Once again armed with the 5MP D7 and with the 4MP Canon S40. 1076 pictures taken, so lots (particularly a lot of ornate art work on churches which didn't resize well for the web) missed out!
First we stayed in La Spezia:
...and visited Portovenere, taking a boat to and walking on the adjacent island of Palmaria
...and also walking in the Cinque Terre
Then a hectic time in Pisa:
...including going up the Leaning Tower:
Then Florence, where I took far too many pictures, since it is a beautiful place
A day trip to Fiesole:
and Vescovado (a view of the neighbouring village of Murgo)
And finally (and most restfully) the walled city of Lucca:
And the last trip out to Grotta del Vento:
