My trip to Pisa wasn't bad. It only rained for an hour and half of my sightseeing which was when I toured inside the Cathedral, Catacombs, and Baptistery. Each were AMAZING!! (and dry.) My tours started when I decided I was going to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Yep, I did it. It's a bit pricey but it was worth the view at the top!

After climbing the tower, I checked out the Baptistery. It was really simple inside but had elegant carvings and stained glass windows. I also checked out the catacombs which were right next door. What surprised me the most was that it is still used. The most recent date of a tomb I found was 2009. I didn't realize it was still in use.

If you look in the bottom center you can spot St. Michael!

I have to say even though there wasn't a lot to do in Pisa I enjoyed my time. It was a nice break from running around Barcelona and before my Rome trip.
