Day 10 - Pisa and the Florence American Cemetery Memorial

Leaning Tower of Pisa

So no trip to Italy would be complete without seeing the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa! I never realized that the tower also had a beautiful domed Baptistery in front of it as well as an interesting cathedral. We also got to tour the cemetery building beside the cathedral.

The visit to the Florence American Cemetery was moving. It really moved me to walk among those Crosses and Stars of David. Here isa little info on the cemetery courtesy of the American Battle Monuments Commission.
