We drove from the French side…
To the Italian side of the border.
It was a very long drive and we passed through I guess more than a hundred tunnels and very high bridges. Some bridges connect one mountain to another. Once my husband looked down and for a moment he got dizzy. Oh we’ve never seen anything like that before. Scary.
Anyway, our first stop in Italy was in Pisa.
Much to our delight, we were treated to a night of music. There was an orchestra in the tower and the people stood around it to listen.
By the time we reached our hotel, I felt like collapsing, like a truck had run me over. I was exhausted! But it was my first time in Italy and I was excited to see what was out there. Just a night’s sleep and I was ready to go out again.
We spent the night in Florence and in the morning it was fun time at the Barberini Designer Outlet. 🙂 My son wasn’t interested in any of the bag, shoes, or clothes store there. All he wanted were chocolates. Now that’s a good boy. LOL.
After Florence we headed to Rome.
