Leaning Tower of Pisa

pisa-leaning-tower-italy-64

EN: The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Italy. Each year up to a million tourists come from all over the world to take a look at this gem of engineering.
If you’ve been to other small Italian towns then Pisa most likely will leave you with mixed feelings. Crowded with tourist buses and street peddlers trying to sell cheap knockoffs, these things don’t really get you in the mood.
It may sound a bit ignorant, but there is not much to see in Pisa beside the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), the square in which the Tower and other 3 structures are located.
The rest of the town, which creates the impression of being quite dirty, didn’t make us feel very safe, especially when the lights were going down.
Probably one of the most amusing moments of the day were the tourists trying to take the famous photos with the tower: carrying it on their backs, holding it in their hand, thus creating an “original” optical illusion that no one thought of before.

RO: Printre cele mai solicitate destinaţii turistice în Italia se află şi oraşul Pisa. Sute de mii de turişti vin anual să facă poze la renumitul Turn din Pisa (Torre di Pisa).
După ce am vizitat o serie de oraşe medievale mici italieneşti, prima impresia a noastră despre acest oraş nu a fost chiar dintre cele mai frumoase. Oraş foarte aglomerat, plin de turişti şi comercianţi imigranţi care foarte insistent încercau să ne vândă ceva prostesc. După câteva ore de explorări a oraşului am realizat că tot farmecul Pisei este doar acea piaţă unde se află turnul şi catedralele, care dea drept sunt absolut impresionante. Restul oraşului mi s-a părut murdar şi chiar nesigur pentru plimbări serale.
Pentru noi, cele mai amuzante momente din acea zi, au fost să admirăm cum turiştii încercau să facă poze la turn, şi anume de gen că ţin turnul în mână sau pe spate, să creeze acea “iluzie originală” pe care nimeni nu a mai încercat-o.

EN: These are the only 2 photos that I took while exploring other parts of Pisa. How I have said before, nothing interesting to shoot and show you.
RO: Acestea sunt unicele 2 poze care din restul explorării Pisei mi-au trezit ceva interes.
