Today our first stop was the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa! This is truly quite a landmark! Mom and I walked around the Tower, checked it out from every possible angle and even took several of the cheesy pictures of ourselves holding up the tower, like all of the other tourists, of course. After Pisa we had a long bus ride to Northern Italy. The further north we traveled the more the scenery changed. We twisted up huge mountains and finally approached the Alps. How I would LOVE to ski here! When we finally reached Turin, I was very relieved to be out of the bus.
Although I wasn't that excited to be spending the night here, Turin turned out to be a very nice city. First of all, there was lots of great stopping! Mom and I had to hold ourselves back a little though because tomorrow we were headed for Milan. Although I couldnt imagine how the shopping could be any better there. Turin was also a very clean city, especially compared to Rome. We had a nice dinner night, then rested up for Milan!
