View of the Romanesque Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Bell tower, Piazza del Miracoli , Pisa, Italy . The Leaning Tower of Pisa (torre pendente di Pisa) or simply the Tower of Pisa is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa, known worldwide for its nearly four-degree lean, the result of an unstable foundation. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is situated behind the Pisa Cathedral and is the third-oldest structure in the city's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo). The height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa is 55.86 metres (183.27 feet) from the ground on the low side and 56.67 metres (185.93 feet) on the high side. The width of the walls at the base is 2.44 m (8 ft 0.06 in). The Leaning Tower of Pisa has 296 or 294 steps; the seventh floor has two fewer steps on the north-facing staircase. The Leaning Tower of Pisa began to lean during construction in the 12th century, due to soft ground which could not properly support the structure's weight, and it worsened through the completion of construction in the 14th century. By 1990, the tilt of the tower had reached 5.5 degrees .
