The wonder-of-the-world that is the Leaning Tower of Pisa - Torre Pendente - is the free-standing bell tower - campanile - of Pisa's cathedral, one of the trilogy of stunning buildings in the Piazza dei Miracoli, the 'Square of Miracles', named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.
It is strongly recommended that you book in advance should you wish to ascend the Tower of Pisa ... access is strictly limited and showing up on the offchance is likely to see you having a long wait to find an opening time, if indeed it is not already fully sold-out - not uncommon at peak season. Note that it's not possible to confirm bookings that are more than 45 days in the future, but please go ahead and order your tickets and we'll place them on back-order for you, confirming them as soon as the 45 days falls due - a safe way to ensure you'll get to visit on the date and time you want.
We provide standard entrance tickets as well as a visit as part of a Pisa guided tour, with all tickets meaning you don't need to joing any long queues to buy tickets on the day; the buttons below will give greater detail on what we offer throughout the year, but it doesn't follow that they're always available ... many are seasonal, some only run on certain days of the week, so please do use our calendar above to check availability!
We have a page with visitor information should you fancy some background colour. If you happen to be based in Florence then we offer two excursions from there - a trip to visit the tower of Pisa and a day trip that takes in both Pisa and Lucca.
The Leaning Tower is open seven days a week and the opening hours are typically:
For standard tickets, your visit will last approximately 30 minutes, and it IS permitted to use cameras and videocameras. Children under the age of 8 are not permitted to climb the tower.
