the Duomo in Pisa
cathedral in Pisa
We arrived in Pisa around lunch so we dined on some pizza and Coca-Cola Light in Pisa!
The Leaning Tower of Pisa - yep, it leans
of course we had to do the touristy poses
I'm so strong
David is housed in the Accademia. He's MUCH larger than life. But unfortunately, we could not take a picture. But we took one outside.
We then headed to the famous Duomo. The architecture was absolutely stunning.

I fell in love with this nativity scene. If you notice, Baby Jesus isn't there because he has not been born. He will appear on Christmas. Amazing!

After the Duomo, we decided to walk around. Let me say, before this trip, I was not a fan of Florence, but I quickly fell in love this time!
How cool is this map of Florence? Easy way to find your way!
After a wonderful farewell dinner, we headed back to the Vatican to see if they had lit the HUGE tree. Unfortunately, they had not, but it was still a sight to see.
We also had to take a few last minute pics of one of our favorite places in the world!
After dinner and roaming Rome one last time, we caught a train back to our hotel. Ciao, Roma!
Little did we know a 26 hour trip home was ahead of us! But, we won't let that put a damper on our wonderful vacation!
Our trip was absolutely amazing. We experienced great sights, people and food. December was a great time to visit because the lines were long and the weather wasn't so hot. If you ever get the chance, you should visit one of my favorite countries in the world!
