Myscha’s Mom and Dad took a trip with us to Pisa while they were visiting us in Desanzano, Italy. Here are some highlights from the day.

A shot of the plaza from just before the baptistry. I think this is one of the most beautiful plazas in the world. How about you?

This picture focuses on the baptistry from a different angle. As you can see, this is a popular plaza to just come and hang out in.

Another baptistry picture . . . when you get a day with the sky as clear blue as it was this day, you just want to keep snapping and snapping . . .

A pic of the tower with another straight building for perspective. It’s easier to see the lean angle this way.

Another leaning shot of the tower. You can see the cables holding it up here, while they are working on stabilizing it. Since this particular trip, I believe they’ve finished that project and the cables have since been removed.

The leaning tower with the statue in front. David really wanted to recreate the cover shot from our Lonely Planet guide book to Italy.
