"Pisa" Italy Things to Do Tip by Kindra

Personally I thought a day trip was enough to see the sights. The leaning tower of course, but do go see the Duomo nearby. Not too long ago, a secret part of the dome was discovered. There is the main part of the dome and then an interior between the walls outside and the main dome with a very claustrophib medieval type stairway leading up to the hidden part. In the main part of the building there is a large floor and circular balcony above it- one of the guards echoed for us and it went on for 45 seconds! (the architecture allows for the sound to continuously bounce off the walls- you can make a choir out of one voice if you keep going!)

Address: On the drive to Florence...?

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
