    Pisa & The Leaning Tower

     On Left - am leaning on the Pisa, Centre - great views over the Field of Miracles & Right, our tour guide, Stephano giving tips on photo taking....

     The Leaning Tower of Pisa is undoubtedly the most famous building in the city.  What makes it more unusual than its lean, is the fact that it has always tilted.  Building began in 1173 and even when just 3 of its 8 storeys were built, it was already sinking on one side.  Over the next 180 yrs, architect after architect attempted to straighten the bell tower or continue building the successive storeys at an angle to compensate the tilt.

    A popular tourist activity is to pose for photographs pretending to "hold up" the leaning tower and preventing it from falling.

     Dinner - we had Osso Bucco, potatoes, salad & herb infused pork chop 

    An inevitable photo memories of The Pisa!
