Leaning Tower of Pisa Reservations
And is it worth the ticket price to go up the tower?
As for whether it was worth it, well, I can't remember how much it was exactly but even the student price wasn't cheap! (You had to pay a pretty penny to enter the church as well, even more than the ones in Florence, so I didn't on principle- Pisa around the tower was the biggest tourist trap in Europe I encountered and that's saying something!) But there wasn't that much else to do in Pisa and I decided to splurge it and got some nice views of the city- I wrote a post about it here with more detail.
In the past i've opted for a quick hour train layover on the way from Florence to the Cinque Terra to make the bus ride, see the tour/area, and then hop back on the train. I've never been overly impressed with Pisa. That said, it's worth giving yourself some time to explore it. My hunch is that going up the tower is more an "I did it'" story than actual in the moment experience, though I could be wrong.
From my personal experience, I'd always wanted to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa since I read a story about it as a child. Honestly, I feel that just seeing it in person from the ground, is totally fun and amazing. My bf and I were on a budget and didn't purchase the ticket to go to the top- I don't regret it, but I suppose I don't know what I missed either. Like AlexBerger, we just stopped in Pisa en route...on our way from Cinque Terre to Lucca.
