  The leaning stairs
by filipdebont

During my 9 day trip I did climb several buildings (Dome of St peter in Vatican, Campanile in Siena, Dome in Firenze).

But climbing the Torre Pendente in Pisa was a very special experience.

Of course because of the special position of this Tower. As you are climbing the Tower, the one moment the steps of this Tower are leaning towards the inside and a half revolution further they are leaning towards the outside. So you need to adapt your search for the right balance every half revolution you make on the spiral stairs.
