Torre Pendente di Pisa
Pisa, Toscana - The Leaning Tower- as we enter the old gate of the complex, there we saw the world's famous Leaning Tower the Pisa bell tower, it is beautiful made of white marble, it continues to lean by an average of 1 mm a year and the Italians don't want to do anything to make it straight for there will be a great mistake if they do. Unfortunately, the tower is closed since 1990 for the tourists so we are just content taking photos of it outside.
Baptesterium - a very unique round structure, made of white marble said to be built from 1153 and finally completed in the 14th century.
Duomo - or Pisa Cathedral built in 1064, it is made of black and white marble and some dark green and cream marble, facing the leaning tower, the door is made of bronze but originally it has wooden door but destroyed in fire in 1596.
