Florence (and Pisa)

It's Tuesday, so this must be Florence and the Leaning Tower of Pisa!

The leaning tower is in the Field of Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli) which includes not only the leaning tower, but also the Baptistry and the Pisa Cathedral. The leaning tower is the bell tower for the cathedral.

Once in Florence, we did a guided walking tour of the historical center and visited the Accademia Gallery where Michaelangelo's David resides as does a very cool collection of old instruments, the Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiore (very interesting colors of marble used: green, pink, white), then some more strolling around and a stop at a cafe.

All the day's photos are here.

They tried their best.

Happy Hour on the boat with much of the gang.
