Did you know that it tool around 350 years to build the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa? The construction of the tower began in 1173, but it started leaning on one side after five years because of the soft ground on which it was built. During the restoration in 1920, the tower’s foundation was injected with cement to stabilize the leaning. This 8 stories circular tower is made of white marbles with a bell chamber at the top. The tower is located inside the so-called square of miracles which also contains a beautiful cathedral and a baptistery. You can reach the top after climbing 297 stairs to enjoy the best view of the city.
