If you're still lurking, here they are, pics from/of the Pisa apartment (sorry, i know i'm about 7 months later than promised). I used to have one from which you could see the leaning tower too, but i think it ended up in one of my sibling's school projects or something.
This is the apartment (taken with my back towards the leaning tower).
View from the balcony of the apartment. The leaning tower is just out of the frame to the left.
The great rose garden our landlords kept in their courtyard.
