I’m glad we did, because although it probably won’t make your must-see list it reaffirmed that getting off the beaten path is always a good idea. […]

Pisa & Lucca: A Tale of Two Cities

Pisa and Lucca are neighboring Italian cities that provide completely different experiences. We visited them both on the same day and enjoyed what they each had to offer. Visiting them as a pair will round out your trip, one for checking off a must-see and the other providing an authentic experience. Pisa Pisa was our […]
