Florence & Pisa

Next we went to Florence, and Pisa! Again, it was a surreal moment seeing the Leaning Tower in person, after obviously seeing it in so many photos. I learned it was made to be a bell tower for the church right next to it. (the building to the left in the photos) That church is where Galileo was baptized! History has to be one of my favorite parts about traveling. It is mind blowing to think hundreds of years ago Galileo was here and now here I am in the same spot centuries later.

Me and my not-so-little sister Ella in Florence!
