italian day trips
July 3, 2016 | Travel
In Italy we spent our time driving through the countryside on day trips. We started out in Pisa where we visited the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It was a beautiful landmark with even more beautiful surroundings, most of the medieval cities in Italy are pretty run down but much to our surprise, Pisa was very well kept.

We also checked out the Marina and beach. The beaches were very different from the beaches in France. The substrate was very pebble-y and the water was a lot darker. We spent an hour or two walking around and enjoying the Italian coast.
Our home base for the week was Lucca! An ancient walled city, it's filled with history and beautiful scenery. The city was the perfect way to capture Tuscany. We ate some amazing food and found some cool shops. The city was a lot larger than we expected and filled with Italian charm.
More to come from our Italian adventures soon :)
