Florence and Pisa, Italy


Florence was my 3rd and favorite city of Italy. Here you can see the entire town from a hill!IMG_4937

Michelangelo’s David is made into several statues all over the city.

Behind me is the Basilica of Santa Croce. It is known as the temple of Italian Glories as Michelangelo and Galileo are buried here.

I had to see the view from the top of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, better known as ‘Duomo’IMG_5016IMG_5015

It was well worth the climb!IMG_5033

This is a great view of Ponte Vecchio, or Old Bridge, as it is the last bridge in Florence with buildings on it. All the others were blown up during World War II.IMG_5063

No trip to Florence is complete without stopping at the Boboli Gardens. It is a large open air museum that makes you realize you are in the middle of Tuscany. IMG_4975

The pasta in Florence was so good, I finished all of it!


A short train ride from Florence is Pisa, the small town famous for its leaning tower!IMG_4846

There is also a church next to the Tower.IMG_4878

What a nice day to see the Piazza dei Miracoli.

Did you climb to the top of the Duomo in Florence and or the top of the Tower of Pisa?
