Pisa – You Only Need A Piece Of It

We are in love with the rail system in Italy.

Traveling like this allows you to roll into a place like Pisa, take the requisite photo of you and your mates propping up the tower, and roll out in around an hour. Like Venice, Pisa is a place that you want to “check off” and move on. 

We did just that, and here are the pictures:

So original!

  1. OK Great! Did You By Chance Go Sing In The Round Building? Very Acousticallly Built.

    1. Yes I did. I heard it was caused by wells built around the lagoon that drained the hard clay bed of water, causing the city to start sinking. Once the link was discovered, they closed a lot of wells and quit building new ones.
