Tower of pisa

There are two forms of tourism. One where you go and stay in the place for a while. In the second case, where the Erasmus students go and maybe aren´t rushed to visit everything and forget to see some things. There are places I visited, but lived experiences and places that were part of the environment, like sitting on the lawn of Pisa and improvising a meal from the supermarket. When you find a ball and play a game with the shadow of the Leaning Tower as arbitrator it is normal and when you go back home and see the photos you feel like you can lose yourself but you discovered all that isn´t shown in the tourist guides.

The tower of pisa leans a little ...

In Tuscany, Pisa is famous for its leaning tower, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy. This is actually the bell tower of the cathedral adjacent to the "Square of Miracles". Construction of the Tower of Pisa, called "La Torre di Pisa" in Italian, began in 1173. It was erected to show the world that Pisa became a rich and powerful trading empire. Before the end of its construction and because of the ground on which it rests, the tower had already begun to shift. The Tower of Pisa is still occasionally closed to visitors in order to consolidate its base. To climb up the tower it will cost you € 15. It's pretty weird to climb its steps, you really feel this "leaning" effect. At the top, you have a beautiful view of the city of Pisa and especially its beautiful cathedral, I also suggest you visit. Before leaving, you obviously take the picture "that-all-the-world-a" taking the tour with your finger for example.

La tour de pise, un peu penchée...

En Toscane, Pise est célèbre pour sa tour penchée, qui est l'une des attractions touristiques les plus prisées d'Italie.
C'est en fait le clocher de la cathédrale adjacente sur la "Place des Miracles".
La construction de la Tour de Pise, appelée "La Torre di Pisa" en italien, a débuté en 1173. Elle fut érigé afin de montrer au monde que Pise était devenu un empire marchand riche et puissant.

Avant même la fin de sa construction et à cause du sol sur lequel elle repose, la tour avait déjà commencé à basculer. La Tour de Pise est, aujourd'hui encore, occasionnellement fermé aux visiteurs afin de consolider sa base.

Pour monter en haut de la tour il vous faudra débourser 15€. C'est assez bizarre de monter ses marches, on ressent vraiment cet effet "penché". Arrivé au sommet, vous aurez une très belle vue sur la ville de Pise et notamment sa belle cathédrale, que je vous conseille également de visiter.
Avant de partir, vous prendrez bien évidemment la photo "que-tout-le-monde-a" en tenant la Tour avec votre petit doigt par exemple.

The most famous leaning tower !!

It seems incredible but when you get closer to the "Piazza dei Miracoli", and you see that tower so famous, so often parodied in photos, drawings, souvenirs ... Is steeper than it looks! The truth is that it is a work of art, so the tower (the Campanile), the Baptistry and the Cathedral itself. To be XII-XIII century were super advanced at the time. Yes that surprises the tower, so that is inclined (in the photos does not look like much, but I recommend going to see it live, to walk through part of the area which is very nice), but also the quality with which they are made the other buildings (there are more, people believe that is only the tower!) A quiet corner that you can visit in one morning (in Pisa not much else), but it is essential to visit though. Not worth paying to enter the monuments, the Cathedral is free entry and is spectacular inside. Climb the tower was worth about € 15 per head ... I found it a bit excessive and over to wait because you can only go in groups of 30 (if I remember correctly).

La torre inclinada más famosa!!

Parece mentira pero cuando te vas acercando a la "Piazza dei Miracoli", y ves esa torre tan famosa, tantas veces parodiada en fotos, dibujos, souvenirs... ¡ESTÁ MÁS INCLINADA DE LO QUE PARECE!

La verdad es que es una obra de arte, tanto la torre (que es el Campanile), el Baptisterio y la Catedral en sí. Para ser del siglo XII-XIII estaban super avanzados a la época.
Sí que sorprende la torre, por lo inclinada que está (en las fotos no lo parece tanto, pero recomiendo ir a verlo en directo, a parte de pasearse por la zona que es muy bonito), pero también la calidad con la que están hechos los otros edificios (que hay más, la gente cree que solo está la torre!!)

Un rincón que puedes visitar tranquilamente en una mañana (en Pisa no hay mucho más), pero es indispensable visitarlo eso sí. No vale la pena pagar por entrar a los monumentos, la Catedral es gratuita la entrada y es espectacular por dentro. Subir a la torre valía unos 15€ por cabeza... lo encontré un poco excesivo y encima hay que esperar porqué solo puede irse en grupos de 30 (si no recuerdo mal).

