Intersting to see close up - and there was an exhibition in the adjoining building (interesting interior renovation) - but a shame that the tower was closed. Look out for the Medici boatyards on the way there, and worth crossing the river to see the...More

The tower was built at the beginning of the 15th century, during the Florentine domination. It was named as an opposite of the older Ghibelline Tower. It offers the views as far as the sea shore and is well worth the visit.

This is a ruin which is not exactly looked after and just stands there looking a little sorry for itself. Ok we saw it and then moved on.

If you walk out here you can see the huge thick wall of the old city. It crosses the river just in front of the tower and turns left away from the city for a while.

This is the angle to actually gauge how much the tower is leaning. If you looked at it by itself or without a 90 degree angle object to compare it with, it's hard to see.
