"the bell of the Campanile" Top 5 Page for this destination More than Campo dei Miracoli Tip by globetrott

More than Campo dei Miracoli, Pisa: 44 reviews and 75 photos


It is funny to hear how many people - including myself until some time ago - have no idea, what the leaning tower was built for !
It very simply was the Campanile ( Bell-tower ) of the Duomo Santa Maria Assunta.

And when the tourists finally are allowed to climb up that Campanile they mostly oversee the bell completely.

It is very close to the place, where you have the 1st open platform and have to enter through the most narrow door of the tower.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
