Tilt

I’m in Pisa! A dream to see the tilting tower. I wanted to call this post ‘to the left’ in reference to Beyonce’s Irreplaceable song. I realized the tower tilts to the right in my pictures so I kept it simple and went with ‘Tilt’. Seems like I still confuse right from left!dscf4817dscf4819dscf4820dscf4824dscf4825dscf4826dscf4827dscf4829dscf4831dscf4832dscf4834dscf4835PHOTOBOMB!!!

Hi!

Pisa is a city in the region of Tuscany, Italy. I didn’t get a chance to climb the bell tower but I did have fun taking silly pictures with the iconic leaning tower. Although Pisa was once in maritime control against Genoa and Venice, the leaning tower is what made Pisa famous. This white marble cylinder tower has been titling ever since completion in 1372. Talk about an architectural project gone wrong! Caused by weak soil, the tilt keeps getting worse.

The Torre Pendente, leaning tower in Italian, is only one of the many interesting sites in Piazza dei Miracoli or Square of Miracles. The Baptistery and the Cathedral are also lovely. The detailed architecture of these sights is incredible. Intricate white and elegant architecture seems to always amaze. Maybe its because of the work, patience and time it takes to accomplish. The final result is always impressively exquisite.

The columned arches in the architecture of both the tower and the baptistery is what I like most.

Until next time,

Evelina

    1. I didn’t think it was weird. I loved the architecture and how it still stood tall even with its unique tilt. I agree, it is beautiful, I didn’t stand too close but close enough to take silly pictures. You’re welcome, glad you enjoyed the post & photos even if you wouldn’t get so close!

    1. Yeah, thanks, I totally planned those silly photos. I can now scratch it off my bucket list. Really? I’ve always known about it, but then again I’m Italian so maybe that’s why. It’s okay now you do. Glad you learned something on my blog!

  3. These scenes are amazing. I am originally from Europe, so, this brings back some memories. Please stop by at the secondary blog for a new article https://inesepogalifeschool.com/ Unfortunately, I have to practically invite everybody since secondary blogs do not have the same visibility as the primary blog. Thanks!

  4. Je suis aussi allee a Pise. D’ailleurs j’en parle dans mon dernier “post”. We did not climb either. It was surprised how very busy it was ( beginning of October) . I find it is a bit expensive for such little time allowed going up and down… We walked in the city that was nice to explore. Bonne semaine Evelina. ( je pense que tu peux lire/parler francais)

    1. Salut, oui il n’y a pas de probleme, je peux ecrire et parler en Francais. Interessant, je vais aller voir le post tout de suite. I didn’t even check the cost to go up, I also just walked around, visited the town and had fun taking pictures. Merci, bonne semaine a toi aussi.
