hey all,
so im doing the european whirl and we dont get to go to pisa. however we are in florence for a short stay and was wondering who has been to florence and/or pisa. which in your opinion is better. i really wanna see pisa but dont want to miss florence.
was thinking maybe do stuff with group until lunch, 4 hrs or so should be enough to get to pisa, have a look at the leaning tower, get back and be in florence with the group for dinner.
thoughts?

    Florence is way better then Pisa. There is nothing much other then shopping (the touristy junk gifts) and the tower. Personally I loved Florence and Pisa was meh, There is so much to see in Florence anyway. :)

    You can climb the Duomo (400+ steps going up). The view from the top is amazing beyond words. You can see a 360 view of Florence from really high up. There are lots of amazing places that have great photo ops as well. And shopping. Tons of shopping.

    And the shopping is actual places and not tourist items. Although they do have them, it is way better then Pisa for that at least.

    I did Italian Espresso, We had a few days in Florence and i still didn’t get to see everything. Personally though Pisa was only good for 15-30mins. Just for the photos of the tower.

    i just googled that duomo, looks pretty awsome. ah man, why do we only have one night in florence, maybe i can do both, do some of the sightseeing with the group when we arrive on first day, then go to pisa, and then the second day (if i have time i guess) do some more and then off to swiss alps.
    hmmm…why does this have to be so hard lol
