Know More about this tour

Take a family photo and hear how the Tower of Pisa is one of the emblematic monuments of the Tuscany region. As a result, it is one of the monuments that make up the Piazza dei Miracoli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Following multiple renovations during the 20th century to prevent collapse, some believe that the tower will be able to stand for another 300 years. The Tower of Pisa is the campanile (a bell tower used to call faithful ones to prayer and usually erected next to a church or cathedral) for the Pisa Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption. It is best known for leaning southwards at an angle of 3.59 degrees. The cause of the incline is not agreed upon. Some argue that a calculation error while laying its foundation pushed the tower into the ground; others believe that it leans because of ground subsidence related to marl, a loose and crumbly rock.

During the tour, you will be able to climb the towers 297 steps to the summit and observe the surrounding buildings from the top. Your tour also includes a visit to the Square of Piazza dei miracoli.

    Entrare in questa piazza è come assistere ad un miracolo. Sicuramente una delle Piazze più belle d’Italia. C’era anche pochissima gente. Quel verde accecante del prato ed il tramonto ad illuminare il cielo sulla Torre di Pisa, sulla Cattedrale e sul Battistero. Meraviglioso. Un piacere per gli occhi e per il cuore. Bellissimo l’interno della Cattedrale e veramente emozionante l’ascesa sulla Torre di Pisa. La Piazza vista dall’alto è sublime.

    True. The Leaning Tower was something that needed to be seen. Othervise not worth. a visit. Looks mora like an African bazar with fakes and selling drugs on the street. You have no impression at all that you are in Italy. Municipality should "clean up" the town.
