The Leaning Tower is totally beautiful. I was picturing something shabby and worn-down and just not that interesting. Wrong! It's fantastic. The climb up on a sweltering summer day is probably not for everyone, but if you're even considering a day-trip to Pisa, do it.
The other thing is that it's not just the Leaning Tower. The tower is part of the Campo dei Miracoli, or "Field of Miracles." It's a complex of 4 awesome sites that are right next to each other: the Leaning Tower, the Duomo, the Bapistry, and the Camposanto. They really are all exquisite.
