The leaning tower was absolutely amazing. You see so many pictures of it and they all kind of become cliche’. You’ve seen one you’ve seen them all. I think the most important thing is to actually see it with your own eyes. We traveled the entire day by train to this little city that I don’t even remember the name. We then rented a car and drove through the mountains all the way to Pisa. When you get there and walk around the corner and see this international icon standing in front of you its absolutely amazing. Its completely unexpected. You just don’t exactly know what to expect. But I do believe it completely exceeded my expectations.
Because we were limited on time we didn’t get to stay that long. I think we ate some Gelato (go figure) and then went back to our hotel. There are several other buildings around Pisa that I wish we could have explored or just walked around the city a bit. All in all it was well worth the road trip to get there. If I could do it again I’d probably stay a couple of days in Pisa.
Oh…forgive the leaning tower selfie….ya got to get one 🙂 I’m actually happier in real person 🙂
