ITALY ~Pisa- Leaning Tower-UNESCO~

Received a wonderful aerial view from Italy with one of the most famous buildings in the world, "De Scheve toren" or "Leaning Tower" of Pisa... I think you can asked anyone to name a few things they know about Italy and "the Leaning Tower" of Pisa will be one of them... But I never knew that it was in such a beautiful setting... And now I have a card showing it!! GREAT!! Thanks a lot Riccardo!!
Mail related stamps are always so nice...

Pisa is located in the Tuscany region of the Italian coast.The site of Santa Chiara is located in the heart of Pisa’s old town and borders the Cathedral Square (Piazza dei Miracoli), which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The group of buildings, which dates back to 1257 and has been used since then as a hospital and university centre.The leaning Tower (La Torre di Pisa) is the bell tower for the adjacent cathedral.
