 One of the famous stops for everyone that visits Tuscany area or Flornece, Pisa is just 1h away by train from Florence, so it makes a great day trip to take a picture with the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

 Pisa is a small city, and you can see the most important historic sites in under 6h, including a scheduled visit to the Tower of Pisa located next to the Cathedral of Pisa, in Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of miracles). Is good to make an online booking to visit the tower as each hour there are allowed only a limited number of perosns inside. Using the same ticket you can also visit the cathedral.

ponte veccio2

The Ponte Vecchio (The Old Bridge) is a medieval stone arch bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Butchers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.

The bridge first appears in a document of 996. After being destroyed by a flood in 1117 it was reconstructed in stone but swept away again in 1333 and rebuilded in 1345.
