In Pisa, Italy
Who hasn’t heard of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. From television documentaries, reference books and documentary stamps, the tower has become a symbol of architectural importance not only for Italy but also the entire world. The tower, which is only an eleven minute drive from the airport, via SS1, is the free-standing bell tower to the cathedral of the city of Pisa. The tower is known for its unintended 3.39° tilt due to inadequate foundation during construction. Since then, it has been subjected to various degrees of reconstruction and stabilisation efforts.
The tower, fortunately, is not all there is to see in Pisa. The city also contains historic and architecturally-inspired churches and palaces. Piazza Miracoli, now known as the Piazza del Duomo, also houses the Duomo (Cathedral) and the Baptistry. Some churches that could be found in Pisa are the churches of St. Sixtus, St. Francis, St. Frediano and San Nicola, respectively, among others. Places include the Medici Palace, Palazzo Reale, Palazzo Gambacorti and Palazzo Agostini. Meanwhile, there are also a number of historical museums of sculptures, paintings and traditional scientific museums such as Museo Nazionale degli Strumenti per il Calcolo, Museo Nazionale di Palazzo Reale and Museo delle Sinopie.
Food in Pisa is a variety of seafood, pasta and game dishes. Most restaurants near the vicinity of the leaning tower are very expensive but have low quality of food. To experience excellent food, you must walk to the central area where food has better quality. The top-rated restaurants in Pisa include L’Ostellino, Gusto Giusto and Gusto 129 Pizzeria. Then, with your campervan, you can visit so many other destinations in Italy like Pomezia, Pordenone, Porto Torres, and Forli among others.
