While in Florence I was given the opportunity to go to Pisa, but of course not without a delay! After a long, HOT, day of touring Florence, my tour group was supposed to take a train to Pisa. Little did we know that the train conductors went on STRIKE. It was near impossible to get out of Florence with no trains running. Luckily we were able to snag a bus after our tour director worked his magic. The bus unfortunately was a couple hours late, leaving us with only an hour and a half in Pisa!
The first thing you have to do when you get to Pisa is to of course take a classic picture of the Leaning Tower. The tower has beautiful Romanesque architecture, and has over 250 stairs!
I learned that Pisa has much more to offer than just the Leaning Tower! There is a beautiful cathedral located in Piazza Dei Miracoli. Next to the Cathedral is the Baptistry, where Baptisms were performed as far back as the 1300’s.
Pisa has so many remarkable landmarks and beautiful architecture. I unfortunately had time cut short, but wish I could have explored more of the Piazza Dei Miracoli. I guess I’ll have to save the Pizza in Pisa for next time.
Ciao for now,
