Create an itinerary including Leaning Tower of 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.

  • The tower is beautiful. I recommend climbing it. You have to buy tickets across the street where you can also purchase tickets to all the attractions near by. The tickets to the tower are time...

  • Actually was more impressive than I expected.. the area was beautifully presented and the cafes and bars were well priced considering they had you exclusively. I know we've all seen photos, you can't get the true feeling of just how far out of perpendicular the building is.
  • An Impressive and recommended visit! A definitely do when in Pisa or Tuscany! You’ll be amazed how much the tower is leaning, its really cool!!! Going up is nice , costs approx 20€. They say that for hundreds of years, the tower was indeed falling and It will lean one more inch about every 20 years so visit before it falls 😀-📍🇮🇹
