Book your tickets for the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Advance

This means you risk showing up, waiting in line to get tickets and still not being to climb the steps to the very top of this incredible UNESCO World Heritage monument in Pisa. The construction on the Leaning Tower of Pisa started in 1173 and lasted for almost 200 years but the tilt was evident almost from the beginning!
Even today, after many successful and unsuccessful attempts to compensate for the tilt, the bell tower to the Cathedral of Pisa still tantalizes its admirers worldwide with its 8 stories of white and gray marble. It is a monument that is definitely worth a visit not only for the unique tilt but for its grace and beauty of the tower and admiring the Square of Miracles from above.
