    We are heading Tuscany for a week then Florence for 3 days (plus our half day of driving up from cetona). Wondering if we should try and hit either lucca or Pisa on that half day driving up or should we lose a full day in Florence to take the train to these two cities.. We are going towards the end of February so I don’t anticipate crowds being an issue..

    Yes there are lots of wonderful places in Pisa, Italy . Plus it is relaxing and have a panorama view that everyone will be impressed and amazed. If you are looking for a place that is perfect for relaxation where you can have a peace of mind then come to Pisa and enjoy the place. You can check our bed and breakfast resort []. I am proud to invite you and experience the place. THanks for giving good feedback with the city JO 🙂

    what you’ve written somehow tells me what to expect in Pisa.. I’m planning to go there hopefully next year.. 🙂 I just want to clarify though. is there a need for me to purchase tickets just to see (or take pictures of ) the monuments in the Campo dei Miracoli even with no intention of getting in or going up? Thanks!
