Another early morning took us to the Field of Miracles. Who knew how many other beautiful buildings were around the Leaning Tower of Pisa!?

Another hour and a half on a bus later, we arrived in Florence and surprisingly had time to explore on our own. I led our team on a tour and hit the highlights, a delicious lunch, way too much gelato, and some serious shopping.

One of the best parts of our days is breakfast on the terrace watching our boat arrive at our destinations and dinner watching the dock fade into the blue. (I miss breakfast most mornings … but when I’ve made it, it has been worth losing a bit of sleep.)
