While staying in Pisa, we made several day trips to nearby Lucca. The Etruscan/Roman town still has its impressive Renaissance walls.
The walls were never used for defence and now serve as a popular raised walk around the perimeter of the old town.
We noticed these ruins right beside the city wall in Pisa. They look similar to ancient ruins in Rome, and are called Nero’s Baths. But apparently they aren’t actually Roman ruins at all – that’s just a local legend.
Still plenty of the old city wall in Pisa, Italy. You can walk along the wall – on the battlements in some places, and beside the wall in others – for an unusual view of the famous town.
Also noticed these striking artworks by street artist Bigghed while we were in Pisa recently.
Love was in the air during our visit to Pisa.
Some successful, some less so.
Here are some more artworks by street artist Blub, spotted during our recent visit to Pisa.
Noticed more of them in other nearby towns as well.

These quirky portraits are by the anonymous Florentine artist known as Blub. They feature familiar faces, but all wearing swim goggles.
