La Torre di Pisa

The Torre (tower) is open. The tours are Strictly on the Hour & half hour. They ONLY allow 15 people at a time & you MUST come back out within the 30 minutes. Like most attractions in Europe, it is best if you buy your tickets in advance. You get better rates & are guaranteed to get in. Beware, some on-line ticket sources are not a good deal. For the tower, it is best to buy online from the genuine website.
