Leaning Tower of Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is arguably the most iconic site in Pisa, and one of the most famous in Italy. The world-famous tower is a popular attraction among tourists who take photographs of themselves pretending to push the tower straight. You can see in the photo an idea of what tourists do, and I was no exception. It is possible to visit the inside of the tower and go to the top to enjoy the incredible view over the city of Pisa.

Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta

Also known as the Duomo of Santa Maria Assunta, the Cathedral was designed with strong Byzantine influences and boasts fascinating Romanesque Pisana architecture.

It is one of the favorite attractions for tourists and for me one of the most beautiful. You can sit on the grass, relax and simply and enjoy these wonderful monuments.
