Unleash your camera. There is literally no place in the city where you'll get more out of your photographs. Milan's grandest and busiest square is surrounded by tremendous architecture on all sides. There's the Gothic Duomo, of course. Across from the cathedral is the monumental arch of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the magnificent 19th century arcade. Then see the Palazzo Meridionale. The arcade of the Palazzo Settentrionale is next. Finish ogling the square with some choice photos of the Statue of Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a United Italy. The people watching isnt' bad either.

It's magnificent and average people are not gonna visit there too many times in their lives, so make the most of your visit. The architecture is so beautiful and the cathedral is enormous. The leaning tower is really something, be aware of slippery floors and stairs. Also, it is not that bad even though I have a fear of heights. I wasn't afraid at all thanks to the high fences.
In general it was better than I expected. The buildings and surrounding areas are well taken care of. Immediately next to these structures there are a few restaurants and the old part of the town. Easy to go and walk around. Even tho there is no entrance fee for the complex, the access to each building is paid, ranging from 4 to 2x euros.
A must see in Pisa but...be aware of pickpockets! Being in this amazing place and been able to enjoy the architecture is such an amazing experience that I cannot tell people to just avoid to go there because of thefts. Just be extra careful. A great experience can turn in to a disaster without you even realizing it and later you’ll find yourself dealing with a stolen camera, cell phone, or a purse with your passport inside. Enjoy the beauty and stay alert!
A wonderful historical place to visit. Amazing architecture. Worth the extra hours to get there from Florence. Was not able to climb up the tower because of time constraints of being in a tour group with a tight schedule but it give me a reason to go back and revisit. Tickets for the tower are available once you get inside the piazza. There is usually a very long line so get in early if you can. Lots of souvenir shops outside. Most are made in China but some are nice (and cheap!) enough to keep as a memento of your visit. You can haggle a little bit but be nice about it. There is a gift shop and a bookshop inside with locally made souvenirs but are a little more expensive. WC's available at €0.50. ALWAYS HAVE CHANGE for WC use. Always. All over Italy. Europe. Always.
Very nice in every way, just like you see in pictures. The only down side is the very high prices. We're taking about 25 euros per person just to go up the tower. And then there's a couple of other monuments you need to go see. I don't think it was worth the price.
