When we were travelling by train from Florence to Cinque Terre, we stopped for a few hours in Pisa. Pisa is famous for a bell tower that leans because it was built on soft ground. People from around the world come to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, mostly because they want to get a picture of themselves trying to hold it up.
When we got off the train in Pisa, we had to check in our bags at the station. Then we walked to the bus stop and took the bus to the tower. It was a dark and gloomy day and it felt like it was going to rain.
There were lots of people there. The Leaning Tower of Pisa wasn’t the only building that was leaning. The church and the baptistery were leaning too, but not as much as the Leaning Tower.
When we got there, we took pictures of us trying to hold the Leaning Tower up (and some of us pushing it down). Then me, Edmund, Susan, and Lucy played a game on the grass. It was a game to see how far you could jump without landing on somebody.
Then after that, we went into the Baptistry of St. John. A baptistery is where people get baptized to become a Christian. It is the biggest baptistery in the world. We walked around inside and looked around.
Our 3 hours were finished, so we had to hurry back so we could catch our train to Cinque Terre. It was really cool to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
