My Garmin GPS has the Italian maps added. It really has worked great with one note, it prefers back roads vs. highways. So our trip to Pisa took quite a bit longer than expected but the views through Castel San Gimignano, Volterra and San Giovani were breathtaking. The hills of Tuscany are captivating. Pisa, on the other hand, was surprisingly more industrialized than I had expected and it was the largest tourist trap so far with thousands of photographers trying to get that magical shot of there fellow travelers holding up the leaning tower. We did not climb the 255 steps to the top having just climbed the 70 steps to the top of the baptistery. Instead, we went to a local establishment and enjoyed some great pasta and grilled vegetables. This is turning out to be one of our greatest pleasures of all, eating and drinking in Italy. Even though the Cathedral of Pisa was the prize of the day, I selected my picture of the Tower because it is a geometric beauty and a marvel it is still standing.