Climbing dangerous

Who does not know the Tower of Pisa? And who, visiting Pisa, does not try to climb to the top? You can not go home telling you for visiting the city, but not the tower. And then, let's face it, there is a curiosity about the slope: you will hear, you will not hear ...? Well, it would not be such a bad idea if the two climbers were not suffering from vertigo one and the other (the other in this case) of claustrophobia. You can imagine. I'm just saying that getting to the top was a challenge, stopping at each window and along the stairs worn and incredibly inclined! Too bad that once completed the mission, the parties are reversed, and at that point I was to proceed slowly, clinging to the railing, almost crawling. Of this experience I will always remember the old Japanese coming up with proverbial slowness (but with equal resistance, given the age!) And encouraged my traveling companion, parked up for air! Adventure. To do at least once. One, maybe.

Scalate pericolose

Chi non conosce la Torre di Pisa? E chi, visitando Pisa, non prova a salirci in cima? Non si può tornare a casa raccontando di aver visitato la città ma non la Torre. E poi, diciamoci la verità, c'è la curiosità riguardo la pendenza: si sentirà, non si sentirà...? Beh, non sarebbe stata un'idea così malvagia se i due scalatori non soffrissero l'uno di vertigini e l'altro (altra in questo caso) di claustrofobia. Vi lascio immaginare. Dico solo che arrivare in cima è stata un'impresa, fermandosi ad ogni finestra e percorrendo di corsa le scale consumate e incredibilmente inclinate! Peccato che una volta portata a termine la missione le parti si siano invertite, e a quel punto sia stato io a procedere lentamente, avvinghiato alla ringhiera, quasi strisciando. Di quest'esperienza ricorderò per sempre il vecchietto giapponese che saliva con proverbiale lentezza (ma con altrettanta resistenza, considerata l'età!) e incoraggiava la mia compagna di viaggio, in sosta a prendere aria! Un'avventura. Da fare almeno una volta. Una sola, magari.

Defying gravity

As soon as you approach the site and start to see the top of the tower, you can not help but feel the excitement of knowing who is going to one of those places that are part of all of us forever, even though we have not been there before. The entire area is amazing. The large lawn and plaza space enhances the majesty of the work. The tower is of great beauty and apparent fragility, making it even more striking inclination. Even if you go with the idea of ​​not make the photo, succumb and end up joining the dozens of people who at that time made the most picturesque positions to get photographed next to the tower.

Desafiando a la gravedad

En cuanto te vas acercando al recinto y se empieza a ver la parte superior de la torre, no puedes evitar sentir esa emoción de quien va a conocer uno de esos lugares que forman parte de todos nosotros desde siempre, pese a que no hayamos estado ahí antes.

Todo el recinto es increíble. El césped y el gran espacio de la plaza realza la majestuosidad de la obra. La torre es de gran belleza y de aparente fragilidad, lo que hace aún más llamativa su inclinación.

Aunque vayas con la idea de no hacerte la foto, sucumbirás y acabarás uniéndote a las decenas de personas que en ese momento realizan las más pintorescas posturas para salir fotografiados junto a la torre.

She tilts but does choit item!

As it is hollow, the tower has its center of gravity in a good position to avoid falling. And then, with 15 euros per person to climb inside, it is a lucrative business that can afford to keep in shape. It was so view photo of the favorite face to face is blunt. For cons, I discovered with pleasure some carved stones at the gateway: both naive and other ships from a medieval lighthouse interested me as well as an animal demon.

Elle penche mais ne choit point !

Comme elle est creuse, la tour a son centre de gravité en bonne place pour ne point tomber. Et puis, avec 15 euros par personne pour grimper à l'intérieur, c'est une affaire juteuse qu'on a les moyens de maintenir en forme. On l'a tellement vue en photo que le coup de coeur du face à face est bien émoussé.
Par contre, j'ai découvert avec plaisir quelques pierres sculptées au niveau de la porte d'accès : deux navires naïfs de part et d'autre d'un phare médiéval m'ont intéressé de même qu'un animal démon.

