Pisa, Italy

The Leaning Tower of Pisa

October 14th, 2016

October is a quiet month; nothing is really going on, summer is over and you’re in that lingering stage between Autumn and Christmas. So to spice things up; the girls and I decided on a last minute get away in Europe. After much discussion over sushi and green tea, Italy was our first choice.

So our first stop was Pisa. We only stayed there for one night because it’s such a small town. We had stumbled across this small independent family-owned seafood restaurant called Nando, in the middle of Pisa (about a 15 minute walk from the leaning tower). With homemade pasta and fresh seafood-you can’t really go wrong. It was all relatively cheap too with each dish costing around a tenner each.

The next morning we woke up at the crack of dawn to visit the Tower of Pisa-which was a lot smaller than I thought! Got there, took some touristy snaps (like true Asians), faffed around for an hour and then decided it was time for food!

Pisa itself was really small and quiet. If I’m honest, the nightlife is not great; it was very much a relaxing, historic cultured kind of holiday. Perfect for couples who want to get away for a romantic weekend.

So next stop: Florence! We took the train from Pisa stopping off in Luca for a couple of hours.
