Pisa is a tiny town , which draws its fame from one of the world's most famous architectural cockups - the Leaning Tower. Part of a trio of Romanesque splendours on the green carpet of Piazza dei Miracoli, the tower first started to lean when only three of its tiers had been completed. Reason for its inclination? Shifting soil. However in 1998, the slippage that first caused the tower to lean has finally been arrested ... though it did cause the famous lean to lose 40cm.

Bro and I stayed at Hotel Francesco , a hotel situated just 2 minutes walk from the Piazza dei Miracoli. There really isnt much to see in Pisa, except for the leaning tower. We did however, manage to sample some original Italian pizza in one of the many restaurants near the Piazza, though there really wasnt much option on which topping we could have. We decided to share a vegetarian and a funghi ( mushrooms -lah !!!) pizza .. not like the pizza the Hut serves. The dough base was thin and i felt like i was having cheese on roti canai. Lots of cheese, though!
