Last week the Nina and the Pinta sailed into Pittsburgh, well okay not the original ships that Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue with but the reproductions of The Nina and The Pinta. The two ships are docked next to Heinz field until November 15, 2009.
The website for the ships is – http://www.thenina.com/ – but it doesn’t have any info about their stop in Pittsburgh. From what I have read on the internet the ships are open for tours daily from 9am – 4pm daily. I think the tickets are $7.
Here is a video about the ships from the Tribune Review:
