Short but sweet

Just an hours tour of the leaning tower and cathedral. Roberto the guide was informative and passionate about 'his Pisa'. Meeting point is difficult to find-I just happened to find my group after wandering around for 10 minutes!

We had such a fantastic day. The Tour guide who took us around Pisa was very well informed and friendly. However, the restaurant where the wine tasting (amazing) takes place doesn't include lunch, which was a bit confusing, but it was stated in the description. Lucca is also amazing, we had just enough time to explore it.
