Information

About Pisa

Pisa, with its leaning tower is one of Italy's must-sees. All the main sites lie in the northwestern angle of the city walls, around the well-named Campo dei Miracoli (the Field of Miracles).

The famous Torre Pendente, the Leaning Tower, is still standing but is closed to the public until at least summer 2001. The dramatic tilt, caused by building on too shallow foundations in unstable, silty soil, has finally been staunched by international engineers. The tower has been anchored to the square by means of 90-metre (300-ft) steel cables, while almost 10 cubic metres (350 cubic ft) of soil has been removed from the north side of the base.
