More cruise pics

Our second cruise port was Civitavecchia.  It was on that day that the rail workers decided to go on strike, causing disruptions to travel plans for people planning to go into Rome.  We had been selective about our shore excursions anyway ($$) and on this day we chose to explore Civitavecchia.  We loved the relaxed atmosphere and the 'smallness' of it.


Our third port was Florence.  This time we got clever.  My husband is super thorough at reading up about places and we learnt that if you gathered a group and caught a taxi together, it worked out much cheaper.  And the taxis are geared up for it - they take you on a tour for a day and you pay them at the end.

So seven of us were given a magnificent tour of Florence and Pisa.

The Ponte Vecchio, famous for its jewellery shops.  This year is our 20th Wedding Anniversary AND a significant birthday for me (21 AGAIN!!) so hubby treated me.

I didn't realise I was actually ON the bridge at first!

So many people.

Onto the Leaning Tower of Pisa - such a breathtaking sight.  These places are always so different to how you imagine them.  I was expecting some sort of long approach to it but the taxi dropped us off and there it was, just round the corner, saying SURPRISE!!
Plenty of people doing this.
Oh, OK, I did it too!
Returned to our cabin to find a crab in our bed!
Thanks for stopping by!
