Italy's celebrated leaning Tower of Pisa has reopened to tourists again, three months after closing due to coronavirus.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

First to climb the more than 280 steps were 10-year-old Matilde and her father Roberto, Ansa news agency reports.

The reopening comes as badly-hit Italy eases its lockdown measures.

Visitor numbers are being restricted to 15 at a time at the monument, which, along with surrounding attractions, normally draws five million annually.

Tourists have to wear face masks and an electronic device which sends out signals and sounds if anyone gets within a metre of anyone else.
