It is one of the four structures that make up the Cathedral Complex called Campo dei Miracoli or Piazza dei Miracoli which easily translates to “Field of Miracles”. What could be more surprising though is to find out that The Tower of Pisa isn’t really the only bell tower that leans in Pisa. Church of Nicola and Church of St. Michele dei Scalzi’s bell towers also lean. This all has something to do with Pisa being known for its “marshy” or soft-muddy lands.

Having a travel Insurance is very important!

Be on time as advised by the dedicated tour manager

Scan your passport/ identity card photos and save them in your mobile

Try learning a few words of the language of the country you are visiting

Always carry a photocopy of your itinerary with yourself

Be kind, polite & Smile often! Being part of a group tour will definitely make it easier for you to make your new travel buddies.

Carry an extra pair of clothes when you are catching a flight in your handbag in case of any unexpected delays

Charge all your gadgets whenever you get time. A great tip - you‘ll find a USB charging port at the back of your hotel TV!

Get earplugs and a sleep mask along with you! They can be very helpful when you are flying or especially during your inter-country commute via tour bus

Track your spending when you‘re on the trip! It can be tiresome but you‘ll always be well-informed about all your expenses and the remaining travel budget amount

Let your bank know that you‘ll be travelling so your card is not blocked for sudden international usage
