Leaning tower in Pisa

Construction on the tower started in 1173 AD near the city’s cathedral on a piece of land known as Piazza dei Miracoli (“Square of Miracles”). The tower was round and 52 feet (16m) in diameter at the base with a projected height of 191 feet (58m). The first level was to be taller than the […]

I couldn’t be happier that I tacked this location on to my visit to the Czech Republic. On my second day in Cesky Krumlov I hired […]
