On our way to Florence from La Spezia we decided to stop off at Pisa, to take the obligatory leaning photo before heading on to Florence. I’m glad we stopped off in Pisa if only because I will never have to go back there. It is probably a nice ... Read more >

Buon Appetito!

ITALY | Wed, 20 Aug 2014 | By aeileenr | Views [1097]
