Small Italian towns
Today we packed our bags and head out of our hotel to visit the towns of Lucca and Pisa. Both these towns are walled cities with old churches and old buildings. I have to admit, all the churches are running together (mom say a prayer for me). In Lucca we visited the home of Pucchini, an Italian composer, whom I didn't know about until this trip. In Pisa we visited the infamous leaning tower. Both cities were beautiful and had the typical European streets and shops. The highlight of today was arriving at our new hotel.....on the Italian Rivera. We can see the Sea from our balcony. The next three days we will be visiting the towns by the sea. Below are some photos from our day.
This is The village of Lucca
This is one of those groups that try to get money from the tourist...can you figure out how they are doing it...
Here is the leaning tower of Pisa....a sight I was excited to see
A couple of things about the leaning tower. First, in all the pictures you just see the tower, but it is actually right beside a huge church that is equally beautiful. Second, the tower is leaning because it is sinking on one side. This pic shows that the right is about 4 feet deep, while he left is only about 1 foot.
This was taken from the bus window on the way to the coast.....just what you imagine Italy to look like
And last but not least, a view from our new hotel room
Not bad, huh!
Here's our agenda for tomorrow
Nighty , night.
