Pisa Views

Yes, it is possible to climb to the top of the leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. You just don’t pose like you’re saving the leaning tower from falling with your tiny hands but you have to climb and see what’s up there. The views aren’t really impressive but climbing a leaning tower is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You don’t get to experience that anywhere else, right? Perhaps, this might be the only leaning tower you’d ever climbed on.

Before Climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa

First, you have to buy a ticket. The ticket booth is on the left side, across the green lawn. When buying, choose a time that’s convenient for you. They limit the number of people going up there for security reasons. When you’ve paid, go to the room next door and leave your things in a locked safe. They won’t allow backpacks or bags. Just bring your camera, phone or valuable things, like your wallet. Be sure to line up 10-15 minutes before your time.

Leaning Tower

This leaning tower of Bologna leans more than the leaning tower of Pisa. The former leans 4 degrees and the latter at 3.97 degrees. Yep, it’s just a tiny difference, really, right? However, the fame of the leaning tower of Bologna is eclipsed by the leaning tower of Pisa. Maybe, it’s because the Bologna tower doesn’t really possess the architectural beauty that we are used to seeing, compared to that of the tower in Pisa.
