand upright but built with a faulty foundation on unstable soil, this freestanding bell tower began to lean long before construction was finished. The tilt gradually increased until the structure was stabilized. The leaning was partially corrected by massive restoration efforts in the 20th century. Tilting precariously for centuries, the top of the tower has been displaced about 4 m (13 ft) from where it would be if the structure were perfectly vertical. Climbing the tower requires a reservation-based ticket, best purchased well in advance to avoid a wait. You can buy a same-day ticket that allows you to enter at a specific time, usually one to two hours after the purchase time.

  • Great place. There were a lot of people but it wasn't as noisy around the attraction. Costs 15 euros to go up but we didn't feel the need to. There are some very good restaurants nearby. Recommended.....  more »
  • You can buy ticket online to avoid queues. Their official website is very well organised and slots available all the way through the day. Best to see early morning before crowds of tourists arrive...  more »

  • The leaning tower of Pisa has become a famous icon of Italy. We visited it in 2014 on our trip to Europe. As is the case with many monumental places in Italy, we had to park our bus far from the place. We took a second bus till the entrance of the leaning tower. There are lots of stalls outside selling souvenirs and leather items. From the entrance you can see the leaning tower and other structures enclosed by a high wall from all the sides. There are other structures around the leaning tower which has also stunning Italian architecture. I think all the structures including the leaning tower are made of marble, which can be found in plenty in Italy. The campus of leaning tower is very large to fit hundreds of people. It can be very hot on a sunny and dry day in Italy. But in the shades of the marble structures you really can feel cooler. It was great to see this monument once included in the seven wonders of the world. 👌🏼👍🏻
  • Amazing structure with fantastic landscaping. Maintained like brand new structure, as you will not find any damage or any cracks in anywhere! Best monument to take photos and ideal time to take it between 4 - 6 pm. Easily you can spend two to three hours in this place. Outside lots of small souvenir shops are available. We reached this place from Florence by train and from station to here by bus, which is very convenient.
