The Famous Leaning tower of Pisa
On the Road again, left a cold rainy Florence for Rome. On the way we made a stop in Pisa there we saw the famous Piazza Del Miracoli with its Leaning Tower, the Baptistery, and the Duomo witch is another way of saying a massive church. We only had an hour which only gave us time to see everything from the outside still the buildings were pretty impressive. . Darcy would of liked to have climbed the steps inside the tower Lou has climbed enough steps for a while. The weather there was a little better but still cold and cloudy. Back on the bus, for four more hours to Rome. We are staying in the hotel we were in before. For dinner 12 of us went to a Roman Restaurant, Tanagra, a Caffe Concerto. The food was fair, the Operatic singing was quite good. After that we got a nighttime tour of Rome very impressive. Back at the hotel we all said good bye, this is our last night of the tour and some have very early wake-up calls.
We made some great friendships on this tour that we would like to continue. We hope that everybody has a safe flight home and maybe we will have a reunion in the near future.
