Pisa, Italy

Tower Lean CroppedAfter our fast and incomplete day in Rome, we made a stop in Pisa, Italy. We didn’t take a tour so it took a little creative traveling to get there (walk, bus, and train). Really Pisa didn’t offer a lot so we spent our time at the Square of Miracles. It’s where the Leaning Tower of Pisa is (if you didn’t already know — I didn’t).

It turned out to be a nice, relaxing time there. The Tower was enormous — much bigger than I ever expected. And it was beautiful. Some say that if it weren’t leaning, it’d be nothing special. I beg to differ. That tower was pretty magnificent in it’s own right. But of course the lean is what makes it so interesting to stare at.

Cathedral and BaptisterySo we did. We walked along, took those dumb photos like everyone else, and had a coffee and snack outside a cafe with a great view of the Tower and the Cathedral there. After some shopping and wandering around, we headed back to the ship. It was a good day.

I have a sampling of our photos from our day in Pisa. You can view the set or slideshow.
