Our Honeymoon: Quick Stop in Pisa

After our first night in Florence, we took a quick day trip to Pisa. We arrived via train thinking that as soon as we came out of the station we'd see the Leaning Tower on the horizon.  We saw no such thing.  Instead, we hopped on a bus that dropped us off near the landmark. 

To be honest, we were a bit underwhelmed.  I mean, the whole leaning part was neat, but the tower itself isn't very tall at all.  Our apartment building in New York is much taller.  Regardless, we bought tickets to climb the 257 steps to the top.

Climbing up the tower was a tiring, but worthwhile experience.  The stairwells were extremely narrow, but the views at the top were lovely.  I had fun attempting creative photos for the brief time we spent at the tip top.

The cathedral just beside the tower proved much more impressive.  We quickly stopped inside, but didn't stay long since they were conducting a service at the time.  Both inside and out, it was beautiful.

And just like that we were back on the bus to the train to spend a second night in Florence.

Have you ever visited the Leaning Tower of Pisa?
What did you think?
