    ... joke). We had sailed through in record time and decided to head over the Ponte Vecchio, the only bridge in Florence to escape the bombing of WWII. It is a busy bridge and a central place for tourists and street hawkers. After walking over the bridge and enjoying the view of the river, we hailed a taxi that took us up the hill to Piazzale Michelangelo.

    ... more time to really see and absorb the cities culture. Back on the bus and we are now headed to Pisa. We arrived at the city of Pisa and didn't realise how far it was from Florence and that there really wasn't anything else here other than the Square of Miracles.
