We planned to arrive early in Pisa, to beat the crowd and be the first ones to climb up the Leaning Tower. And our plan worked! We had plenty of time to enjoy the iconic structures of Pisa before the busloads of tourists came.
On our way up the tower – 296 steps to go…

We had a great time exploring the architectural complexes of Pisa. And as always, I took lots of photos!
