Leaning Tower of Pisa

Piazza del Duomo, 56126 Pisa, Italy
As one of the landmarks in Italy, this tower proves that sometimes even the impossible is possible. The work on this seven-story tower began in 1173. Soon after, in 1178, it became clear that the tower began to top because of the unstable floor below. As a result, the effort was temporarily abandoned. The construction began almost a century later and finally ended in 1319. At that time, the architectural style of the Romanesque into Gothic had changed, as can be seen in the design of the tower. The tower never moved down until its final reconstruction in 2001. Then the structure was stabilized and today it is completely safe to climb it. Please note during your visit that carrying bags in the tower is prohibited. However, there is a nearby cloakroom. There are also long lines before the entry. If you want to avoid this, buy the tickets online in advance. Tickets have to be bought for a certain time.
