Campo dei Miracoli and the Leaning Tower in Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is surely one of the most famous Italian attractions abroad. It is considered nowadays one of the seven wonders of the medieval world and many tourists come here every year to see it. However, it belong to a bigger architectural complex in this square and it represents the Cahedral’s Bell Tower. It was designed to be perfectly vertical, but it started leaning because of the terrain sinking. Today it is leaning to 13.5 after the last restoration. In fact, in the years many efforts were done to stabilize the building and monitor the situation.

After visiting the magnificient square of Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa, we will move to another historical town, Lucca. This was the hometown of the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini. We will visit the beautiful St. Martin’s Cathedral, a Roman Catholic Church. In this church, the famous Holy Face crucifix is stored.

Lucca has an oval shape and develops around the Roman Amphitheatre square. Many people call it the city with a hundred churches. In fact, you can find many religious building within its walls. The medieval walls around the whole historical centre distinguish Lucca from other Tuscan towns. They do not serve a defensive purpose anymore, but today a green lawn covers their top. It represents quite a big park, where people can walk for 4 km and admire the town from a different perspective. Locals like to walk around Lucca on its wide walls.

We only knew Pisa, so we have choosen this tour to visit the famous Leaning Tower, but we have been impressed by the town of Lucca. It is a typical Medieval Tuscan Town, full of monuments and good food.
Also Montecarlo Village was great, especially its wines!!
We suggest everyone to discover Pisa and Lucca with BellaItaliaTour 😉

We had recently gone on the private tour visiting Lucca, Pisa, Winery in Tuscany with Massimo from BellaItalia tour and all I can say is that if you get a chance to travel to Italy book this guy. He is intelligent, energetic, friendly and truly knows the country extremely well. He made us feel as if we lived there and not outsiders, telling us about oldest and the best restaurants in the area. If you like to learn about the country or simply try assorted Italian food, Max is your guy. All I can say is that he made the experience enjoyable and truly memorable.
