Photographer's Note

Although it is no longer open to the public for obvious safety reasons, the famous tower is still worth a quick visit. There is an impressive cathedral beside it too as compensation for the lack of a view from the top floors. Taken at blue hour. Engineers and architects have done as much as they can to stabilize the foundations and prevent the tower from leaning any more and eventually toppling.

Correction: The tower is still open to the public, but only between 10 am & 5 pm in summer months & 6pm in winter. For a full description of opening times throughout the year, please see the link at the bottom. The bileti (ticket office), was long closed by the time I arrived from Florence. http://www.towerofpisa.info/Visit-Tower-of-Pisa.html
