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.
Around the square’s perimeter, you find also the Opera del Duomo Museum and Museum of the Sinopie which is worth a visit.

The ancient City Walls in Lucca
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.
