Pisa & Cinque Terre Day 5
It’s clear when you get off the train that the only thing Pisa can be known for is its leaning tower. We checked our bags at the train station and hiked to the leaning tower to get the famous “push or prop” photos. Some of them didn’t turn out so accurate… but hey, we tried.
After 30 minutes of taking pictures, we headed back to the train station to our final destination for the day, Vernazza, in Cinque Terre. This quaint city is full of local charm and breathtaking views.
We met Egy at the train station and he showed us to our rooms (more like a sweat box). Italians are known for not having A/C in smaller coastal towns… but holy moly. Jack, by far had the best room with his views of “dirty laundry”, an 85 degree room, and no A/C or fan to circulate any air.
After taking showers to try to cool ourselves off, we headed just a few hundred yards down the main and only street in the city to the pier. To think of the locals that live here and these views are normal to them every day.
We had dinner at the top of the city and enjoyed gelato as we strolled the town throughout the evening.
Tomorrow, hiking to the nearby town of Monterosso and relaxing in the sun!
