Lucca, Pisa, Monterosso al Mare

The leaning tower of Pisa is a lot more impressive in person. I didn’t even realize I wanted to see it until we turned a corner, and there it was.  Riding bikes around the city wall the Romans built around Lucca was pretty fun, too. We were dodging Italians left and right. Everyone’s off work because today’s the anniversary of Italy’s liberation from the Nazis in 1945. So it’s a great day to say, yay Allies! Monterosso al Mare was swarming with people when we arrived, but has quieted down now that it is getting toward evening. Tomorrow we will hike along the coastline to the other four towns in the Cinque Terre.
