This morning we woke up early and headed towards Monterosso Al Mare with a stop off in Pisa. The drive was gorgeous. We arrived in Pisa around lunch time and spent some time in Piazza Dei Miracoli…the location of the Leaning Tower, Pisa’s Duomo, Baptistry and Camposanto. The tower is of course an impressive sight. It truly looks like it could topple over at any minute…however we learned that extreme measures have been taken to ensure that the tower continues to lean, but doesn’t lean too much that it would ever fall, after all it brings in a lot of Euro! We were also impressed with the lesser known sights in the Piazza. Buildings that date back as much as nearly a thousand years and some that have a slight lean of their own. After that we spent some time exploring the winding alleys and streets of Pisa and loved the low key laid back nature of the town. We then completed our drive to Monterosso Al Mare on the coast. Here we will be for the next few days hiking and exploring the villages and beaches of the Cinque Terre. Oh, and by the way, Sophie did get some gelato tonight….”Did she like it?” you may ask….see for yourself.
