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!PHOTOBOMB!!!

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 the cities of Genoa and Venice in Italy, 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! It is caused by weak soil and 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,
