Travel Log: Pisa

IMG_5350logo

Jason and I visited Pisa byway of Lucca and on the way to Florence a few summers ago. We were in such close proximity to Pisa, that we had to make a quick stop to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Even Dublin had a good time in Pisa!

The Leaning Tower of Pisa was designed to be perfectly vertical, but it apparently began leaning during construction. The amount of water in this area prevented the foundation from being placed any more than 10 feet in the ground and before the second story was even built, the south side of the tower began to sink. Today the tower stands at about 60 meters and in 1990, was leaning at about a 10 degree angle.

After seeing the tower, we found ourselves at a little ristorante for some pizza. While the pizza was delicious, the treats we discovered at the pasticceria next door were even better. You know me, the sweets get me every time!
