Tower

Can you imagine how desperate was Bonanno Pisano, the architect who initiated the construction of the tower of Pisa, when he found out that his work not only wasn't perfect, but it had some defects too? Only 5 years after he started building it, he left the work unfinished, and he will never know that his tower has become one of the most famous and most visited monuments in the world!

History

The construction of this particular and unique bell tower of about 56 metres of height, was started in 1173 by Bonanno Pisano on a Diotisalvi's project. He left it unfinished and it took more then one century to find another architect to proceed with the edification. It was Giovanni di Simone, the next adventurer who tried to straighten the tower, but without any luck. He also left the work unfinished at the sixth floor. Tommaso Pisano was the third and the last architect who brought the work to its final end in 1319 with the addition of the seventh floor and the bell-chamber. At that time, the fame of the Leaning Tower of Pisa was already spreading all over Europe.

Consolidations

During the years the experts have tried several times to straighten the tower or to arrest its progressive slant, but it's proven nowadays that the tower leans, not because of an error in the process of building it, but because of the soft ground present in all the city. Later on, in Pisa have been found some other leaning buildings.

"Leaning Tower is brilliant and well worth booking in advance. Great views of Pisa and its surroundings. The rest of the Piazza dei Miracoli is also superb and good value, particularly the beautiful Camposanto. Just to be aware that finding somewhere to eat at the end of the day can be tricky so worth researching your options if staying beyond 5pm."

"Want to feel like you are a bit off kilter without having to worry to much. Take the 251+ steps up to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and gaze to the east toward firenze or north to Luca. Really paced well so there are not too many people pacing up the stairs. "
