Visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa


Added by Laura Hill

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is renown worldwide for its almost four-degree tilt, the result of being built with an unstable foundation.

This is perfect stop on your Italian vacation, with lots of great shops and restaurants (I had the best pizza of my life in a restaurant with a view of the tower!).

The green space surrounding the tower is a great place to relax, take a few photos and people watch.  

Make sure to also wander the town of Pisa itself, which is charming and filled with friendly locals.

Mostly hype, however the rest of Pisa is wonderful

The Tower of Pisa is so well-known that ok, it is impossible to be in the city and not visit it. And from up close, it is a pretty nice (and bizarre) monument, but that's it. So many tourists trying to take photos, that you are struggling. On the other hand, Pisa was a revelation. It is a really lively city with so many nice squares and neighborhoods that it is a shame to visit Pisa just for the tower. Dont forget to try the food and the local wines!

Cool but touristy

We took the cheesy photos and wandered around for a bit, then sat down at a cafe to wait for the rest of our tour group to reassemble. That cafe ended up telling us that their machine broke so they needed to write the receipt by hand and ended up charging us 16 euros for a scoop of gelato? Uh ok...
