With our time in Switzerland at an end, we loaded our luggage on the bus and headed to Italy. By this time, we could load and unload the bus fairly quickly since we had done it several times and we had all claimed our space on the bus. We arrived in Pisa several hours later.
When the bus stopped we found a small train waiting for us. It was going to drive us closer to the Leaning Tower. It was really bumpy but we all had a lot of fun riding it. When we arrived we saw many horse-drawn carriages and souvenir vendors. Of course, we had to take pictures of us holding up the leaning tower. We only had a couple hours in the city so we ate lunch and shopped while we were there.
Back on the bus, for another hour or so, we drove to Florence. We arrived at the restaurant a little early, so we sat and waited. This was my favorite dinner of the entire trip. I must have gone back for food at least three times. They had all-you-can-eat pasta, fruit and chicken served buffet style.
After dinner, we walked along the river and Sabrina told us a little about Florence.
Reaching the hotel we were happily surprised to discover it had air conditioning. We hadn’t used air conditioning since arriving in Europe. It was a cool break J
