Day 5—Pisa, Pierotucci Leather Factory and Padua
Souvenir stalls manned by foreigners lined the street leading to the Square of Miracles.
The iconic tower
The tilt of the tower was reduced from more than 5° to 3.5°. When we were there, only 45 visitors were allowed into the tower at a time.
Cathedrale di Pisa
No, we didn't do the cheesy forced perspective classic every tourist poses for, but we had a good laugh watching the others take photos of their buddies in weird positions—pushing, kicking, licking, or holding up the leaning tower! Everyone was jostling to try and get a shot lined up, only to have another tourist jump in and ruin the shot! 🤣
What a fascinating piece of art! One couldn't help but wonder about the cause of his fate.
