Remember ...

If not now, when?

Friday 27 September 2019


I loved this place.  It exceeded my expectations. .
And what sealed it for me?  
The toilets!  Fresh, modern ... Simple to gain entry.  You pay 80c, end of.
Which for Italy is certainly saying something!  The country's toilets seems to bogged down (see what I did there?!) in bureaurocratic red tape: a minimum of two “guards of the portal” and an extremely convoluted and sometimes v. imaginative riddle to crack to understand how each individual convenience operates - all this just to spend a penny! 
Unemployment? Sorted!

But of course Pisa is so much more than toilets.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the big attraction, not its toilets!
The leaning bell tower emits a feel good vibe.  It's pretty.  It's exactly what it says on the tin.  It's a pretty old tower, well maintained over the centuries, and it leans.  
It leans by 4 degrees in fact, and sits behind the city’s beautiful cathedral.

It's quite amazing that the tower is still standing.

Well, perhaps it's had a bit of support from The Photographer!

There was also a beautiful baptistry in the grounds.

So Pisa.

Well worth visiting.

So as you can see,  there's more to Pisa than just the leaning tower, as there are other beautiful and historical sights to discover in its grounds.
Like those now quite famous toilets!

A la perchoine,

  1. Such a beautiful place! The baptistry looks beautiful inside too. Now, why no photo of the infamous toilets? :o)

    1. Oh shucks, I SHOULD have photographed those amazing toilets, especially as they came to be so important when in Rome!
      Hugs, x.

  2. I've never been to Italy. Every photo I see is always beautiful. I hope you got a hand dryer for that money! xx

    1. You know Laurie, I was in such a dream-like state that I don't remember the hand drying arrangements!
      I hope you get to Italy sometime soon, it's amazing.
      Hugs, x.
