How far is Leaning Tower of Pisa from train station

We arrive at the Pisa airport at 1:30 p.m. from London on a Wednesday in June. We are staying in Florence and plan on getting there via train. How far is the Leaning Tower from the airport/train station and is it worth the time? We would have to store our luggage before heading there. We do not have train tickets yet to Florence as I am assuming we do not need to get those ahead of time. Thanks.

Whether or not it is worth it depends on your desire to see it. It is anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes walking depending on your pace. Taxis or buses will get you there sooner, both are available at the main train station. Train tickets to Florence are easily bought on the spot.

Thank you! Can we store our luggage at the airport then head to the tower? Also, how do we catch the train to Florence? Thanks in advance.

When arriving in Pisa is the train station attached or close to the airport?

The airport is attached to Pisa centrale by a 5 min train ride. There are more trains from Pisa centrale to Florence than direct from the airport. Therefore, it makes sense to take the train from the airport to centrale, then drop your bags there and walk to the tower, walk back, pick up your bags and catch a train from centrale to Florence.
