The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most famous (touristy) monuments of Italy and its beauty is universally acknowledged. It is a quite a sight too when you first see it because it leans (duh) and well it defies gravity. It is breathtaking because of it’s stark white color and definitely beautiful! The 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 from inside and get some fantastic shots of the square. However, I must warn you it is for a whopping EUR18 and children below 8 years aren’t allowed to climb.

The “lean” during the climb of 296 steps might make you feel dizzy but it worth the effort when you reach the top! Here are some shots from above:

Despite the beautiful views from the top, 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 and relax with a book and vino.
