We’ve altered our objectives for the remainder of the trip. Two reasons really: 1) the weather over Italy looks to be getting stormy, and 2) I’m getting a bit fed up with paying a fortune for taxis everywhere.
So Lucca is off the schedule. The main aim of Lucca was to fly there on Tuesday morning, spend the day there and then take the train to Pisa on Wednesday. Many people have said there is not much to do in Pisa so rather than land, knock up another €120 in landing, parking and taxi fees we’d give it a miss. We can always Ryanair there sometime.
Instead we are going to fly direct to Cannes. This is a 90min sector, flying over Pisa, Genoa and Albenga to track the coast. We’ll spend a couple of days in Cannes and then decide where to go from there. It looks like it may be stormy in England Friday and Saturday, so we either fly home on Thursday or move on to somewhere like Troyes or Paris for the weekend and fly home on Sunday.
Flexibility is the keyword for the rest of the trip, we have booked the Holiday Inn Cannes for Tuesday night but that’s it – so we’ll see where the wind takes us!
