Pisa

Hi everyone! Today’s post is pictures of Pisa!

We left the Florence train station mid-morning.

Pisa, which is most known for it’s leaning tower, also has a large church and baptistry built in the Medival ages. Surprisingly, they do not look gothic, which was the traditional style of the time.  They have more of a Renaissance appearance.

This is the front of the baptistry.

This is a view of the Church and Baptistry from the top of the leaning tower!

And now for the leaning tower! It really does lean!

The tower will not fall over because they have poured cement into the ground underneath!

Look at the amazing ice cream! 😉

Actually, a nice tourist gave me an ice cream cone which was perfect for a funny photo!  It was super hot so if I’d had any gelato it would have melted in seconds!

I did get to go up the leaning tower!!!!! My favorite part was climbing it because I had a weird sense of vertigo, as the stairs were somewhat leaning too! (you can’t really see it in this photo.

To reach the top level, I had to climb a small spiral staircase!  Because so many people use them they are slippery and quite hard to walk on.

Here is some cool architecture at the top.

The view was great! We were hoping we could see the sea from the top, but it was too far away.

On the top, I sat on the side that was leaning.  After a while, we climbed down and went back to Florence.

Do you like the photos? Which is your favorite? Have you been to Pisa too?

Thanks for reading!
