Here your guide will hand you maps and list a number of interesting facts about this iconic tower and how it got to its current leaning position since construction began nearly 850 years ago.
The short deep foundation (only 3 meters) and the consistency of the clay mixture underneath took it to the current position, shortly after the second floor of the tower was built.
But you have nothing to fear these days: you can safely climb its stairs as the engineering works carried out in 2008 have stopped the tower from moving further.
What hasn’t stopped it’s the large number of Pisa Pushers that embark in the competition to produce the best photo: relax on the green gardens surrounding the tower and take on your friends and fellow travellers on who gets the best shot!
But Pisa is not just all about its famous tower: the Piazza dei Miracoli itself is a wonderful square that include other iconic monuments and buildings.
