People Watching In Pisa

What would it have been if the tower wasn’t leaning? If they decided to destroy it after the first story sank halfway into the ground? How much does tourism do for a city? Why are people so excited by the novelty but in all the excitement they end up acting and doing like everyone else? Would Pisa still exist to travelers without the tower? Would people come to see the city itself? Or would it just turn into a sleepy Italian town filled with more history than tourists?

I guess we will never know because they continued to build it despite the tilt. And when they pushed for stabilization their only condition was that it would still be leaning. I guess it’s safe now, at least for the next 200 years. So get your picture with it while you still can.
