Discover the distinctive and world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Built in 1173, the tower briefly stood straight up. However, it wasn't long before, as a result of slightly too soft soil and inadequate foundations, it began to lean. At its highest point, the tower reaches about 56 metres. The tower has an inclination of 3.97° and in the 1990s was the subject of threats by the Italian mafia to blow it up.
