Construction on the famed bell tower began in 1173, when Pisa was a powerful maritime republic. But it was a monument built on shifting soil. The tower’s south side began to sink even before workers completed its third level. The tower was finished in 1360, still stubbornly tilting – and increasing its fame. Galileo is said to have conducted his revolutionary experiments with falling objects from the off-kilter belfry. The landmark is part of a trio of buildings that dot Pisa’s Campo dei Miracoli, an immense field of lush grass.
The Duomo, its massive Baptistery, and the Leaning Tower – all majestic, creamy marble structures – attest to the city’s former glory and epitomize the Romanesque architecture of northern Italy.

The Museo dell’Opera del Duomo next to the complex holds an impressive collection of artworks and artifacts from the three monuments. Just north of the Duomo lies the Camposanto, a cemetery that supposedly contains soil brought by Crusaders from the Holy Land.

Although heavily damaged by World War II bombing, the cemetery contains the remains of some of Italy’s most intriguing frescoes, including “The Triumph of Death,” an unknown artist’s macabre depiction of Florence during the Plague. Pisa’s historic center is best seen on foot. Visitors can browse the Piazza delle Vettovaglie’s open air market on weekday mornings. There is an antique fair the second weekend of each month at the Ponte di Mezzo. Pisa is on the coast of Tuscany, a region famed for its food, wine and beautiful hill towns. Many people visit Pisa as a day trip from Florence, just an hour by train.
