    Pisa with bad pizza

    July 31, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We arrived at a quite expensive campsite just outside Pisa, to be exact, just a click from Piazza dei Miracoli.
    The place were all the tourist go.
    So we go too.
    Had time enough to go and see for a first visit.
    Decided to have a pizza in one of the side streets, but that was not the real deal.t
    Bought tickets for the first admittance at 09.00.
    Did some needed homework, and..
    Up to bed!
    But this was easier said than done.
    Mosquitos, heat and mosquitos again...
    So it was a rough night.
    ..
    We survived! With some less blood and extra itch.

    Pisa

    August 31, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Lino aus der Schweiz und ich haben uns auf der Anfahrt zum schiefen Turm getroffen. Nach ein paar Kaffee haben wir dann die Regenpause für ein Foto genutzt :) . Pisa an sich ist bekannt für den schiefen Turm. die fest verbauten Souvenierläden nerven mittlerweile extrem weil wirklich überall dir irgendwer irgend einen Ramsch verkaufen will. Auch hier gibt es für mich sonst nicht wirklich viele interessante Sachen zu entdecken. Meine Gedanken schweifen öfter als mir lieb ist nach Hause. Aber ich will erstmal weiter.Read more

    Flórens-Pisa, með viðkomu í Primark

    September 15, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    Ég ók frá Flórens til Pisa í dag. Aksturinn tók ekki nema um 3 tíma, en ég var dugleg að stoppa til að viðra mig, og fór m.a. í Primark og fékk þar hlý náttföt til að nota í bílnum heima á fróni.

    Kom til Pisa um fjögurleitið og uppgötvaði að tjaldstæðið er ekki nema í um 800 metra fjarlægð frá aðalaðdráttaraflinu, svo ég brá mér í labbitúr og kíkti á þann skakka. Það var gaman að fylgjast með fólki að taka "rétta við turninn" og aðrar sjónarhornsmyndir.

    Ég labbaði svo í bæinn og mætti lúðrasveit á hestbaki. Í kjölfar hennar kom svo götusópari sem þreif jafnóðum upp skítinn eftir hrossin. Á leiðinni til baka rakst ég aftur á lúðrasveitina, sem virtist hafa stillt sér upp til myndatöku. Það væri gaman að vita hvort þetta er daglegur viðburður eða hvort þetta var af sérstöku tilefni.

    P.s. aftur er áhugavert að skoða .gpx-myndina, sérstaklega þegar ég nálgast Pisa. Slaufurnar voru svo svakalegar að ég veit ekki hvað ég fór í marga hringi - og þetta eru ekki villur, heldur leiðin á tjaldstæðið.

    Battistero di San Giovanni, Pisa

    September 22, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Next to the cathedral is the Battistero di San Giovanni, Baptistery of St. John, an amazingly detailed building. It became the second building, in chronological order, in the Piazza dei Miracoli, with construction starting in 1152, to replace an older baptistery, and completion in 1363. It is the largest baptistery in Italy at 54.86m high and a diameter of 34.13m. Built on the same unstable sand as the tower and the cathedral, the Baptistery leans 0.6 degrees towards the cathedral.

    Constructed of marble, the style of architecture transitions from the Romanesque style to the Gothic style with the bottom half being built in the Romanesque style and the upper section in the Gothic style with its pointed arches. The detail in the upper arches is so ornate and the comparison to the bottom simpler style is what makes this such a beautiful building to admire.

    The most unique thing about the exterior is the dome roof with one half clad with lead sheets on its east side and the west side clad with red tiles. It is the Baptistery’s exterior dome roof and interior pyramidal roof that has resulted in making the interior acoustically perfect, a resonating chamber.

    The interior is extremely surprising due to its lack of decoration. It contains an octagonal font at the centre that dates from 1246, and a bronze sculpture of St. John the Baptist at the centre of the font. The pulpit was sculpted between 1255 and 1260 by Nicola Pisano, father of Giovanni, the artist who produced the pulpit in the Duomo and is the most striking piece in the Baptistery.

    The contrast between the interior of the cathedral and that of the Baptistery could not be more black and white, with the simplicity of the Baptistery really causing one to pause, to just stop and breathe. The sense of history and beliefs is very strong in here and it was great to be able to experience it.
