The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Guess what day it is?!
Happy Wednesday everyone! I’m excited to bring you another wonderful post from my brother, Matthew. He was previously featured for his post on Machu Picchu. He will be covering the Leaning Tower of Pisa for today’s post.
Students visiting Italy would be remiss if they didn’t enjoy a stop at one of the country’s most illustrious, if not a tad infamous, landmarks: the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Educational tours to the site are incredibly safe, not to mention encouraged, as the tower has been shored up and the foundations strengthened several times over the past century. The tower brings visitors far and wide to see the oddity up close and personal. Perhaps more than a few visitors have even considered it to be a wonderful testament of humanity’s ability to make the best out of a bad situation.
Teachers should be sure to visit the nearby cathedral and basilica as well. Even though they might not be as iconically ill-designed, they still serve as a homage to some truly beautiful architecture and artwork.
