We got up bright and early, and decided it would be a great opportunity to head back over to our favourite square; Piazzale Michelangelo to see it without much tourists, and to try and catch the sunrise. We were greeted to some cloud cover though, but not much tourists. We had a nice little photo shoot, but then decided it was best to hit the road, as there wasn’t much chance of the sun coming through those thick clouds.
We headed West – over to probably the most famous tower in the world; The leaning tower of Pisa. This place was super filled with tourists. Everyone doing the same ‘leaning-against’ photo which was quite amusing. Gina had her own fantastic take on the photo (probably my fave photo ever). We hung around the Piazza del Duomo area for a little while, just trying to get some nice pics – including some 8 pic, stitched panorama of the Cathedral & Tower.
The whole square area where the Cathedral and tower was located was really beautiful, there was some fantastic details on the buildings, but otherwise, we found Pisa to be a bit strange. They had one other gem, the only still-standing Roman parts of this historical city, Baths of Nero which we popped over to see.
After a quick bite to eat, we headed North to Levanto. We found ourselves a beautiful little campsite called ‘Camping Acqua Dolce’ located right in the heart of the village – and had a really nice green feel to it. We setup camp, and headed straight over to the sea, as the whole coastline look amazing. I had a fun time snorkelling around, and Gina had a great time swimming around.
We headed back to the tent to chill for a couple of hours, and made sure to come back for sunset as we knew the light would be amazing with the sun setting right over the sea.
After our awesome photoshoot, and quick walk along the seafront / promenade, we headed back to the campsite for a delicious dinner at the campsite cafe, before heading to bed as we had a big walk ahead of us tomorrow!
