Pisa, Italy: The Leaning Tower

We finally have arrived to the main attraction in Pisa (to see the leaning tower and the duomo) which is the only reason why we come here. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the piazza's crowning glory. It was designed as a circular bell tower. It is constructed of white marble. The cathedral, or Duomo di Pisa is an impressive example of Romanesque architecture in Italy. Faced in gray-and-white striped marble and bristling with columns and arches. Truly amazing. So beautiful!
