Santa Maria Assunta

Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, Pisa
There is much more to see in Pisa than just the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), but we will start from there. The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta (St. Mary of the Assumption) lies in the middle of the wonderful square, also known as Piazza del Duomo. “Duomo” is another term for “Cattedrale” (Cathedral).

This is a day I thought I would never see. PISA Daily Photo. From VP. I don't need to see anything else, ever again.

Oh no, you must REALLY be mad at Livorno to cross out her name and post the wonders of Pisa!

Can we your readers mount a write-in campaign to Livorno City Hall to protest the generator?

I think you need to start a FB protest page...

How am I going to survive without the sea? :-) Unless you show Marina di Pisa? :-)

VP said...
