I figured it's about time that I start blogging about Italy and actually include some photographs. It was such a fun trip with great scenery and wonderful new friends!
We went for a leisurely (I love how American's say this word) stroll along part of the wall surrounding Lucca.
Then we saw Pisa!!!!! I'm a little too lazy to open any graphics programs to change it the right way.
I believe this is San Gimignano. The tower in the background is a little misty but it was amazing to see.
We stopped for a lovely 'caffe americano' while debating about whether to climb 218 steps to the top of a tower.
Which we then did. The worst part was the steep ladder at the top but the views were definitely worth it. I came down that steep ladder very slowly and held onto the hand rail all the way down. Wish I'd taken a photo of that ladder!!
Just before getting onto the coach to leave San Gimignano for our first winery.
