Pisa Blanca

Just before arriving in Pisa,our guide told us ¨ You´ll be fascinated with Pisa and it´s buildings. Everything´s white over the green grass.¨ and boy, he was right! But first, a photo of me in the adjacent building which is an enclosed cemetery. ;)

P1170070

The gleaming white marble buildings of the Piazza del Duomo which by the way is a UNESCO World Heritage Site are the main attractions of this famous place. First the baptistery,

then the church

P1170042

and it´s intricate ceiling and graceful columns in black and white marble which reminded me of  the duomo of Siena.

P1170056

As for what I wore, it was something very casual as usual. We´re in the middle of the heat wave when we had the tour so just imagine how hot it was while walking under the sun. I wanted to wear something where my pores can breathe because I was sweating all over including my feet. Eeeeww!

top-H&M, shorts- Stradivarius, bag- Tous, sandals- Zara
What I like about Pisa is that the main attractions were built side by side and so you don´t have to walk that much to visit each and everyone of them. See?

P1170037

And yes, the main reason why we decided to come here: the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. After some work was done on the tower´s foundation, it´s said tha it could last up to 200 years more. That´s good news for the future generation! :)

P1170078

Of course, I had to have my photo taken beside the tower. I tried extending my hand when we shot the tower on the right side( like supporting the tower) but my photographer wasn´t that artistic enough. All the photos ended up weird and sorta trying too hard, hahaha! So this shot on the left side of the tower would do for now.

P1170080

I´m almost done with my Italian tour post. Next week would be Venice, watch out for that! ;)

Happy Monday, all!
