Pisa

Rated:

An iconic landmark and a must visit. We had quite a few locals trying to sell us merchandise whilst we queued. Queue wasn't too long, price seemed fair.

One of the most famous sights

Rated:

As a frequent adventurer and sight-seer the leaning tower is obviously on a list of must visit sights. I was a little shocked at how small Pisa is as a place but highly impressed at the close nature of its main sights which are all carrying the same style. The tower has more of a lean than i first thought and you can grasp that when inside... i recommend going into the tower even if the price may seem high.

An Italian landmark

Rated:

Visited as part of a package with the other local sights. Surprised with how much the tower actually leans as some pictures don't do it justice. A landmark of Italia.
