The Leaning Tower of Pisa
The towers popularity is obvious from the millions that visit it each year. There’s no denying visitors are here for that 800 year old town that is famously leaning and its popular amongst Italians as well as tourists alike.
Be-lavie Tip: This site is not just about taking a photo holding up the tower, that you see many do. It’s far more than that. It’s definitley worth learning about the history of the town, why it is crooked and definitley worth a visit inside. Additionally it is most definitely worth buying your tickets online beforehand rathe than via the ticket touts in the area.
The leaning tower of Pisa is eight storey’s high and was originally built to serve as the Cathedrals bell tower, do note that the bells no longer ring. The leaning of the tower is suggested to be around 5.5 degrees however, it may actually be less as there has been extensive work undertaken to try and stabilise it.
We would thoroughly recommend climbing the 297 steps to catch some great views of Pisa and beyond. It is quite pricey however this is maybe one of the most famous landmarks in Italy and you’re already there so why not discover the internal structure and workings.
Some recommended tours where you can book your timed slot as well as ‘skip the line tickets’ to make the most of your day, especially if you’re short of time.
Some Leaning Tower of Pisa Ticket Options & Tours
Why does the Leaning Tower of Pisa tilts? The tower’s construction started in 1172 and during its construction it became apparent that the ground beneath the towers foundation were not stable. In the following 200 years, architects and builders have made numerous adjustments to the tower but they haven’t managed to stop the tilting and now there is much focus focused upon not making the tower collapse. So, you can argue that it is a Pisa visit must!
Why Is the Leaning Tower of Pisa Still leaning? In 2008 a group of engineers stabilised the tower to ensure that it didn’t lean any further, so now it will remain at the current angle.
Why is the leaning tower of Pisa so famous? This is mainly for its unintended tilt, the tower took nearly 200 years to build and is 56 metres in height. Five years after its completion it started to tilt.
The rotunda shaped, 12th century Battistero di San Giovanni was the second building to be constructed within the Campo den Miracoli complex. The extrerior is superbly intricate however the inside is the opposite and not what you may expect judging from what you see on the outside.
Be-lavie Tip: Every 30 minutes, one of the guardians sings for a few minutes which gives absolutely magical acoustics in this building. Its worth hanging around to hear this and we recommend heading to the upper gallery area for this.
On the second floor, there’s a window which looks down onto the front of the Cathedral and Piazza die Marcoli – this is the shot, so don’t miss it, and take the shot!
The Duomo di Pisa is truly the gem of the Piazza die Miracoli. It’s grandeur and craftsmanship on the outside meets that of the inside. It was erected in 1092 and look out for the gold ceiling and very detailed carvings of Giovanni Pisano’s seminal pulpit. It’s pretty peaceful here, especially if you visit early or as soon as you arrive in Pisa. Take your time looking at the pillars and interesting angles of the building working in harmony with the other edifices in the square.
The Old cemetery is the final building of the Piazza die Miracoli and is made up of sculptures, sarcophagi and frescoes. It’s rumoured that the Camposanto is built on sacred soil brought back to Pisa from the third crusade and Golgotha. The Campasnto is also known as the place of final rest for religious and holy figures.
Santa Maria Della Spina
Pisa is full of churches as you’d expect in any Italian city. But by far one of the prettiest and cutest you’ll see is the Santa Maria Della Spina. It is located on the edge of the Arno, a little way up away from the historic centre. Dating back to the 1200s Santa Maria Della Spina sits at the banks of the River Arno and its tiny size makes it quite unique. Also it is said, that once upon a time long, one the thorns from Jesus’ thorn crown rested here.
