Lucca And Pisa. Italy. P.2

We continued walking through the city of Lucca (

Lucca And Pisa. Italy. P.1

).
There was a infinite number of churches and smaller churches - Lucca is even called The City of 100 Churches - but this time, we just walked and rested there. We did not run around the attractions with our tongues hanging out. That sounded unpleasant . . . what I mean is that we didn't miss anything because we had already seen everything and had a wonderful time :)  
By the way, I read that a few years ago, Lucca was called the best city to live in Italy. Hmm... I guess, it's debatable, since the city is so small, many people might get bored. On the other hand, there are so many other towns nearby that on weekends, you can take a drive and explore :)  
Anyway, if you want to see something of the history or just walk slowly around a pleasant Italian city, you are sure to enjoy Lucca :)
Here are some more photos that we took on the way...

Do not forget to leave your car outside the Old Town because fines there are high...

But a parking lot near the walls of the city was very convenient and free :)
And here are just a couple of words about 

Pisa:


As I have said, we were against coming here; we were tired of the city and its airport. Sometimes this happens after extensive periods of traveling. 
But this time, we had no choice. After sitting at the station for nearly an hour, and then walking around the city aimlessly, we tried to avoid the 

Piazza dei Miracoli

. Given the high volume of tourists there throughout the day, you can only go once to take pictures. There are so many people that you can easily become overwhelmed :(
We were lucky that we saw a small local market right next to the station; I love such markets! Usually, I do not buy anything there, I cannot imagine buying trinkets that I do not necessarily need, but I really like to look around. 
So we wandered there :)

And we went for a little walk along neighboring streets...
