When I was little I remember joking around about the Leaning Tower of Pizza. I think I got that from the show Rugrats or something, however since then, I figured I couldn’t go to Italy and NOT see the Leaning tower of Pisa or just the Torre di Pisa as the locals call it. If you haven’t heard yet, I will tell you now…in my opinion (and the opinion of many others) Pisa is a city worth doing a day trip to (more like a couple hours to). Do not stay there over night or for more than a day if you value your precious time in Italy. When I visited, I took a train from Florence to Luca where I explored the city for 5 or 6 hours and then took another train to Pisa for an addition 2 hours. By nightfall we were back in Florence and relaxing with a bottle of wine. Granted I only had a couple days however, there wasn’t much else going on in Pisa that I was aware of (though if you have recommendations, please let me know). But do go and see the tower, at least for the epic picture.
