Leaning Tower in Pisa And as added value we reach the ancient port town of Pisa, the hometown of the great astronomerGalileo, where you can take a close up inspection of the Leaning Tower of Pisa – to see it first hand is breathtaking! We visit the Field of Miracles, Pisa’s centrepiece and stage set – home to the Duomo, the Tower and the Baptistery, all exquisite examples of Pisan Romanesque architecture built in the centuries before Pisa’s enemies, Florence and Siena, built their respective cathedrals. The Leaning Tower is almost 56 meters tall (about 183 ft). Building began in the 1100s but took amost 200 years to complete! It leans at about 4 degrees, making it one of the most famous and iconic buildings not only in Italy but in the world. After restoration work ended in 2001 the tower was opened to the public and today can be climbed. The “field” (indeed the surrounding area is covered in bright green grass) earned its romantic nickname from Italian poet Gabriele d’Annunzio and is testament to the power the city had long ago in the Middle Ages. A wonderful spot to soak in the elegant sights, take creative photographs or wander off down the local streets, the “Fields of Miracles” always succeeds in capturing the imagination of its numerous and passionate visitors.
