The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most famous (and touristy) monuments of Italy. Its beauty is universally acknowledged and honestly it is a quite a sight when you first see it because it leans (duh)!! The fact that it defies gravity is something very interesting. The stark white color of the tower is splendid and gives a gorgeous feel to the whole square known as “Piazza dei Miracoli” (Square of Miracles). The square proudly boasts a cathedral, a baptistery and a cemetery.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is worth visiting if you are in Italy but the thought of climbing top of the leaning tower (296 steps) to see the town of Pisa is not for everyone. Not only is it very costly at a whopping EUR18 but it makes you feel dizzy. Also, children below 8 years aren’t allowed to climb so note that. Anyhow, if you are brave to spend that money, go and feel the “lean” during the climb of 296 steps. Once you reach the top, the town of Pisa looks exceptional!
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.
