Marina di Pisa

It’s taken my a little while to get this post up (sorry) and it already seems life a lifetime ago that we were at Marina di Pisa. It was actually back in July.

As you’ll know, we are getting to know Tuscany very well by now. Our family live approximately thirty minutes in the car from Pisa Airport and we do the drive regularly when we’re there, picking up guests and dropping visitors off.

It was our first full night away from the little lady, so it had even bigger meaning for us…we’d get to sleep! Woohoo! Who says romance is dead?

So we booked the most amazing air bnb right on the river, with views of the Ponte Vecchio (separate post on that coming soon!). In fact, the Ponte Vecchio was within touching distance. It really had the wow-factor and we were gutted to only be there one night, as we could’ve easily sat on our balcony and watched the world go by with a bottle of Prosecco, all night.Continue reading
