Leaning Tower of Pisa

Before we headed to the airport to head back to Catania, we stopped at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The weather was absolute crap, but we made the most of it. The tower leans a LOT more than I thought it did. It was pretty cool!

I counted the steps to get up to the top. It was 218 and that didn't include the spiral at the very top. While you were walking up the steps, you could *definitely* tell you were leaning.

View from the top:

Token "leaning" - haha!!
My turn to lean:
Token lookin' all GQ like:
Mr. GQ is married to a girl who decided to "prop up" the Tower with her bum. Great match! :p
