Segovia is a fabulous destination in Spain. It is an easy train ride from Madrid and you can easily spend 3-days here without getting in the slightest bit bored.

The cathedral is a masterpiece and well worth doing a tour of its interior that includes a climb to the too of the bell tower. It matters not that the tour was in Spanish as the view was incredible.

Probably the highlight of Segovia though is the well preserved Roman aqueduct.

Not forgetting the fine alcazar.

When I was just a few years old I heard about the The Leaning Tower of Pisa and thought it sounded awesome. I felt like a big kid when I finally saw it for real.

I flew into Pisa with the prime destination being Florence that we reached by train.

Unfortunately it rained persistently and I got food poisoning, so not my favourite Italian city.
