Easy day today. Off to the medieval walled town of Lucca, just an hour from Florence and then on to Pisa. Pisa is more than the Leaning Tower – it used to be a powerful maritime Republic in the Middle Ages. The Field of Miracles (pictured above) is the site of one of Italy’s most beautiful Cathedrals and a magnificent baptistry. And of course that Leaning Tower.
Returned to the hotel to find that 120 cyclists have checked in and taken the whole place over. Will be glad to get out of here tomorrow.
