Europe 2014: Shops and Restaurants around Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is not the only one popular in this square. Wherever you look here, you will be amazed. Just like this one...


How are they doing it? (*grin*)



And the moment you entered the compound, you will have a peek of the tower.


Love it!

But not only that, restaurants, shops are everywhere too. Too bad we didn't have enough time to sit down and have a decent meal.


And now, it's time to shop for real leather, souvenirs, purses and more.


And more shops from the outside...


It was indeed a lively and beautiful place. Hope we could be back again one of these days.

Europe 2014: The Leaning Tower of Pisa

While we were roaming around the square of Pisa, we finally saw the famous "Leaning Tower of Pisa". It was amazing!



The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most remarkable architectural structures from medieval Europe. It is located in the Italian town of Pisa, one of the most visited European cities. SOURCE.


The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the piazza's crowning glory.

Although only a third as high as the Washington Monument, it was a miracle of medieval engineering, probably the tallest bell towers in Europe.

With 207 columns ranged around eight stories, Tower of Pisa looks like a massive wedding cake knocked precariously askew by a clumsy giant guest.

The construction of Tower of Pisa began in August 1173 and continued for about 200 years due to the onset of a series of wars. Till today, the name of the architect is a mystery. SOURCE.



ove that there were shops everywhere in this square too. Will post more about it soon. (*wink*)

Europe 2014: Arriving Pisa, Italy

We had another couple of hours on the road but it was ok because the view was fanstastic...

Who wouldn't love this view?

After 2 to 3 hours, we finally arrived Pisa. And we were all too excited!


We can't wait to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa. But first, take a look at these shops before entering the compound. Souvenirs, leather bags, shirts, aaah, everything was there. I wanted to buy these all.


But I had to control myself, we were not here to shop, we were here to look around. (*wink*)



And look, upon entering the compound, we were greeted by another wonderful Duomo/Cathedral of Pisa.


It was definitely beautiful!


Will post more about the compound soon.

A Good Laugh and a Long Sleep goes a Long Way...

Uhuh!

"A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything."

This I can totally relate. No matter what you're going through, a good laugh and a long sleep go a long way. I would say I love to sleep and it makes me feel so much better if I'm able to sleep long. A laugh makes my day too.
