The port was Livorno, but our destination was Florence, the jewel of the Renaissance and then on to mid-evil city of Pisa to see its famous leaning tower. Our focus in Florence was the Cathedral (the Duomo) and the bell tower, the Baptistery and its beautiful gilded bronze doors that Michelangelo named “Gates of Paradise” and the Ponte Vecchio, a 14th century bridge that spans the Arno River. The highlight of the Accademia, a small but impressive museum, is Michelangelo’s original statute of “David.”

On to Pisa, a beautiful 45-minute drive from Florence. Gathered around the “Field of Miracles” are the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Campanile (bell tower) better known as the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. The Tower, as well as the other buildings, glowed in the afternoon sun; the sight was magnificent. Pisa was established in 1073 and played an important role in the First Crusade. It is said that Galileo, a native of Pisa, used the Cathedral to study movement of the pendulum and the Leaning Tower to work out his laws of gravity and acceleration. Now that is history!
