A weekend in Pisa for a price of a Pizza

It is astonishing how cheap you can travel in Europe. I paid only € 25 for a round trip flight between Paris and Pisa on February 2015! And that was a really amazing spontaneous weekend in Pisa and Florence with awesome friends.

Italian Food

Of course, the first thing that you want to do in Pisa is to eat Pizza and mingle with italian people. Upon arrival, we met Chiara (a very cute italian lady) who took us for a walk around the city. We concluded the tour by eating Pizza and Ice cream! Ooops sorry if I am making you feel hungry at this moment …

Arno

This did not conclude the night, we were very energetic and wanted to go to see the Pisa tower at night. The light reflexions at the Arno river grabbed our attention.

And that is the Arno river in daylight, or me showing off LOL nevermind.

Leaning Tower of Pisa

Anyway, we sneaked around to prepare a magic trick 😉 Do you recall, not long ago… (you know the rest of the song, don’t you?)

The next morning, the Pisa tower needed some tweaking. The Hulk is coming to Italy!

Florence

We spent the rest of the weekend in Florence! I admire the city architecture and the conviviality of the people.

You cannot visit an Italian city without trying the restaurants. Specially, if you’re going to visit some recommended restaurants by locals.

We were very lucky ’cause it was the first Sunday of the month. The entrance tickets for all the museums are free.
