TripThe Leaning Tower of Pisa is not only a landmark building in Italy, but also one of the wonders in the history of world architecture. The tower is actually a free-standing bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa, located in the central square of Pisa: the Miracle Square. The building has a cylindrical shape and is made of white marble. The bottom of the tower is engraved with reliefs and on the top there is a bell pavilion. It is said that the Leaning Tower of Pisa is built with spoils transported by six ships by the Pisa fleet. The tower is tilted to the southeast, and many people believe this is due to an uneven foundation and soft soils.
cparisshThe scenery here is very good, not very far from downtown Florence, a small town with mountains and rivers, it feels like a place for retirement. There are a lot of vines, and it looks like a lot of wineries.
Marie MonnierOne of the most amazing Cathedral I had the chance to visit. There is so much details and attention put in the place you'll never be disappointed. The ceiling is breathtaking and the size of the monument is huge. If you are in Florence you HAVE to walk inside and enjoy this historical place.
ChinaMexGirlBuy your tickets in advance! I heard someone saying they had waited 2 hours before going in! Go early to enjoy viewing everything you can. Definietly worth visiting, and don't forget to take picures of the river while your upstairs, and the dome.
qf3456792There is a tree-lined road on the wall of the town of Lucca, and it is a good choice to ride Lucca! The sunset time is accompanied by golden leaves, and this moment is very beautiful. The small town of Lucca is also a gathering place for opera art, which is staged every week. why? Because this is the hometown of Puccini!
[Scenery] too beautiful

sculptorSan Michele in Foro is a Roman Catholic church located in Lucca, Tuscany in central Italy, built on the ancient Roman Forum (Foro). It was the seat of Consiglio Maggiore, the most important council of the commune until 1370. It is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. The church was first mentioned in 795. It was rebuilt by Pope Alexander II after 1070. It is worth noting that the facade was built in the 13th century and contains a large number of sculptures and inlays, many of which were rebuilt in the 19th century. There are a series of blind areas in the lower part, the center of which contains the main entrance. The upper part is made of a large amount of iron material to resist wind, and has a small loggia with four steps. On the top of the mountain, there are two other angels, beside it is the 4-meter-long statue of St. Michael the Archangel.
