The Leaning Tower is really breath taking. The carvings are so intricate it shows what great crafts men were about before computers, electricity and tools you can buy.
The rep was waiting for visitors. The yellow badge was nice and big! She exchanged the voucher and explained protocol. If you are not told (I was) no bags are allowed up the tower they are left in a secure locker next to the ticket office.
Going up the tower was orderly and controlled (number wise) before we were allowed up there was a small talk on the history of the tower.
Be aware the steps are marble and well trodden and can be slippery if you take your eye off the ball !
The lean of the tower can be felt really odd sensation. The wind also made it sway a little.
You get to two viewing areas the best one was the ones with the bells.. Views from here are stunning. You can roam freely and are well rewarded for the climb! its nice to see the setting in a different perspective. The hills beyond looked tantalising. Ah that's for next visit!
You will enjoy the tower its a gentle hour certainly one that will be remembered.
