Book Research Trip to Italy Part 4

My previous posts have shared our adventures in Rome and the museums and churches in Florence. Today, it's all about Pisa! 

Our driver left us with an expert guide and Segway instructor. Since we were already expert (Ha!) Segway drivers, we didn’t need more instructions, so we hopped on our Segways and began our three-hour tour. It started with a glide through the Piazza dei Miracoli to see the Duomo, Baptistery, and the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa. WOW! It was another one of those experiences where I turned the corner and there it was. It was breathtaking! 

I discovered in Venice that this isn't the only leaning tower in Italy. It's just the most famous. I'm so glad we included Pisa in our Italy tour!

I had to get the typical tourist picture! How'd I do?

Leaving the Piazza, we rode through the shopping district of the Borgo Stretto until we reached the Arno River. Isn't it beautiful? Zipping along the river was a real adventure.

We had a blast and could have easily extended the tour. If you get a chance to jump on a Segway, give it a try. It’s SO much fun!

Monday I’ll share pictures of our trip to the Tuscany wine country.  


Happy writing and running, Kathy
