Duomo, Pisa

Duomo, Pisa

This is a twofer. Not only does a visit here let you see the enormous cathedral, made from slabs of sensuously pale marble set in an open green field—but right next to it is the world’s favorite provocatively askew bell tower. Where would we all be if Galileo hadn’t had it to perform his study of falling bodies?
