finally arriving to Pisa, such a sunny day :)

If you are in Florence it doesn't take long arriving to Pisa. You have to go there! You don't even have to spend a night there. :)

 

Ready to go… I checked out from the hostel and went to the station. I left my big bag in the station in Florence and took the train to Pisa, just carrying a small backpack.

There were trains leaving to Pisa every 30min, how cool!

 

I arrived to Pisa around 11:30am and went to the Info office in order to get a map. In Lima I wasn’t able to read a map or it took me a looooong time but I became quite an expert hahaha.

Of course, I want to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Piazza del Cavalieri
The girl in the Info Office told me I could take a bus, but… I decided to walk, hahaha. It wasn’t too far away and the city is so nice that I prefer to walk through its streets and enjoy the sunny day!

 

In my way to the Leaning Tower I was able to go through different Corsos (streets) and see different Chiesas (Churches) and Piazzas. It felt so good, just walking under the sun :) I even went into a souvenir shop. Souvenirs are cheaper here than closer to the Leaning Tower. So, I got there my magnet and small stuff, something easy to carry. I just had my purse with me ;)

 

Finally I arrived to the Complex. There was not only the Leaning Tower, but also the Duomo, Baptisterio and the Cemetery.  I wasn’t able to climb to the Leaning Tower, :(

You have to wait for your turn and it takes long.

The Tower of Pisa! You have to make a line, so better arrive early.
I didn’t arrive on time. I meant, my train leaves before my turn to climb the tower, so no way to do it, so bad…

I know it’s not the same, but I visited the Baptisterio and went inside the Duomo.

 

I started walking back to the station just thinking about the train I had to catch in Florence. So I took a train as fast as possible, but… it was a WRONG TRAIN!!!! I realized I was going in the opposite direction, when I couldn't recognize any of the landscapes I was watching, mmm. I met a really friendly couple who helped me and let me know how to go back to Florence, hahaha. I don’t know how, but I ended in Viareggio. Everyone goes there in order to go to the beach. Mmm, I started missing the beach…

 

I met a woman who was waiting for the train to Firenze too, yay! So we started to talk and she was quite impressed I was backpacking by myself, hahaha. Then the train arrived and we left. Next stop: Firenze!
