On our way from Florence to Cinque Terre (our next home base) we spent an hour or so at Pisa. There is not much to this city so I was fine with taking pictures, picnicking, and quickly passing through.
What is the one thing you wonder about the leaning tower of Pisa?
WHY is it leaning?!
It is information that is missing from the construction history placard in front. I guess the world will never know...
Fred and I decided to walk back to the train station a little early as it took even less time than I imagined to see Pisa. We walked back to the same station we got off at (Pisa S. Rossore) and discovered that I could not buy our tickets to Cinque Terre there and so, with our bags, we ran 3 km to Pisa Centrale train station and bought tickets with 5 minutes to spare. The important thing...we made it!
