We decided to make a day trip out of our trip to Pisa and Florence. Pisa is about a 3 hour drive or so from where we live and everything we wanted to see is all located within the same walled off area. Then we made the hour drive back to Florence to see the duomo Florence(or the Cathedral of Florence and then on to eat at the Hard Rock Café, which turned out to be the best one we have been to so far, and got our shot glass and had dinner before making the drive back home. Here are some pictures from this trip.
Then at the beginning of November we decided to do another day trip but to Milan this time. We mainly just wanted to see the Duomo Milan and the shopping district. The plaza where we parked had a little market going on that we stopped and got a few things at.
