==Torre / Leaning Tower errors==
  
I type this from [[Lucca]], having visited Pisa and the tower today. The information about tickets to climb the tower is completely incorrect. It is not a requirement to pre-book tickets. Luckily I ignored the information on this page and simply caught the train to Pisa, walked to the tower, entered the ticket office, and asked. It was some time after 11.00 am and there were still about 20 free places for the tower visit at 2.00 pm that day. There were several subsequent tower climbs later that afternoon too (I believe twenty minutes allowed for each group to climb the tower.) They did not ask to see our passports, they did not ask for our passport numbers, and did not even ask our names. Also the information about length of queues and duration of wait is also very wrong. You must deposit bags 10 minutes before you are scheduled to climb the tower (the bag deposit is a quick process), and then you join the short queue for your scheduled climb (marked on your ticket - you can't climb any other time) and when it is time for your climb all the people on that climb enter the tower. There's no real wait and there seems to be fewer than 50 people in each group so it really isn't crowded or slow at all. I bought a comsolidated ticket allowing a tower climb (2.00 pm), entry to duomo (amazing, worth seeing), baptistry, an adjacent building housing several tombs, and two museums. These can be entered any time so I did a few of them while waiting for 2.00 pm and the climb. The cost to climb the tower was 15.00 euro; the cost for all other things combined was 10 euro. (Each of the tickets can be bought separately though I think that to see both museums you have to get the combined ticket. The museums are small, but worth seeing. At first I thought the Sinopre museum wasn't up to much, but it does have original costumes from Zephirelli's ''Romeo and Juliet'' on display, so really it is worth getting the combined ticket and seeing all the places. They are all adjacent to the tower so there's no travelling involved. I will update the page properly when I have time to list everything by the proper names with the proper places (I have kept the tickets and have a picture of the price list.) By the way climbing the tower really is amazing much better than I expected and the feeling at the top is incredible (and a little scary!) [[User:Melbased|Melbased]] 13:22, 31 May 2011 (EDT)

== La Lupa Ghiotta/Osteria La Toscana edit reversion ==
 
 
 
[[User:PierrB]], it's understandable from my edit that you think I'm the owner of the restaurant. I was actually travelling in Pisa, and was seriously underwhelmed by the food at La Lupa Ghiotta. So I removed the listing and added another place I'd eaten at recently. Like I said, it's understandable if you don't believe me, but I don't think La Lupa Ghiotta should be in the listings. There are already a few listed restaurants in the same couple of blocks, so I'm OK with leaving La Toscana out.
