A quick stop , through the church at the Palace and off out before too many crowds. Wow the place reeks of money. A drive along some of the Grand Prix route. Past more money in yachts than NZ s GNP( at a guess ) Then fantastic scenery along the coast to Pisa ... 167 tunnels and too many corners to count
Enter tunnel in France and out in Italy.
Ahh Italy. Olive trees, terraced slopes, majestic mountains, heat, tiny beaches below us, toll bridges, sunflower beds
Well have to say the tower and plaza of Pisa are exceptional. Such beautiful design and intricate work. I really didn't expect the tower to be so beautiful. All the buildings in the square worth the visit. The place is surrounded by tourist shops and cafes. Busy, hot, loud. Cute little open " trains " to transport us from the coach parking all added to the delight of Pisa.
Finally we arrived in Montecatini our stop for the evening. An after dinner walk ... Debbie and Anne continued up the funicular to visit the old town while I opted for some peace and quiet
