How to draw a leaning tower of Pisa step by step

The leaning tower of Pisa is as famous a landmark of Italy as, for example, the Eiffel tower in France. This construction is also called the falling tower because of its tilt. Lately, it was really falling but thanks to new technologies, the tower will stand for a very long time.

To interest the child, you can tell him or her the following:

  • The falling tower was being built for about 200 years.
  • The leaning tower of Pisa is a regular cylinder with a spiral staircase inside. Despite its popularity, few dare to climb up, although the ticket is inexpensive.
  • There are seven bells in the tower, each of which is in tune with one note.
  • The square where the attraction is built is called the Square of Miracles.
  • There was built an exact copy of the leaning tower in the American city, though much less.

And now it’s time to draw the falling tower.
