Exploring Florence & Pisa

Leaning Tower of Pisa

 Trip to Vienna, Venice, Florence and Rome

After spending a week in Vienna and spending a day in Venice, it was then time to spend 2 nights in Florence. I've never been to Florence before so I was really very excited when we explored the city especially when we went to see the famous paintings of Boticelli and Da Vinci inside the Uffizi Galleries as well as the David sculpture of Michelangelo in Accademia Gallery. It was really hot and the queues were long but it did not stop us from exploring the marvelous sights. On our way to Rome, we made a stop to Pisa to see the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa which was a joy to see for the first time. Below are some of the photos I took during this trip.