World heritage site by unesco

Declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. It was built to stand vertically but began leaning as soon as construction began. The cause of the bending of the work was the unstable ground on which the tower was rising. He was about to be destroyed during the Second World Gerra after being destroyed every tower of Pisa by the U.S. Army because they assumed that they were a threat to the positions that could be snipers from these towers. If anyone thought the Pisa Tower remained the more inclined tower in the world, is wrong, now more inclined tower in the world are in Germany, in a small town called Suurhusen, located in Lower Saxony

Patrimonio de la humanidad por la unesco

Declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad por Unesco. Fue construida para que permaneciera en posición vertical pero comenzó a inclinarse tan pronto como se inició su construcción. La causa del torcimiento de la obra era el inestable subsuelo sobre el que se estaba levantando la torre.

Estuvo a punto de ser destruida durante la Segunda Gerra Mundial después de ser destruidas todas las torres de Pisa por el ejército de los Estados Unidos ya que suponían que éstas eran una amenaza por las posiciones que podían tener los francotiradores desde dichas torres.

Si alguien creía que la Torre Pisa seguía siendo la la torre más inclinada del mundo, pues está equivocado, ahora la torre más inclinada del mundo se encuentra en Alemania, en un pequeño pueblo llamado Suurhusen, ubicado en la Baja Sajonia

The leaning tower

What about this place already very experienced in the world ..? Well, after checking, it looks so good! Otherwise practical matter, you can park near the tower in many pay parking or free if you're lucky places ... What is nice, apart from the characteristic of this round is to see the break to take all the tourists to pretend to push or hold the tower! And even if you've seen 100 times this tower photo, I think it is a place to see true anyway because it is still quite surprising!

La tour de pise

Que dire de ce lieu déjà extrêmement connu dans le monde entier..? Et bien, après vérification, elle penche bien oui!

Sinon, question pratique, vous pourrez vous garer non loin de la tour dans de nombreux parking payant ou des places gratuites si vous avez de la chance...

Ce qui est sympa, en dehors de la particularité de cette tour, c'est de voir la pause que prenne tous les touristes pour faire semblant de pousser ou retenir la tour! Et même si vous avez vu 100 fois cette tour en photo, je trouve que ça reste un lieu à voir en vrai quand même parce que ça reste malgré tout assez surprenant!

The tower leans

Known around the world and real emblem of the city, the tower of Pisa amaze visitors at each visit. Indeed difficult to imagine how this building still standing, especially now that the foothills and other reinforced cables have been removed, and that visits are again permitted. Also difficult not to be amazed by this architectural feature! Of course, the place is mobbed with tourists, all eager to be the most original picture. But the place remains absolutely breathtaking, especially at sunset when the building is adorned with gorgeous pink color.

La tour penchée

Connue dans le monde entier et véritable emblème de la ville, la tour de Pise étonne le visiteur à chaque visite. Difficile en effet d’imaginer comme cet édifice tient toujours debout, en particulier maintenant que les contreforts et autres câbles renforcés ont été enlevés, et que les visites sont de nouveau permises. Difficile également de ne pas être ébahi par cette particularité architecturale !
Bien entendu, l’endroit est pris d’assaut par les touristes, tous désireux de faire la photo la plus originale possible. Mais le lieu reste absolument époustouflant, particulièrement au coucher du soleil alors que l’édifice se pare de sublimes couleurs roses.

Leaning tower

Certainly, it is a bit expensive and complicated to climb up the tower of Pisa ... There is always a crowd of tourists on this historic site dating from 1173. This is one of the most famous monuments in the world, because the tower is tilted. Between 1350 and 2008, for example the tower continued to increase its angle of about 2.5 meters (about 3 more). It should be observed from the field of miracles, then the bottom, on the side, you can watch the tower for hours.

Entre 1350 et 2008 par exemple la tour a continué d’accroitre son inclinaison d'environ 2,5 mètres (environ 3° de plus). Il faut l'observer depuis le champs des miracles, puis du dessous, sur le côté, on peut regarder la tour pendant des heures.

Small penchant for italy

Central attraction of this small town in Italy that is Pisa, the Leaning Tower of Pisa stands in the middle of the main square (Piazza del Duomo). Built in Roman style and a height of 55.86 meters, this stone tower still bears the colors of the famous legend of Galilee (from the top of the tower would Galileo determined the fall velocity for all objects). A true moment of discovery and a relaxing afternoon spent around the Italian building (many cafes and Duomo Square to discover)
