Leaning Tower of Pisa Entry Ticket

Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most famous monuments and symbol of Italy all over the world. 

With its remarkable height and slim body, the Tower of Pisa was in fact perfectly visible from every part of Piazza dei Miracoli (Miracles Square) and probably also from the river Arno. The problem of the inclination is one that has most fascinated and intrigued visitors, art lovers, and experts over the centuries.
