Guide was amazing

The tour guide was really enthusiastic and knowledgable and we really liked her, however for the price of the tour, obviously excluding the cost of the tower tickets, I felt it was very expensive.

An amazing way to see the huge gallery, if you go there on your own without knowing anything it can be a bit overwhelming. Our guide showed us all the highlights but also answered any questions we had about other things.

Leaning Tower of Pisa Tickets And Tours

Whether you’ve been to Pisa or not, you’ll have undoubtedly heard about the city’s Leaning Tower. Forming part of the Piazza dei Miracoli (formerly the Piazza del Duomo), the tilting tower is the most iconic site in the city. The 56-meter high stand-alone bell tower, with its drastic 3.9-degree tilt, is a striking sight.


Against all the odds, it seems that building the tower over soft soil was part of an elaborate 800-year plan to put the little town of Pisa on the map. Wait...is that true? Non-ci credo! Of course it’s not true.


Learn the real story of why the Tower of Pisa leans;

Buy your Leaning Tower of Pisa tickets to find out more!


Your visit to Pisa will be incomplete if you do not climb to the top of its leaning tower and feel what it’s like to ascend through its spiral staircase. One of the most famous towers in the world, it is known not for its virtues but for its ‘defects’. The tower inclination leads us to think that one day it can fall, so before it does book your Pisa Tower climb tickets!


Galileo Galilei, during his experiments of mass and speed against gravity, apparently climbed to the top of the bell tower and dropped two spheres of different masses. Find out the truth about his attempt and many more stories of the leaning structure on your Pisa Tower Tour!

Visit Pisa Tower: The Highlights

  • Enjoy spectacular views of the Piazza dei Miracoli when you climb to the top of the tower (there are nearly 300 steps!).

  • Get spooked at the Pisa Cemetery, The Camposanto Monumentale. Prestigious professors of the local University and the Medici family (who ruled over the city back then) were buried there.

  • Study the Pisan Romanesque style of architecture in the Cathedral, built over 100 years before the iconic bell tower.

  • Test out the outstanding acoustics of The Baptistery of St. John the Baptist. Every half an hour, a guardian comes in to intonate a few notes. Stay to listen just how well the sound resonates around the space.

  • Feel like a politician in the medieval times while visiting the Piazza dei Cavalieri. Just a few blocks away from the Piazza, this was the headquarters of the Order of the Knights.

#Pisa Tower Picture Time!


People have been “holding up” the leaning tower for years, and now it’s your turn to jump on the bandwagon. But wait! Why don’t you have fun with it and try different poses and perspectives? Here are some ideas for you:

  • Get yourself a gelato but leave the cone as the last thing you eat. With the tower in the background, hold your cone as the base, so it looks like the tower is the ice cream.

  • Walk around the Square of Miracles to find that perfect angle, then place a straw at the top of the photo, and have your own Pisa Tower drink.

  • The tower is the main attraction, but the beauty of the buildings surrounding it make the tower jealous. Step a little bit further and snap a photo of the whole Piazza dei Miracoli.

Choose your most creative and humorous snap with the tower and post it on your IG. Tag #dotravelgram to be featured!


Leaning Tower Of Pisa Tickets Tips

  • The Leaning Tower of Pisa is located in the Piazza dei Miracoli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is open to the public. But, to climb up and enjoy the spectacular views from the top, a climbing Leaning Tower of Pisa ticket is required.

  • In peak season, tickets to climb the Tower sell out quickly. And, wait times can be upwards of two hours. We recommend buying Leaning Tower of Pisa Tickets in advance online to avoid long waits. Besides, there's a limited number of tickets for each day.

  • Your Leaning Tower of Pisa entrance tickets guarantees you entry into the Cathedral with its immense wealth of artwork, sculptures, and paintings. On the contrary, for The Baptistery of San Giovanni, you must get your Pisa Baptistery tickets separately.

  • If you are interested in a more in-depth experience, a Leaning Tower of Pisa tour is the way to go. No secret will stay untold with an expert local guide!

Leaning Tower Of Pisa: Know Before You Go

  • The queue for the tower is outside and under no cover. In the summer months, bring a bottle of water and a hat. You may be standing in the heat while you wait to get your Pisa Tower tickets.  

  • Be aware that the Tower’s spiral staircase is narrow and pitched at an angle.

  • If visiting during peak season, it is best to book Leaning Tower of Pisa morning tickets or for later in the afternoon. The tower is extremely busy during the day.

  • Pisa is easily reachable by train or bus from other popular Italian destinations. Alternatively, you can make an advance booking a Leaning Tower of Pisa tour from Florence which includes comfortable round-trip transportation and an expert tour guide.

Prepare Your Pisa Tower Visit

  • The climb up the tower is incredibly exhilarating, and it's perfect for you and your family’s day trip! Just note that for safety reasons, children under eight are NOT allowed to climb.

  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing that covers your knees and shoulders. There’s no dress code for Leaning Tower of Pisa visits, but there is for the churches.

  • The Piazza dei Miracoli is near the ancient walls, rather than in the center of the city. To get there you can take Bus lines 3 and 4 that run from Pisa Centrale, the main station, or the Shuttle Bus A – all of these will drop you off near the Tower.
