What a change from Florence, it was quiet and very picturesque. The town is known for marble and sculpture and there are a number of them in the main square. As a result of the nearby marble quarries it is also very "arty". We wandered through the narrow streets looking in all the shops and boutiques. The girls bought a couple of items but in main very restrained - I think there will be a repeat shopping excursion here.
After the boys had a quick haircut at the local hairdresser we travelled home via the beach. This is know as Marina d Pietrasanta. It was the typical Mediterranean beach with sunbeds and cabanas as far as the eye could see. After a walk along the beach we headed home for a swim and huge roast beef cooked by our resident expert chef Bill (Heathers sister Hilda's husband).
In the evening Colin and Heather started up a bit of a party night while Sam, Jack and Cesare went in and picked up Sam from Pisa Airport. Sam made it safely to the villa after a huge 36 hours of flying and changing planes and was in remarkably good form when he arrived at the villa.
Heather and Colin of course partied on.....
