Pisa from the Air

By TrevBatWCC    
It's goodbye Pisa! On returning home from my holiday there, took these images from the plane just after take-off, looking back down on the city. Though the image in the last version isn't particularly good (it took much tweaking to reduce the strong haze in the top half), it does show just how close the airport is, to the south of the city. Its main building is just over 3 km from the Cathedral and Tower, which is north of the city centre in the Piazza del Duomo, and only 1 km away from Pisa's railway station, which is about midway between the Arno River and the airport.

A fine view... always thought that Italian architecture looks better from above...when you get to street level it's a different matter 😁

Interesting set Trev. Aerial views like this often show how compact and squeezed together medieval cities were (are). A fitting farewell to your visit.

I love those red roofs - somebody had a vision with town planning.
I also love your knowledge of the proximity of all those landmarks.
You could do guided tours!

I'm trying to spot the leaning tower. It's a bit like Where's Wally. Smile
Can't find it though.

I am always amazed when looking down from a plane just how crammed with buildings our cities are. A great set Trev.

Impressive captures and a wonderful Trev, it is such a beautiful city. Always sorry to leave.

What a fine set, Trev! Love the mixture of the centuries here, it must span the best part of 2000 years, and no doubt older if we had x-Ray vision and could see underground. Top aerial work, and your tweaking in v.4 works a treat 👌
Found the leaning tower in the lead image, visibly making its statement against the vertical 😀
