In Life, its not where you go, it’s who you travel with. We leave the drama and attention seekers to their own little groups and enjoy life with people with goals and an appetite for adventure.

PISA, ITALY




Vistas of undulating hills, rows of cypress trees, terraced vineyards, olive groves, and rural villages form the backdrop of our journey through beautiful Tuscany. We took a break in Pisa to see the SQUARE OF MIRACLES and the amazing Leaning Tower, then on to Florence.



Pisa, Italy is best known for its leaning tower, but there is so much more to see in this Tuscan town. Piazza dei Miracoli, the area around the cathedral and the tower, is beautiful, and a visit can easily occupy several hours. Pisa was one of the four great maritime republics in the Middle Ages, and it retains a good selection of monuments from that era. There's also the Arno River, a university, and several interesting museums.
It's a good city for strolling and enjoying at a leisurely pace.
Pisa is located in the northern half of Tuscany, not far from the coast and about an hour west of Florence.


Okay, I'm going to be very honest with you all--there really is not a ton to see or do in Pisa. However, if you'd like to stop for the famous pic with the leaning tower, I recommend just making it short stop in the city for an hour or two.  We went on a lovely day, and were able to get some fun pictures--but other than the famous quirky tower, there really is not a whole lot to do.



It really was such a beautiful day.
I have to make a confession though. This may hurt a bit...but I have to be honest: the leaning tower was SO much smaller than I ever imagined! I legitimately thought it was going to be much taller then it is. It's really not very big at all.

Also, I know you can buy tickets to go inside! We did not do this, but if you want to spend a little bit longer there--that's always an option.

Our Journey

We started our blog “tony&kimoutdooradventures.blogspot.com”, in 2015 after our great 5 week adventure in Europe. We’ve had so many adventures, we decided to start a blog to capture and show our family and close friends in Australia and many Overseas on what we get up to. On our sometimes long work days we realized most of the travel blogs we were reading were people who had quit their jobs, sold all of their belongings and travel full-time. While this way of life is admirable, it’s not reality for a lot of people so we created this space on the internet as a way to show others you can have the best of both worlds. We are happily married for 10+ years and both of us have great challenging and rewarding jobs and a house almost paid off. Plus in 2016 we added our Kelpie pup Shari to our Adventures.
