Autumn in Rainy Pisa | Italy

I was wearing the classy blue coat walking on the rainy street in Pisa. Sometimes, an unexpected and changed plan can even cheer you up like a little surprise.

優雅的靛藍色大衣,漫步雨中的比薩。有時候,似乎不在原本計劃範圍內的計畫,好像也是個不錯的小驚喜。

 

 

 

Pisa is located in the middle Italy and owns the worldwide famous “The leaning Tower of Pisa”. It was used to be a prosperous country between 10th-13th centuries and stared to decline in the end of 13th century. Only the Duomo remains the glorious history to be remembered.

比薩這位在義大利中部的小城市以斜塔聞名世界,10世紀至13世紀末是個繁榮富裕的海洋國家,隨著勢力的衰微,同一時期的海洋也遭土沙填埋,僅剩大教堂的羅馬式建築可以重現當時的光景。

I’ve heard “The leaning Tower of Pisa” since my childhood and I would like to visit this place for a long long time. But there are too much beautiful places in Italy and I don’t have enough time to stay in Italy longer as long as I could. Sometimes, my Italian trips depend on the colleagues in the flight after arriving in Rome. This time, my colleagues were planning a mini short trip to Florence for only one day. And I decided to join them!

We started our mini journey at 6:00 am from Fiumicino Rome airport Fiumicino on the way to Florence. It took 2:30 hours by train but I didn’t sleep at all looking at the view through the window. One girl came up with an idea and would like to see the The Leaning Tower of Pisa maybe for 2 hours so that we spontaneously bought the tickets in the Florence main station and took another 1 hour train to Pisa.

一直想親自前來看比薩斜塔已經很久的一段時間,只是義大利的景點實在太多,停留的時間也不夠,很難有機會一次跑很多城市。這次同事們的計畫原本只有佛羅倫斯一日小旅行,卻多了一點小變化。

清晨6點左右從羅馬機場出發到佛羅倫斯的途中,大家想說比薩距離佛羅倫斯只有一小時的車程沒有很遠,應該可以拍個照就快點離開,於是臨時在佛羅倫斯火車站售票機購買了前往比薩的車票。

漫步街道 Walking on the streets

 

 

It is supposed to be a sunny day but it started to rain after we arrived at the Pisa train station. I’m wearing the classy blue coat walking on the rainy street in Pisa.

從比薩火車站走往比薩斜塔的方向,不料天空卻開始下起雨來,我穿著優雅的靛藍色大衣,漫步在浪漫的比薩街上。

The rain was getting heavy and heavy so that we bought the umbrellas on the street. I bought a yellow umbrella which matches my yellow bag contrasted to my dark blue coat.

原本以為一直都會是毛毛細雨,沒想到雨越下越大,一開始還很不削路邊兜售雨傘的黑人,又趕緊跑到他身旁挑起一把五歐元的傘。我買了一把黃色的雨傘,很搭配我的黃色小包。

 

索爾菲利諾橋 Ponte Solferino

 

We passed the bridge named Ponte Solferino over the river Arno. There are beautiful colorful houses along the river on the both sides and made the rainy day looked more romantic and beautiful. It looks like I were in the painting in this peaceful afternoon.

通往比薩斜塔的路上,會先經過阿諾河 (Arno)上方的索爾菲利諾橋(Ponte Solferino),兩旁彩色的房屋,讓雨後的橋墩更凸顯出她的美麗臉龐,好似在一幅水彩畫裡,感受著這靜謐的午後時光。

 

小教堂 Parrocchia di S. Michele in Borgo

 

Yellow umbrella really matches my yellow bag. At first I thought there is only The Leaning Tower of Pisa in this city, but I was totally wrong. Even it’s a small city but full of histories. I passed though the small cathedral named  “Parrocchia di S. Michele in Borgo” and love the wall outside of the building with some ancient words and stories to tell.

比薩原來不只有比薩斜塔這麼簡單,舊城區不大卻充滿著古色古香的氛圍,剛好走過一間小教堂 (Parrocchia di S. Michele in Borgo),外牆遺留下斑駁文字,充滿著歷史有味道。

 

騎士宮 Palazzo della Carovana

 

 

I found myself in this picture as the character in the 1964 old movie “Mary Poppins” in front of the Palazzo della Carovana / dei Cavalieri. Wish I could have the magic floating in the air!

拿著黃色雨傘經過騎士宮(Palazzo della Carovana / dei Cavalieri)的時候,突然覺得自己好像出現在1964年熱門的歌舞劇老電影《歡樂滿人間》(Mary Poppins)的畫面,讓我也擁有魔法飄在空中吧。

 

比薩斜塔 The Leaning Tower of Pisa

 

 

Finally,we were there! The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Torre Pendente). It should be excited to see the tower in person for the first time. But the rainy day and the grey sky didn’t make this tower look stunning actually. Never the less, we still had some fun taking some pictures with funny poses interacting from different ways with this unique architecture in the world.

終於看見傳說中的比薩斜塔 (The Leaning Tower of Pisa / Torre Pendente)了!1350年完工以大教堂的鐘樓而有名,因為下雨天,灰濛濛的天空卻讓這個細緻的雕刻斜塔顯得沒有這麼獨特,但我們還是用盡各種對於比薩斜塔的愛的視角與它有些互動,看到其他遊客拍照的模樣,大家互相較勁彼此的創意pose非常有趣。

 

大教堂廣場 Piazza del Duomo

 

 

There is a cute dog sitting on the Piazza del Duomo and waiting for his/her owner. Being kind to the world, and the world will be kind to you. Always being the Person with kindness, no matter what.

剛在大教堂廣場前看到一隻拉布拉多狗,好乖好溫馴地坐在原地等待主人前來,我們都忍不住上前跟他玩耍了一會兒,用心擁抱這世界吧。

 

比薩斜塔前的午餐時光 Eating lunch in front of The Leaning Tower of Pisa

 

We found a restaurant which is easy to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa in front of us. We ordered the simple but delicious Italian cuisine like Margret Pizza and Pasta with Tomato source. Sometimes, an unexpected and changed plan can even cheer you up like a little surprise.

最後,臨時找了一間餐廳,點了一些很基本的瑪格麗特比薩和紅醬義大利麵,坐在戶外面向著比薩斜塔吃著午餐,外頭仍然飄著一些細雨,依舊覺得很不真實,有時候,似乎不在原本計劃範圍內的計畫,好像也是個不錯的小驚喜。
