Cart and I were in Pisa during the weekend for mission day – an Ingress event where you explore a town, hack on specific portals to create missions for your profile, like this one :
And when you think of Pisa, what is the first thing that comes to mind? The leaning tower, of course. But like many others, before this trip, I thought that there wasn’t that much things to see apart from the tower.
But as we walked through the areas, as suggested from the missions, I saw that quite a number of things that I thought was interesting.
Like this small church which we saw right next to the river, with the white and grey stones and the statues on the top, which made it look unique – I don’t think that I’ve ever seen anything like that before.
I really find this door interesting, with the heads facing right towards you, which to me, is reminiscent of something from the Game of Thrones.
There is a river passing through Pisa, and sights like these is what makes me think that I’m definitely in Europe – the shape of the buildings as well as the mountain behind it.
It was such a lovely day, and coupled with the beautiful early autumn temperature, it made a very pleasant walk.
And at length, we reached the heart of Pisa, the Piazza del duomo and it’s such a magnificent sight.
The buildings look so pristine and majestic, and it’s easy to feel inspired here.
P.s. If you’re interested, I made a Pisa Instastory so you can watch little videos of my trip there 🙂
