TOWER OF PISA TICKETS: HOW TO BOOK
The entrance to the Tower of Pisa is allowed for 40 people at a time, so it is practically impossible to find tickets available on the day you visit it.

But don’t forget that the Tower of Pisa is located inside Piazza dei Miracoli, where the Baptistery and the Cathedral represent the highest point of Gothic and medieval architecture.
It would be a real pity to climb the Tower of Pisa and not enter the Baptistery and the Cathedral. This is why there is a single ticket for all the other monuments in Piazza dei Miracoli.

TOWER OF PISA TICKETS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE GOING UP
The Tower of Pisa was built starting in 1173 and from the beginning the problems of land subsidence manifested that gave it that particular inclination.
So before getting on, you need to know that there are 294 steps to reach the top and there are no elevators.
If you suffer from claustrophobia or you have some cardiovascular and motor pathology you should not go up, because the steps are slippery and quite inclined in some places.
Also for this reason, children under the age of 18 cannot climb if they are not accompanied by an adult.
For security reasons, bags and luggage must also be left in a special wardrobe and you can collect them at the end of the visit, which will last a maximum of 30 minutes.
