Leaning Tower of Pisa at Tuscany, Italy



The Leaning Tower of Pisa or also known as Torre pendente di Pisa in Italian, is situated quite outskirt of the city of Pisa thus, you can get there by public transportation like bus or taxi (cab), if you are familiar with the route or simply join the tour group.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is located behind the Cathedral and in front of the Baptistry. Majority of the tourists would take this opportunity to pose for the illusion of photographs like pretending to "hold up" or "push down" the leaning tower through the principle of forced  perspective.

Since the Leaning Tower of Pisa is always overcrowded with tourists every day thus, it's recommended to purchase the entrance ticket(s) via online in advance if you plan to climb the Leaning Tower. Currently, a ticket costs €15 to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa. If you purchase advanced ticket via online, there is an additional €2 charges, which means the total cost would be €17 for every online ticket. You can check the availability of the visiting hours and book the ticket(s) through this official website here:

However, for those who have limited time to stay there, you can take this opportunity to take as much photographs with your creative illusion pose perspective with the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Otherwise, you can enjoy the nice weather with the most popular Italian Gelato ice-cream or shop for cheap souvenirs at the local retail stalls.
