Ah, now we're getting closer. There are only 4 Mondays in July. Well, nonetheless, I won't be there on a Monday, so it won't work out anyway. Too bad.

We are going from Venice to Florence for a day.  Is it worth it to stop off in Pisa?  We are taking a train.

Will you look back one day and say I was an hour away from the leaning tower and didn't go see it?

I was and I don't regret it

I heard from a tour guide that Pisa is basically only the tower with a flood of tourists taking pictures (the Chinese let the tower fall on them in the picture and the Germans push it down:))

That's funny. What do the Chinese do, cower on the ground in fear under the tower?

From west to east: PSA-FLR-VCE. It's more direct to go (via train or car) from PSA-FLR-VCE than to backtrack and go FLR-PRA-VCE (driving right by FLR).
