Travel Pisa

There's actually only one main reason people come to Pisa, and that's to see the renowned leaning tower. Luckily it's very close to the main train station, so you can drop your bags in a locker and hop on a bus for the short drive to the plain square about the Pisa's leaning tower and church. The Leaning Tower in Pisa is in truth just the bell tower for the close cathedral, which is rather impressive in its own right. Tours of the cathedral and the baptistery (behind the church) are recommended, and cheap in comparison to the tower itself. The tower is from time to time open for going up and sometimes not, counting on its stability, and it's a good idea to book tickets ahead if you're eager to climb it.
