A falling tower

Despite the heavy rain forecast throughout the north of Italy for the next week, we decided to head to Rome and play tourist for a few days, while waiting for our boat to arrive. The train from La Spezia to Rome goes through Pisa, so we had to get off the train and see the most famous tower in the world. Here are a couple of the requisite pictures.

We didn’t see much else in Pisa, since the weather was quite miserable. (We did buy two cheap umbrellas though – not much use on a bike, but great while we’re touristing!)
