Pisa's Tower

This picture is of the often-photographed Leaning Tower of Pisa, minus the person pretending to be pushing it over.  I had just enough time between trains in Pisa to make a stop at the tower, and frankly I found it to be pretty disappointing.  As I stood before it I thought:
Yeah, it's leaning. Alright I can go back to the train station now... 
The central Italian cities all have nearby enemy cities (they've been fighting against each other for ever), but the one thing they can agree upon is that they all hate Pisa!  I wouldn't disagree.
Tip to backpackers in Europe: Skip the tower!
