Pisa and Tuscany Wine tasting - Florence Day 2

Florence Day 2:
Day 2 was planned for Leaning tower of Pisa and Chinati Tuscany wine tasting tour. We had decided to chill out after tight schedule of attractions in Florence, Italy. Got up late bit late and had our breakfast at the hotel.

Leaning Tower of Pisa:
We took Local train at 9 o clk from Florence terminal to Pisa Central. The train journey is one or one and half hour depending on train service you select.
On reaching the Pisa central, exit the station and cross the road to catch bus to the Leaning tower of Pisa. The ticket cost you around 1.5 Euros for Day. Inform the bus driver or fellow passengers that you want to get down at the Pisa tower. It takes almost 10 minutes to reach the site. The site is huge open ground which hosts Cathedral of Pisa City and bell tower (leaning tower) next to it. For more details you can visit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaning_Tower_of_Pisa). As any one else you will be tempted to take your picture with tower, either helping it from falling down or applying full force to make it fall. The farer you take the picture the better effect it gives to it. If you want to climb the Leaning tower of Pisa you have to book tickets in advance or depend on your luck to get one. As limited number of people are allowed to enter the tower at given time. Usually people who plan to take flight back from Pisa airport to home country and visit Tower on the way. After spending hour at the Pisa tower we decided to return back. The bus stop for Pisa central railway station is across street. We climbed in the bus and reached the station to take train to the Florence.

Afternoon Lunch Break:
Just walk out of the Florence station and cross the road. There’s Mac Donald’s in front and there are few cheap and really good Pizza Bars. As the saying goes, ‘If you are in Rome be Roman’, we had our lunch in Pizza Bar. Then headed for the Tuscan Wine tasting tour.

After the wine tasting tour, it was end of day two in Florence. We reached hotel and had dinner. It was time to prepare our self to leave for Venice next morning.
