PISA

by loveleenah

HI We will reach pisa on saturday midnight and have hotel reservation near pisa leaning tower. IN morning we have to see pisa leaning tower. And then catch the flight at 12:00 afternoon from Pisa florence PSA airport. Is it possible or we should skip the plan to see pisa leaning tower :(

Re: PISA

by mccalpin

Are you talking about THIS Saturday night? From April to September, the Tower opens at 8:30 in the morning. Assuming that you want to be at the airport by 10:00 a.m., this gives you an hour to see the Tower, then 30 minutes to walk back to the hotel, grab your luggage, get a taxi, and go to the airport, which is tight, but doable.

Two caveats:
1. The Tower is admission by timed ticket only. That is, you have to have a ticket good for a certain time to get in. You can't just show up at the Tower any more and expect to get in without waiting, perhaps, hours for an opening. Do you already have such ticket? Hmmmn, I see on the official website that if you buy online, it has to be at least 15 days in advance, so this Saturday would be out (see http://www.opapisa.it/en/plan-your-visit/plan-your-visit.html). Well, you can try your luck Saturday morning and be there by 8 a.m. or earlier to see if you get lucky.

2. Hmmmn, this may not be a problem - since these are timed tickets, you are limited on how long you can be in the Tower. However, the website says your visit to the Tower (the inside, that is) is limited to 30 minutes (see http://www.opapisa.it/en/plan-your-visit/practical-information/warnings.html), so if you were able to get in at 8:30, you'd be clear by 9:15 for sure, so maybe not a problem - if you get in at 8:30...

The good thing about Pisa's tower is that you don't have to actually pay for a ticket to enjoy it. If you don't have much time, just enjoy the tower from the outside. You can spend as little or as much time as you like on the grounds of the church where the tower is located without buying the ticket to actually go up the tower.

I agree with DueSer. While staying in Florence in 2007, I hopped a train late one afternoon and got to Pisa in one hour, took a cab to the Tower. I got my pictures of the Tower during sunset, then walked along the Arno back to the train station. It would be tragic to have been so close, and not to have even viewed it from the outside.

if you are planning on coming back to italy, then do not overbear yourself with the tower - make your trip a vacation to be enjoyed - if it going to be troublesome pass on it - you go so you can come back.

Travel Tips for Pisa

The Tower

by Sharrie

The only 'big' attraction in this town is the tower. Since we are all here for it, we should at least have some facts here. Right?

Ok, the Leaning Tower is in fact part of a magnificent ensemble of cathedral, baptistery, bell tower & cemetry. It was built in 1173 & the original architects were Bonnano Pisano & William of Innsbruck.

Some have speculated that the tower was intended to lean but the more probable explanation would be the less than solid ground which the designers knew & therefore provide some allowance for this in their plan!

Money....

by daarth

As most backpackers in the 70’s, we had little money. It cost a bundle to get into the tower, so we just enjoyed it from the outside. I didn’t really mind as it was great just being there and seeing it. It was also a great pastime watching other people looking at the tower. It hardly ever fails. They look up, and then they tilt their head. They always tilt their head the same way the tower is leaning! I never saw a person tilt their head the other way. The morale? I don’t have the faintest clue… In fact I don’t know why I am writing this lol

Campo dei Miracoli

by KiNyA

I liked the enterance to the Campo dei Miracoli. These doors separate Campo dei Miracoli from the rest of Pisa. Behind the wall there are several stalls where Africans sell their products and souvernirs.

Shoes to climb the Tower & Miscellaneous

by sue_stone

A suitcase with wheels or a back pack is recommended when travelling throughout Italy. If you make it to Pisa you must climb to the top of the Leaning Tower!

It is not too hard a climb.....but I wouldn't want to do it in high heels, so make sure you bring some practical shoes! If you are anything like me you will take numerous photos in Pisa...so make sure you bring adequate fils/batteries/cards to cope with the frantic snapping!!

Interior of Santa Maria della Spina

by filipdebont

You can also visit the interior of this beautiful Chapel of Santa Maria della Spina.

Opening hours are from 6.00 till 10.30 and from 15.00 till 18.00 (however this opening times change from time to time).

Entrance fee was 1.50 euro.

The interior looked sober but beautifully.

At first I hoped that I could see the Spine from Christ's Crown of Thorns, which was kept here (said my first guide book), but then afterwards I read in a second guidebook that it is kept in the Santa Chiara near the Duomo.

Nowadays this Chapel is used for temporary expositions.
