Florence (Livorno) Leaning Tower of Pisa Excursion Reviews

Visit the infamous Leaning Tower of Pisa, the freestanding bell tower that refused to stay straight. Constructed in stages across 344 years, the Tower of Pisa began sinking into the ground almost immediately.
We made a VERY brief stop to see the tower because we were very late heading back to the ship.
We made a VERY brief stop to see the tower because we were very late heading back to the ship. Took a couple of pictures and warded off the Africans that were trying to hustle us and headed out.

Always wanted to see this beautiful Miracle Square with the Baptistry and Leaning Tower and it didn't disappoint. Loved the whole area despite the number of tourists (visited end of September so not as bad as it probably is at the height of the season). The Baptistry is well worth visiting and managed to catch the Echo Demonstration. The Cemetary is also beautifully tranquil. Well worth the 7 euros entrance fee for the two. Read Less

I had been to Pisa before but had never been inside the tower so this trip appealed to me. Our tour guide was very good and her commentary was very informative. Firstly we went inside the cathedral (ladies need to cover shoulders and backs so anybody who needed it was given a paper cape to wear) after this we had some free time to take photos of the outside of the tower before our allotted time (you can not take any bags or items inside - only a phone/camera and one drink - so we were taken to the lockers to leave our bags). Once inside we climbed the 297 (I think!) steps to the bell tower at the top where we had an excellent view over Pisa. I really enjoyed the experience. Read Less
