Product Description

Product Description

Construction of The Leaning Tower of Pisa started in 1174, but was not completed until the 14th century. But use the 216 high quality plastic puzzle pieces contained in this set, and construction can be completed in no time at all! You can either assemble your building “by eye” (using the printed design representing the carved stonework), or you may prefer to refer to the reference numbers printed on the reverse side of the pieces. Put the pieces together in sequence and see this amazing bell tower appear before your eyes (it even "leans" like the original!). This would make an excellent pastime or gift for someone interested in architecture or tourism, a lovely memento of a visit to Pisa and may appeal to traditional puzzle fans after a new challenge. We reckon it might just appeal to those who enjoy model railways too … a really unusual way to introduce substantial international 3D buildings to an existing set up. Comes with a baseboard for display.

Product Description

Ravensburger - 3D Puzzle Pisa Tower

Experience puzzling in the 3rd Dimension!

Now the fun puzzle grows in height! The uniquely-shaped plastic puzzle pieces fit together perfectly thanks to the Easy Click Technology and form stable structures, without glue. Optional accessories complete the famous sights.

The tower known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side. Construction of the tower occurred in three stages across 199 years.

It is situated behind the Cathedral and is the third oldest structure in Pisa's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo) after the Cathedral and the Baptistry. The tower's tilt began during construction, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft on one side to properly support the structure's weight.

Now you can have your very own tower of Pisa!

Includes: 216 puzzle pieces, tools, and a handy guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Torre di Pisa 27 Aug 2012
By Andromeda Descendent TOP 1000 REVIEWER

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've become a big fan of the Ravensburger 3D landmark series and have bought most of them by now, and will probably keep on going.

Unlike the Big Ben and Eiffel Tower models, the Leaning Tower of Pisa has no hinged pieces, and is made up entirely of curved pieces. It's a lot easier to put together, maybe the easiest of the set, but it is also the one that works best as a traditional jigsaw - i.e. judging what goes where by the pattern rather than by the numbers on the back of the pieces.

I've read a couple of reviews of models in this series that complain about the numbers on the back of the pieces, as if that somehow makes it less of a puzzle. To my mind, the numbering actually increases the challenge as there are a number of pieces that are identically shaped and could fit in a few different places, so making sure it all fits together in the right order takes longer and is therefore a way of increasing the value for money.

It also has in its favour the best stand of the landmarks series - rather than tabs that are too small to hold the model securely on a cardboard base, you build it around a sturdy plastic base, and it's not going to fall over at the slightest knock, as the others are prone to.

The plastic pieces all fit together so well that once assembled it is absolutely smooth and works well as a traditional model for displaying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaning Tower of Piza 3D Puzzle 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
Very good quality puzzle/model. My 10 year old put this together in about 30 minutes using the numbers on the back of the pieces. It's too hard to put together without the numbers but very easy using them. This one was much easier than Big Ben. Looks great when it's finished.

This is a wedding present for our grandaughter and her soon-to-be husband- he proposed to her on an Italian holiday in front of the leaning Tower of Pisa. My grandson has made it for them and will give it to then at their wedding in 2 weeks time. We are very pleased with it, and we are sure the newly-weds will be too!
