Anyway. Here are some more photos, in an attempt to hold onto holiday feeling while simultaneously accomplishing real things.
We took a day-trip to Siena on a whim, and I'm so glad we went. Siena is much smaller and quieter than Florence - there are small, narrow streets and alleys in both places, but somehow in Siena we could duck into these and find silence, rather than the constant whine of scooters.

Where Florence was dramatic and full of contrast, Siena was more subtle.

And not without awesome details.

In Pisa, we once again paid loads of money (€15, gack) to climb up a tall tower, and once again I was surprised at the colourful marble inlayed around the outside. There has been so much restoration done on this thing that it's practically brand new. Still rather impressive, though!
|Yeah, it leans.|
