We spent one night in historic Firenze (Florence) and the next day took a coach tour of the city, then out to the Tuscan countryside where millions of sunflowers were in bloom as we passed, then to Pisa, location of the famous church and bell tower, then to the museum where the marble statue of David is located. It was a very comfortable ride on a very hot day and we really enjoyed it. The leaning tower of Pisa is the adjoining church's bell tower, and we were allowed inside both. The church is very beautiful inside and has a lot of marble and gold inlaid in the arched ceilings and floors. The tower that day was undergoing some work but they allowed a few in at a time to climb its circular steps to the top for a separate fee. We just sat down on a shady spot on the grounds with our water and watched. It is pretty amazing to see those who have climbed to the top level lean out. You really get a sense of how far the building is angled. The museum with the statue of David was closed for some reason that day, but there are replicas of the statue everywhere to see and buy. I was glad to have this tour instead of having to get around ourselves or to rely on a cab.
