Today I embarked on an adventure with Peter, one of my classmates, he is from Switzerland and he works for the Swiss Train Company. Peter brought along another classmate of his, Daniel, a nice young man who works in agriculture raising cows and growing corn in Switzerland. We decided to go to Pisa and after that we left it open to a few possibilities; maybe head out to Livorno, Lucca or Viareggio. From Santa Maria Novella we took the train to Pisa Centrale.
I've been to Pisa before but I was looking forward to be able to spend some extra time in the city, as my first visit was a quick one to the Fields of Miracles and then back to Lucca. And since I've never been to Livorno or Viareggio, and I just love Lucca, all the afternoon possibilities seemed A-OK! to me
We arrived to Pisa Centrale and walked to the Fields of Miracles. You can take a bus but walking gives you the opportunity to wander through the streets of Pisa. It's a quick 20 minute walk.
For a Sunday morning Pisa was full of life, lots of people out walking, kids in the piazzas, and the cafe's slowly filling up. We really couldn't have picked a better day to go as the un was shinning bright and there was not a single cloud in the sky.
