Our last day in Italy and a visit to the Leaning Tower, are we going to get that classic picture pushing the tower back up !

Evening flight back to the UK...

Live Blog

So we get up and go down to breakfast at 9.45 (finishes 10.30 ) and get told "no hot chocolate - finished", "no orange juice - finished" - as I said last night the staff here and service is horrendous"

Anyway breakfast over we walked across town to the leaning tower. Wow it certainly leans, unfortunately we were unable to get tickets as the earliest were 4pm this afternoon !!!

So we did the usual hold up the tower photo's and in the soaring heat decided to leave Pisa.

A quick taxi back to the hotel pick up our trusty Fiat 500 reg number ET .....

An hour later up the motorway north we arrived at our lunch spot Lerici... An amazing small port with castle overhead !!!

Lunch in front of the waves lapping up with views of the harbour and castle (followed by that final ice cream) we relaxed before taking the car to the airport and joining 2 1/2 hours of queues.

Although arriving 3 hours before we just got to our flight in time due to do any shopping !!!

It's 33 degrees here and the pilot has just announced "13 degrees in Leeds, very breezy and a 30% chance of rain"

Yippee, looking forward to that !!!!
