Pisa, Its Leaning Tower, Baptistery, and Cathedral

Pisa, Its Leaning Tower, Baptistery, and Cathedral
Pisa, with its famous tipsy tower, makes a wonderful day trip. Pisa’s three must-see sights — the Cathedral, Baptistery, and leaning bell tower — are reminders of its long ago sea-trading wealth. The architectural style throughout is Pisa’s very own “Pisan Romanesque.”Where traditional Romanesque has a heavy fortress feel, Pisan Romanesque is light and elegant. The 200-foot-tall bell tower is famous because it leans about 15 feet. Pisa’s huge and richly decorated cathedral is artistically more important than its more famous bell tower.
