The Italian city Pisa boasts the unique architectural anomaly- Leaning Tower or the Torre Pendente. This tower is the bell tower of Cathedral of Pisa. In 1173 its construction started, and it started leaning. The ground beneath the tower experienced subsidence because of which the tower started leaning.

How to go

Pisa has the main train station called Pisa Centrale. Trains from Florence, Rome, and Lucca frequently stop at Pisa Centrale. If seeing Leaning Tower is the only itinerary in your list, then the Psa S. Rossore station is much closer to the tower than the main station. Those who arrive at the Pisa Galileo Galilei Airport, prefer bus services to the city which directly take you to Piazza del Miracoli. Keep in mind, though; the airport is not open 24/7.
