2-The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Pisa, Italy – Private

Famous for its tilting one side, the Tower of Pisa, located in Pisa, Italy has a height of over 180 feet and features 8 floors.

It was built between 1173 and 1372. Its construction occurred in 3 stages across 199 years. Because it is such an important monument for the Italian city, the ’tilt’ will remain intact.

You may wonder why it’s leaning. It began to sink after the second floor was built in 1178. Its foundation was set in weak, unstable subsoil. The 7th floor was built by Tommaso di Andrea Pisanom in 1319, giving some Gothic elements.

Annually, over a million visitors come in Pisa just to see the famous leaning tower.
