Wanderlust: Pisa

Our next stop on our Italian adventure was visiting Pisa! I’m not going to lie, seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa has been on my bucket list for sometime. Seeing it in person was very different than what I ever could have imagined. Believing that hey, maybe the ground is on a slant, or maybe the foundation gave way. There was every intention of the building being straight, but somewhere the building became tilted. The Leaning Tower is actually a Bell Tower in the Piazza dei Miracoli that goes with the Duomo di Pisa in the plaza and two other buildings.
We had a fun time exploring the Plaza of Miracles, and of course we had to get pizza in Pisa. Check out our pictures below!

We tried so many times to get the iconic picture of “pushing” the tower back straight. Let’s just say someone didn’t understand the concept….

Is Pisa a place that is on your bucket list? Until next time,

Wanderlust: La Spezia

While on our tour of Italy last fall we stayed in La Spezia in order to get to Cinque Terre. We didn’t get to explore the small city very much, but we did have two fabulous dinners there. The city is beautiful and easily walkable much like every other Italian city. We stayed at Hotel Firenze, which had a delicious breakfast in the morning and a great balcony view of the city. Hera are some pictures of our limited time in La Spezia.

This is the lovely hotel we stayed in La Spezia. The hotel is kind of small, and only has one tiny elevator, but luckily they have stairs and the floors aren’t too far apart.

Here’s a picture of the two of us enjoying one of those amazing dinners in La Spezia. Look at those wine glasses!!
We enjoyed our stop over in La Spezia, and it is the perfect place to stay to get to Cinque Terre as that is only a short train ride away. Come back soon to see my post on Cinque Terre to figure out why people from all over the world come to visit the rocky island cities! Until next time,
