I was having such a wonderful time in Livorno, walking around the city having my own little routine when my friend said I have to take you to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa and we are going this afternoon!
There was a part of me that just wanted to stay in Livorno. I was quite comfortable and did not care to play tourist! What a mistake it would have been for me not to go to Pisa to see the Piazza dei Miracoli home of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Duomo and the Baptistry. It is truly the Square of Miracles.
Visiting Italy in November makes it easy to see things that would be quite crowded at other times of the year! Our drive to Pisa took less than 30 minutes, parking was not a problem and we were one block away from the Square of Miracles. It was a very inspiring experience to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person, the massive doors of the Duomo and watch everyone taking the typical pictures with their hands out holding the leaning tower up! Visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa was enough for me. I did not need to walk up the tower. Being on the Square and seeing the beauty was inspiring enough for me!
When in Italy do visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa and then enjoy an espresso at a nearby bar! Shopping for souvenirs is within the Square if you would like to bring some mementos home with you. For me my mementos are my photos and memories of a wonderful afternoon in Pisa!
