Leaning Tower

Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Pisa, Tuscany, Italy
We woke up around 8:30 AM, then we had a breakfast downstairs. This breakfast was nice. It included scrambled eggs, meat, cheese, hot chocolate, hot tea, and a number of other yummy treats. All of this was amazing, since we have been mostly skipping breakfast. Since it was included, we ate as much as we could before we started this day.

Next, we took a quick power nap and left the hotel around 11AM . Leaving our bags at the hotel (since it was somewhat close to the train station), we set out to explore Pisa.

First, we walked through the downtown area and over the Ponte I Mezzo bridge. Nextwe walked through a long line of souvenir shops and a lot of restaurant areas. Finally, we found ourselves at the Piazza del Duomo. This is where the leaning tower is. We took our "tourist" leaning tower pictures and kept walking around. They had an option to climb the tower, but we decided not to since we would have had to pay 18e per person and the line was pretty long. Instead, we walked around the Plaza, seeing the other surrounding buildings. After we finished at the Plaza, we walked through some more tourist shops and made our way slowly back to the train station.

We grabbed our bags from the hotel and took a train around 2PM to Florence.
