About the Leaning Tower of Pisa

One of the world’s most recognisable architectural marvels, the Leaning Tower of Pisa has captivated visitors for centuries with its perplexing lean. Sitting at a jaunty angle in the serene surroundings of the Piazza dei Miracoli, the tower is a testament to both human ingenuity and the unpredictability of nature. 

Construction began in the 12th century and took over two centuries to complete. However, even during its early stages, it became apparent that the tower was leaning, a result of the soft ground on which it was built. Over the years, various attempts were made to stabilise and correct the lean, and today the tower is secure yet maintains the fault that makes it so distinctive. 

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a remarkable example of Romanesque architecture, characterised by elegant arches, intricate detailing, and a white marble façade. As you approach the tower, you'll be struck by its gravity-defying tilt. A photo of you ‘holding it up’ is an almost compulsory souvenir. Beyond its structural peculiarity, the Leaning Tower offers you the opportunity to climb the 251 steps to the top. You’ll be rewarded with panoramic vistas of Pisa’s cityscape, including the adjacent cathedral and baptistry. 

Things to know before you go 

  • It’s best to book tickets for the Tower in advance. This can be done from 20 days prior up until the day before your visit. 

  • Tickets for the Tower are at set times and limited in number, you must choose your timeslot when you buy your ticket. 

  • Children under 8 are not allowed to climb the tower. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. ID as proof of age may be requested. 

  • Tickets are valid only on the day and time specified. Late arrivals will not be able to enter, and tickets will not be refunded.  

  • All bags must be left at the cloakroom during your visit. 

  • Allow about 30 minutes to climb the Tower and spend some time at the top admiring the views. 

  • Climbing the Tower is quite hard work – 251 steps which are uneven and slippery. 

Opening Hours 

The Tower is open every day from 09:00 to 20:00.  

In the summer months, usually mid-June until the end of August, the Tower has extended evening opening until 22:00. 

The other monuments in the complex, the cathedral, the baptistry and the Gothic Camposanto cemetery, sometimes operate varying opening hours depending on times of worship. 

How to get there 

The Leaning Tower of Pisa and the surrounding Campo dei Miracoli are located in the north of the historic centre of Pisa.  

  • By train: Pisa Centrale is the city’s main railway, and it is well-connected to major cities in Italy. From Pisa Centrale, you can take a local bus or go on foot to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which is about a 20-minute walk away. The airport is also connected to the city centre by train. 

  • By bus: Several bus lines run directly to the Piazza dei Miracoli, where the Leaning Tower is located. Look for bus lines with stops near the tower or Piazza del Duomo. 

  • By car: If you’re driving, keep in mind that private vehicles are not allowed in the immediate vicinity of the Leaning Tower. However, there are paid parking areas available nearby, such as the Parcheggio Via Pietrasantina and the Parcheggio Via Paparelli. From there, you can walk or take a shuttle bus to reach the tower. 

  • By bicycle: There are bicycle rental services available in the city centre. You can park your bike in designated areas and then walk to the Leaning Tower.

Get ready to visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa

How much time do I need for visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

Visiting the inside of the tower usually requires no more than 30 minutes, but to fully appreciate the Campo dei Miracoli and explore the tower’s surroundings, it is recommended to allocate at least 2-3 hours, especially if you plan to visit the other monuments. However, if you’ve a deep interest in architecture and history, you may want to dedicate more time to thoroughly immerse yourself in one of Italy’s most emblematic landmarks. 

What are the best ways to visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

If you’ve limited time or wish to enhance your visit, guided tours provide in-depth knowledge and ensure you don’t miss any significant details. Knowledgeable guides will lead you through the tower’s history and give you the lowdown on the neighbouring architectural marvels. Guides do not usually accompany you inside the tower. 

When is the best time to visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

To avoid large crowds, visiting during the low season, from November to March, may offer a quieter experience with fewer visitors. If you plan to visit during the high season – April to October – booking tickets in advance and visiting during the first or last hour of the day can help you avoid the busiest times.

Is the tower’s lean still getting worse?

Not now, but until a straightening project undertaken between 2001 and 2008 was completed, the lean was worsening at a rate of more than 1mm per year. After the intervention of engineers, the tower’s lean was reduced by nearly 50cm, and it’s now stable.
