Climbing the leaning tower of Pisa was impressive and definitely something we had to do. We were relieved to be able to purchase last minute tickets through Viator and be able to climb the tower in our limited time frame. Although the tickets were far more expensive than through other agents or direct, Viator was the only agent that had tickets available with 3 days notice. Confirmation was fast, picking up the tickets was very easy on the day, and all information was provided in the confirmation email.
Was a bit worried about the meeting place, but she was there earlier than I expected with all the details and tickets.
Great to be able to walk up the tower.
Viator were extremely efficient and professional. I will most definitely use them again and have no hesitation in recomending their services!!! Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Collecting the tickets was a very efficiient process with the rep giving us all the necessary information.
We followed the advice of Lonely Planet who said don't make your first visit to the Leaning Tower during the day! So we went along in the evening, which proved to be really magical, there was hardly anyone around, so you could really take in the atmosphere on the whole cathedral area. We have booked the Leaning Tower tour for the following day and we weren't then put off by heavy crowds. But, we were amazed at how many tourists don't actually go into any of the Duomo Buildings, the cathedral, baptistry and museum were really comfortable to walk around, aswell as beautiful and informative! The Tower Tour was fantastic, though I'm glad there are resting places on the way up all those 294 steps! The views from the Bell tower were fantastic! The effects of the Lean really messes with your senses when you're walking up and down the steps. Fantastic trip in all.
Finding the representative was easy. Just make sure you get there 15 minutes ahead of time as you have to lock up your bags for security reasons. You can still take your camera. It was nice not having to lug up our bags. The climb wasn't too bad and the views were amazing!!!! So worth doing!!!!!!
The guide was about 15 minutes late but was efficient and made sure we knew how to claim our ticket. Entrance to the tower was smooth and we got in almost exactly to the minute our ticket stated.
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.
