I bet everytime you hear Pisa, you think about the Leaning Tower, which is the main monument and the reason why so many people visit this town.
So we arrived at the motorhome Sosta, paid our €12 and settled in, not a bad spot and only 20 minutes walk away from the tower.
After a quick lunch,we took a leisurely walk to the most famous ‘star’ in Pisa, the Leaning Torre di Pisa.
In photos it always felt like the land surrounding the Duomo is so green it almost looks fake, and the angle of the tower itself is almost impossible
It really is quite the site to see, but certainly not for the tower itself, which is just a complete understatement .
We had loads more fun giggling at the various tourist’s posing at the tower, this never gets old does it?
And when everyone is just holding up the tower, we needed to go one better – the jump photo.
So I guess yesterday Instagram was full of people jumping in front of the learning tower !
Well you can either make fun or join in with the fun !
You have to give these people credit, they absolutely take their tower pictures quite seriously and we were just messing around !
What’s interesting, the Tower of Pisa was simply the bell tower of the Dumo It was doomed from the start though and before they even finished construction it began to lean.
For decades, engineers from around the world took a stab at fixing it. In 1989 the tower of Pisa was finally closed to fix the problem. The Tower of Pisa is now saved and still leaning for generations to see for years to come.
But Pisa is a whole lot more interesting than it’s underwhelming tower. To start with the rest of the square, the Campo del Miracoli or the Piazza del Duomo. ( umm notvreally sure what it’s called) . This is an amazing place because next to the tower you can also see the beautiful cathedral or Duomo, the Baptistry and the historic cemetery Camposanto monumentale.
Just to the side you will find Tat heaven, stalls flogging every kind of, well, tat, you could want, each offering the same gumph there must at times be so many punters they all make a decent living.
Moving away from the tower we found the center of this town very charming and beautiful. Full of more tall streets that just entice you to slowly meander….
We spent our evening doing something very boring, we went to Carefour but not for Food we were on the hunt for Snow chains.!
