The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most famous monuments of Italy and its beauty is universally acknowledged. It is a quite a queer sight when you first see it but it is beautiful! The stark white tower is part of a splendid square called “Piazza dei Miracoli” (Square of Miracles) that proudly boasts a cathedral, a baptistery and a cemetery.
There is an option of climbing top of the leaning tower (296 steps) to see the town of Pisa and get some fantastic shots of the square. Despite a slight “lean” during the climb, the 296 were manageable. I did feel a little dizzy afterwards because the tower defies gravity. But it so worth the effort when you reach the top. The ticket cost is EUR 18.
Despite the fun climb, I found the ticket to be insanely priced. I’d rather recommend you spending time in the piazza below at a Bar or at the lush green lawns annd relax with a picnic or a book.
