Description

A view of the Piazza dei Miracoli looking from the Baptistery towards the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The main focus of the image is the Baptistery, which is a circular structure surmounted with a dome. The facade of the Cathedral is the next structure seen behind the Baptistery, followed by the belfry (Leaning Tower of Pisa). A road leads the eye towards the background of the image.
