My friend Marcie was visiting a friend in Italy so she took a train to meet us in Florence, got in our car, and we drove west towards Lucca and Pisa before putting Marice back on the train and heading North to Liguria.
Lucca is one of many walled cities. I love walled cities for some reason. Lucca was no exception.
We wandered around the city for awhile. It was very cute and has A LOT of churches, but we had limited time if we wanted to make it to Pisa.
We had to have a little lunch before leaving Lucca. Fresh mozzarella is truly delicious. Nom, nom, nom.
Then we headed to Pisa. I couldn't drive through it without stopping to see the Leaning Tower.
I am glad I visited, but I was a little disappointed. It was SOOOOO touristy. Ya know the token picture where it looks like you are pushing on the tower? Well all of my photos have 3 or 4 people at various points in the picture pretending to push on it. But because I wasn't taking their picture, it just looks like a whole lot random people walking like zombies through my pictures.
