I had most of the day in left in Florence and feeling rather tired I slept in and had a late breakfast and slowly got ready. I checked out just before 11 and left my luggage at the hotel as I had a late afternoon train to Pisa. I took a walk to the Duomo again, I had to say goodbye. I knew however that I still had one more chance to see the Duomo when I returned on Easter day.
I walked through the Palazzo Medici again I saw some of the people who dress up for photographs here were two I really liked so I gave them some coins and snapped a photo I never mind giving money to someone who entertains in some way rather than just put their hand out and beg.

I walked and came across the Palazzo Medici Riccard which was the former home of the Medici family who were ruling banking family who I walked around and snapped some photos but I did not have time to visit it. I managed to get a bit lost after that trying to find my way back to my hotel. I grabbed a croissant for lunch at hotel and then headed to catch the 3 pm train to Pisa. After I checked in to my hotel I walked to the Lean which I have named the Leaning Tower of Pisa it was getting towards dusk as I snapped some photos. I was smitten by the Fallen Angel and then I had a yummy kebab in a thin wrap. All in all it was a very good day.
