Pictures in Pisa

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Today we woke up fairly early to take the train out to Pisa.  We took dozens of the obligatory "look at me holding up the tower!" pictures.  Luckily everyone around us was doing the same so we had no problem acting touristy.

After returning by train to Florence we decided that we wanted to trek back up to Piazza Michelangelo to see a view of the city at sunset.  We had been told it was beautiful at sunset and, remembering the amazing gelato that waited for us at the top, we headed up.  We reached the top and waited.  Even in the evening it was well over 100 degrees and it was painful to even sit on the stone steps without feeling like you were burning a hole through your clothes.  We continued to wait and the sun did not seem to move.  We realized that we were going to have to wait another two hours before the sun went down.  We also didn't think of the fact that we would be walking all the way across the city back to our hostel in the dark.  We decided to head back without seeing the full sun set however it was still absolutely beautiful.
