Everybody knows it, everybody talks about it – but is it really worth to travel to the small Italian town Pisa just to see this tower?
My last journey took me from Vienna to Pisa and then from Florence to my final destination Catania in Sicily. I had 4 hours between my two flights to drive from Pisa to Florence by train. Enough time to make a stop at the world famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. And with enough I mean that you really don’t need more time. It took me around ten minutes and 1,20€ to get from the airport of Pisa to the sight by bus. The tower is super nice and most of all: super small!! After reading about it in numerous books as a child, I naively expected a huge building but the Mona Lisa effect hit me.
It’s pretty small but lovely and I’m glad that I went there also because of that super cozy area around. People are chillin’ in the sun with Italian ice cream and with this great architecture in the background I felt like in a fairytale.
I didn’t have enough time to relax but obviously I had to take THE tourist pic. And yes it took time to catch the right position and yes I fell down. 😉
To sum up: Make a stopover in Pisa and enjoy this atmosphere for a few hours – and most importantly keep your fingers crossed it’s a sunny day.
