Pisa

Pisa is famous for its unique buildings and Pisans claim that the Campo dei Miracoli, the`Field of Miracles`is among the most beautiful squares in the world. Among the masterpieces here are the Duomo, Baptistry and the Campanile ( Leaning Tower) The world famous Leaning Tower of Pisa was built on sandy silt subsoil and started to tilt even before the third storey was completed in 1274. The Tower was completed in 1350 despite the shallow foundations. Today the tower is almost 4.1m off the perpendicular. In 1406, the city fell to Florence and under the Medici, the arts and sciences flourished. Galileo Galilei taught at the university.
