Owner description: The Tower of Pisa (180 feet in height) was begun in 1173 and, due to its faulty foundation on unstable soil, leans precariously more than 14 feet out of line, preventing visitors from climbing its 300-plus steps to the top.

“Worth a look only...”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

It's definitely worth seeing the tower as it's a unique sight, but if you have limited time in Italy, there's really no reason to stick around Pisa for long. Note that the nearest train station is "Pisa S. Rossore" and not "Centrale" but also note, the street traders seem more prevalent here than most other places in Italy. Our suggestion is to stop and have a quick look but head off to Lucca or something for the remainder of the day.

“A must see!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

THE must see of Pisa and I highly recommend climbing it, too, as it's an unusual experience. As soon as you step in, you will feel strange. Climbing up the stairs was a struggle at times (as in feeling dizzy!) but it was well worth it when you got to the top from which you get a lovely view over the Piazza dei Miracoli and Pisa.
We bought our tickets online a couple of weeks beforehand to avoid any queues.

“It really does l-e-a-n, folks!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

I had seen it in books, on tv, in the movies, but there's something genuine about seeing it in person. The tower leans at a crazy angle and as we walked around the base, we were almost afraid to cross the leaning side. Apart from its glittering facade, here's a perfect example of how a mistake can become a national icon and a giant money-spinner!

“A tower that leans!”
Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

An absolute must see when in Tuscany. We spent the day in Pisa and were not disappointed. The weather was perfect, which made for many perfect photo ops. We did not climb the tower, 15 euro ticket required, but got to experience it just as well from the ground. There were no lines one crowds on our Wednesday visit in early December.
