A Payroll Rewards customer is using their rewards points to visit an iconic tourist attraction:  The Leaning Tower of Pisa.     

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a freestanding bell tower in the Italian city of Pisa.  The tower, which is located behind the Pisa Cathedral, is famous for having its noticeable lean ⁠— as a result of being built on an unstable foundation with soft soil.

 

3 Interesting Facts about Leaning Tower of Pisa:

  • Construction of the tower began in 1173 and was completed in 1372.
  • The same soft soil that caused the tower's lean also helped it absorb tremors from four powerful earthquakes in the 1200s.
  • A great deal of effort and reconstruction has been required to keep the tower's lean from worsening over the years.  The tower was not completely stabilized until 2008.
