Arriving on a misty grey day can really give you a bad impression of a city, especially if you’re only visiting for a short time. So after arriving to this:
It was nice to be bid farewell by this.
Our first stop in Pisa (like most other visitors) was the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Now it’s leaning, now it’s not.
And of course there was the obligatory “I’m a cheesy tourist” photo to be taken.
While the Leaning Tower of Pisa is so famous, there is a lot more to Pisa than just this tower made by engineers that didn’t take its own weight into account. First of all there is the Church beside the tower, that is so rarely seen in Pisa photos.
Not to mention the Università di Pisa and the fact that this is a bicycle friendly city (some of the first words I learnt in Italian were swearwords, I wonder why?).
There’s the old town which is beautiful as well as fun to wander around and get lost in.
And of course there is the river to stroll along or hang out beside.
