    October 6, 2020 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Nächster Stop auf der Tour ist Pisa.
    Nach einem kleinen Frühstück in Bologna ging es auf direkten Weg hierher.
    Nachdem ich meine Unterkunft bezogen habe ging es auf direkten Weg zum Turm, was sonst. 😁😅
    Natürlich habe auch probiert ihn wieder gerade zu rücken, hat bei mir aber auch nicht geklappt. 😉 Danach habe ich noch eine kleine Runde durch die Stadt gedreht, wobei ich sagen muss, sie hat ihren Charme aber erinnert auch irgendwie teilweise an ein Kriegsgebiet da die Häuser echt fertig aussehen. Bzw teilweise habe ich mich zurück nach Hanoi versetzt gefühlt, was ich wiederum sehr gut fande. Allem in allem eine Reise wert. Bin dann wieder Richtung Unterkunft da es doch sehr windig wurde und es nach Regen aus sah. Was sich auch bewahrheitet hat. 🙈🌧 Daher verbringen ich den Abend heute auf dem Zimmer, mit ein paar Köstlichkeiten aus dem Supermarkt und ruhe mich für meine Weiterreise morgen ein bisschen aus. 😎

    Ein schiefer Turm und das Meer

    August 17, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Ein weiteres Must See auf unserer Toskana Tour ist Pisa.
    Hier steht der berühmte schiefe Glockenturm.
    Wir haben Glück und sind vor den Menschenmassen auf dem Piazza dei Miracoli.

    Nach einem kleinen Mittagessen setzten wir unsere Reise fort. Die letzten 150km!

    Endlich auf unserem Stellplatz angekommen heißt es, Badehose an und ab ins Meer!

    Torre Pendente di Pisa, Pisa

    September 22, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    We woke up early today as we had a big day ahead of us. After losing our planned time in Pisa yesterday due to forgetting what day it was, instead of today being an easy travel day to Florence we had to retrace our steps back to a Riomaggiore (two trains there and two trains back) to collect our belongings, still find time for Brad to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa and for us to check out the other amazing buildings in the square. And then we had to make our way to Florence.

    Somehow we managed to fit it all in. After waking very early we made the quick walk back to the Leaning Tower of Pisa to photograph it in the early morning light. Once again there were very few people around, so we were able to take some great photos without the crowds. And then we made it back to Pisa in time for Brad to do his scheduled climb of the Tower. I sent Brad up to the top with the camera while I relaxed with a coffee and just admired the view from the ground. I have found some of the climbs a bit claustrophobic and didn’t want to face the climb today.

    Brad loved the climb but did say it was a bit disconcerting at times as the steps sloped one way and the building another. And he mentioned the wear on the stone steps after years and years of people climbing the steps. He did take some great photos for me to admire.

    The Torre pendente di Pisa, Leaning Tower of Pisa, is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of Pisa, known worldwide for its unintended tilt. The tower is situated behind the Pisa Cathedral and is the third oldest structure in the city's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo), after the cathedral and the Pisa Baptistry.

    The tower's tilt began during construction in the 12th century, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft on one side to properly support the structure's weight. The tilt increased in the decades before the structure was completed in the 14th century. It gradually increased until the structure was stabilized (and the tilt partially corrected) by efforts in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

    The height of the tower is 55.86 metres from the ground on the low side and 56.67 metres on the high side. The tower has 296 or 294 steps; the seventh floor has two fewer steps on the north-facing staircase. Prior to restoration work performed between 1990 and 2001, the tower leaned at an angle of 5.5 degrees, but the tower now leans at about 3.99 degrees.

    This is one monument that Brad just absolutely loves and it makes him smile every time we’ve seen it. I’m just glad we managed to get back in time for Brad to do the climb.

    PISA.. schiefe Turm & Metzgerviertel

    September 16, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Bis in die Altstadt von Pisa schaffen es nur die wenigsten Touris - zum Glück! Wir rein geradelt und haben das Metzgerviertel (beliebt bei Studenten) mit den urigen Lebensmittelläden angefahren und gut Mittagsvesper gemacht (Wurst- Käseplatte).
    Am schiefen Turm, Dom und die größte Taufkapelle der christlichen Welt haben wir uns nicht lang aufgehalten - unzählige vor allem asiatische Touristen belagern die Wiese. Paar witzige Fotos und wieder weg!

    Road Trip Day 4 – Pisa

    May 23, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Back into the car for a short drive to Pisa. We have been following Stefano in the car for the last four days. Didn’t lose him once. He had to follow us for 600 metres – didn’t follow us when we turned off. Graham won’t let him live that one down!

    I don’t know what people go to Pisa for more – to see the Leaning Tower or the people all pretending to hold it up. How that thing hasn’t fallen down I don’t know! I refused to pretend to hold the tower up for a photo, but peer pressure and all. Picture is attached. You can see how thrilled I was. Ernie had a crack but I don’t think he’s got the hang of it yet.

    Went to a restaurant for the last supper (well lunch anyway). I couldn’t quite finish my meal and had left 1 ½ tortellini and Stefano was aghast that I was going to send it back to the kitchen. Apparently it would make Jesus cry. Stefano helped me out by finishing it and said “Ok, Jesus is happy now”. We have laughed every day at the funny comments Stefano comes out with. I love the relationship the Italians have with their food – no wonder they are such fabulous cooks.

    Said a sad and tearful goodbye to Deb, Stefano and Ernie. It has been so special spending the last week with them. Stefano put together a fabulous itinerary and we feel we have seen the real Italy, but then who better to show it than an Italian. We have had many laughs and have made many special memories with them. I hope one day we can repay them. Every gelato from now on will be in their honour. Then we said a not so sad goodbye to our hire car, but not before we got lost in La Spezzia and drive through a market, oops.
