Love the architecture
Pinocchio in PisaThe interesting thing I learned is that the Leaning Tower of Pisa is not the only leaning tower. Check below.
Select leaning buildingsDriving across Tuscany countryside was simply amazing! We saw lots of sunflowers fields and of course since sunflower is my absolute favorite flower my wonderful hubby made sure to stop at a few fields and let me run free around them=)

Sunflower closeupGirasoli, which is what Italians called sunflowers sun turn. Gira means “turn”, and sole means “sun. Have you ever noticed that a sunflower will be point its’ face to the East in the morning and by the last light of the evening, it will have turned to be facing the sunrise? The sunflower moves itself in the most direct position in front of the sun so it can get the maximum sun rays, so the sun always shine on their “face”. I LOVE sunflowers. Sunflowers is one of Nature’s happiest of flowers and, to me no flower can lift spirits quite like sunflower can. I think is a lot of photos for a post, I will leave the rest of our Tuscany trip to San Gimignano and Montepulciano for the next post.
