Pisa, Italy

Just got back from 5 days exploring some of central Italy, mostly Florence. I knew when we traveled to Florence that I wanted to make the short trip (about 1 hour on the train) to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most iconic land marks of Italy (maybe even the world) and almost everyone knows what it looks like. Anyways so we took a regional train from Firenze S.M.N (the central train station in Florence) to Pisa central station in took about an hour. From Pisa central station we walked about 1.8 kilometers to the tower. At first we were going to take a cab but it wasn’t raining so we decided to walk.

It was also nice because we had about 3 hours in Pisa and there isn’t that much to do so walking was definitely the better choice. We ended up walking down the main pedestrian only area with lots of shops. We stopped in a few and just meandered in the direction of the tower. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how not crowded it was. Compared to Florence it was very quiet. But that all changed when we got to the leaning tower. There was so many people.

I am pretty sure most people like us, only came for the Leaning Tower so it makes sense that it was so crowded in that area. We did the obligatory Pisa photo ops and then we left the area. The tower is cool and a must see if your in the area but really there isn’t much else to do. We ended up finding a great little restaurant called Osteria all Goccia near the Piazza dei Cavalieri. I had the 4 cheese pizza and Clark had the 4 cheese gnocchi. It was really good and for a good price too. After we ate we made our way back to the train station to head to our next destination.
