    Seeing outside is for free. If you like to go into the Tower, you need to buy a ticket in before. It costs €18 per adult. Ticket shows your time to enter, so you don't have to wait in a long line.

    The tower began leaning after just 2 floors were built, but 100 years later they carried on building another 8 floors. And even though it could be corrected, they decided not to as its lean is famous.

    Great place to stop before you get your plane if you have one to catch in the evening. Short hop away and iconic sites with great food and drink nearby!

    A sight to behold. Book your tickets online and be precise with the timing. Not very high and it is easy to reach the top. Views from the top are awesome.

    You have to buy the tickets before you start the queue (right side of the tower) and leave your handbag to the luggage shop (or you can't enter the tower). Entrance 18€ but it's amazing!

    Views from tower top are OK. No bags/back packs/purses allowed on the tower. Check them into the cloak room for free before getting in line to go up.

    I always wanted to come, and finally dream came true. Beautiful place, but don't expect much to see at the tower. Pay 18 Euro if you wish to go up to.

    The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. Construction of the tower occurred in three stages across 177 years.

    Make sure to take as many cheesy pics as possible! Just watch out for the pickpockets and the gangs of people selling selfie-sticks and cheap sunglasses.
    Lloyd G · July 28, 2015
  • Elle T.
    Book your ticket online to avoid queues and disappointment to climb the tower. 30 people max for 30mins only during peak season to climb up 294 stairs and return to terra firma!

    nice square and you pay 18 euros to go up with about 290 steps to climb,, great views of th city from the top..they tell you a bit of history as well..

    No bags allowed inside the tower if you're getting in. Lockers for the bags are located at the ticket office. If you're with a group tour, leave your bag in the car/bus.

    Come on, aren't you posing for a "Pisa Pusher" photo? It started leaning soon after it was built on marshy ground. Discover what's beyond the Leaning Tower:

    Always great. The tower looks different from every angle and bizarre selfies are obligatory. Queue to go up is usually long.

    İts really crooked and amazingly bigger than the pics! U wont believe in ur eyes when u see it! U should definately see the Pisa Tower before u die!
    Kaan Askin · December 23, 2015
  • 5 B.
    Awesome view, but if u come, u will have a little disappointed because Pisa leaning tower is small, if u want to go inside tower, must pay 18e, too expensive

    Only one hour by train from Florence, Pisa is a must do when you are in Italy. Make sure you get the typical cheesy picture holding up the tower

    Buy cheap souvenirs here. There a lots ot Pisa tower's miniature sold from small to huge at your choice. Starting from €2.00 each for a small one :)

    One and two floors up was most scary. There you really feel like you will slip of the tower. The higher you get the more comfortable it feels:-)

    If you climb the tower, don't straighten the view when you take pictures. Many people come home with photos that show the view with straight horizon lines. Read more

    Loads of tourists holding up the tower. It's fun to watch folks try and get positioned just so. If you have a dog, be aware the hot pavement can burn their pads.

    DO NOT PARK ON "CARDINALE PEITRO MAFFI" - dodgy thieves threaten you for money to "look after your car" free 1 hour parking just round the corner on Contessa Matilda

    Rent bikes from your hotel and ride through the streets to the tower. Its a great way to see the city, and not deal with parking!
  • Rodolfo
    Ok, it is a must see in Pisa but don't waste too much time in climbing it, since only few can do that together. Try to watch it from every corner to discover a view when it does not seem to lean!
    Rodolfo · December 31, 2011
  • Roman M.
    Show up at 7am and you will be the only person, you'll have the tower all to yourself. This was mid July, so trust me, worth it.

    You can read about it, you can see pictures of it, but I still wasn't prepared for just how tilted it is. Nothing like seeing it in person.

    It's a leaning tower, which means that sometimes someone wants to jump off. Not a pleasant experience, from any point of view.
    Leo De W8er · November 24, 2014

    Its real name it is "belltower of St.Mary", but it is known all around the world as "the tower", par excellence, of Pisa.

    Well, I expected more from it but my wife loved it. It is nice, but don't spend more than couple hours in there, not much to see.

    Incredible view!! Don't try to step on the grass despite of the other tourist doing it, you really may get fined

    No real need to go up the tower! The graves are cool and look for the little room with the relics
    Janet Cheung · August 8, 2014

    If you go to take the ticket which includes entry the cathedral and museum and tower highly recommended
    Hamad Almadi · August 16, 2015
  • Petros B.
    Good monument to visit and make silly photos around but totally overpriced and unworthy to pay ticket and climb up.
    Petros Bouloumpasis · December 1, 2015
  • Raymond O.
    You didn't travel all the way here just to take a cheesy photo! Climb the tower, see the cathedral and museum it's well worth an additional few euro.

    I'd heard that its best to get tickets from before - but try at the ticket office all the same..we found them very easily.

    Taxi will cost 6-7 euro from/to Pisa Centrale. For returning to the station, you can find a taxi stand near the tower.

    The tower now loans almost 4 degrees, which is equivalent to 4 meters! Impressive!
    Elizaveta Erokhina · April 5, 2015

    The only thing worth visiting in Pisa is the tower itself, the church is nice as well

    Must see even if you just think it's just another tower (leaning). It's artwork!!!
