A Day on the Square of Miracles

A final look at the Piazza del Duomo, sans what Frommer’s term the “perpendicularly challenged” campanile.

Nevertheless, nowhere in Pisa will you find so many miracles, where hundreds of ordinary citizens somehow manage to prop up the tower in miraculous feats of strength. Heh.
