About the Pisa Tower Family Tour

Find your guide at the meeting point and take a family photo, maybe pretending to “straighten” the tower with your hands and hear how the Tower of Pisa is one of the emblematic monuments of the Tuscany region.

It is one of the monuments that make up the “Piazza dei Miracoli” (Place of Miracles), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Following multiple renovations during the 20th century to prevent collapse, some believe that the tower will be able to stand for another 300 years.

Originally constructed in 1173 under the direction of architect Bonanno Pisano, the Tower of Pisa is the campanile (a bell tower, typically Italian and Catholic, used to call faithful ones to prayer and usually erected next to a church or cathedral) for the Pisa Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption. It is considered one of the masterpieces of Romanesque Art in Tuscany.

Constructed mainly of marble, it is best known for leaning southwards at an angle of 3.59 degrees. The cause of the incline is not agreed upon. Some argue that a calculation error while laying its foundation pushed the tower into the ground; others believe that it leans because of ground subsidence related to marl, a loose and crumbly rock.

During the tour, you will be able to climb the tower’s 297 steps to the summit and observe the surrounding buildings from the top. At the end of your visit, rest for a moment on the grass and contemplate the technical prowess of the men of the 12th century and all they were able to accomplish without power tools.
