We planned on following Rick Steves advice...driving to a parking lot, paying to park and walking to the tower. However driving in Pisa was a NIGHTMARE and we ended up following parking signs only to get "lost" near the field of Miracles. We parked on a side street where the curb wasn't painted. (typically white lines means free parking, blue means pay and yellow means 'dont even think about it'). So we chanced it and parked. We walked not even 500 feet and BAM!
We were there.

The boys kicking it down!
And while I didn't get the angle I wanted of me stepping on it, I did get a picture of me kicking it too:
After about 15 minutes of picture taking, there isn't a whole lot else in Pisa that one ''has to do''. We all went to a trattoria and grabbed lunch (nothing like 13 Americans to seat...that made our waiter quite noticeably annoyed). We grabbed gelato afterward then headed back to the Villa.
