Pisa in Pictures: There's More to This Gorgeous City Than the Leaning Tower
When I was 19, my friends and I hopped off a train in Pisa, snapped a photo of the Leaning Tower, and then hopped back on another train out of there. What a wasted opportunity! Pisa has Bologna's activist energy (without all the graffiti and snobbery of the punkabestia and well-to-do); Florence’s beauty (without all the tourists); and Naple’s timeless wildness (but a little less wild and less petty crime).
This town has so much more to offer than just a photo of at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Spend at least a full day here, if not a few days.
Here are some photos of my favorite sites in Pisa. Hear move about Pisa on the Postcard Academy podcast episode: “Lucca, Pisa, and Other Towns in Tuscany You Must Visit” and subscribe for free.
