Patricia and John from the USA have arrived in Italy a few days ahead of the start of our Best of Italy tour. They are both pretty tough as they walked the city of Rome already 2 days before. And since they had seen many sights already, we planned on finding some out-of-the-normal things to see. And indeed, we did.
What an exciting day !! We started from Assisi to San Marino, the oldest republic. The 5th smallest country in Europe. We were looking for a mobile phone-found, we see the way to the goal - found, we missed a wallet - Italy are very honest people - thank you!!! a very eventful day. with wonderful impressions of urbanien and Tuscany. tomorrow we continue
A long riding day was promised to us in the daily briefing. But it wasn't to bad in the end anyways as the weather was very nice. And the roads along the coast and over Passo Muraglione made time flying by. However, it was a Sunday and thus, we had to share the road with more people than there are usually out there.
Today is our rest day in Florence. The majority of tour members wanted to go and see the city of Florence and its sights.
But we had two motivated riders who wanted to spend the morning with riding the half-day loop into the near-by mountains.
Today, the city of Pisa was the highlight of our day, respectively its famous leaning tower.
