Europe, Italy, Travel

A Piece of Pisa

On October 2012, we were heading back to Italy.

Where specifically?

ROME.

But you can probably guess that we’re not going there. YET. There’s just some other places to go to. Like, the famous Galileo Galilei’s experiment in: Pisa!!!

Before I show you that famous ‘Leaning Tower’, here’s what you’ll see too:

Well, it’s nothing much. But this door was somewhat dramatic with a bike leaning on it and a cemented sign ‘CAMBIO CHANGE WECHSEL EXCHANGE’. This is actually the door to Cassa Di Risparmio.

Also in Pisa is the Museo delle Sinopie or the Sinopie Museum.

Here’s the Pisa Baptistery of St. John.

A little close up to see the columns and sculptures of the architecture.

How about this dome, what part of the building is this? (Honestly, I forgot)

Too bad I only got the side view of the Pisa Cathedral.

Aha, from another angle. Now with the leaning tower!

Directly under the tower was a swarm of tourists. And no, I’m not part of that swarm. There I was, not crossing beyond the yellow and black chain.

As I mentioned, we were heading to Rome when Mom suggested to visit Pisa. With much poking, our tour coordinator acquiesced and viola, Pisa. We only had a few hours to spare so we didn’t have lots of time for exploring. Still, we were happy to get an eyeful of it.

I wonder what it feels to stay there at the top.

And back to the road we go. See you on the next city!
