It’s been a while since I posted the last post. I was focused on Instagram for a while. 😀 I have many travel pics to post. I’ll try to put them asap. (Follow me on instagram @this_is_duru)
We went to Boboli garden in Palazzo Pitti. The garden was exhibiting some sculptures by Italian sculptor Giuseppe Penone.

We had a coffee time with delicious cakes on rooftop cafe in Rinascente department store. The view from this cafe was awesome. You can see 360 degree view of Florence. The Duomo was just in front of us.

After visiting Siena Cathedral and Piazza del Campo, We just strolled through quiet streets. Found some beautiful houses and ate Panforte, traditional dessert in Siena. We met street art and enjoyed music from street musicians. And we hurried to train station to not to miss the last train. Arrivederci Siena!

Piazza del Campo! It’s the public square in Siena. This square is special because it’s on a slight slope. Palio di Siena, a horse race is held twice each year around the edges of this square.
We had pici pasta, local special food as a lunch in Piazza del Campo. This pasta is thick like fat spaghetti. It’s very fun to chew it.

We went to Siena for one day. It took about 2 hours and half by train from Florence. At first, we visited Siena Cathedral. They offered a white cover-up to cover my shoulder. OMG! It’s perfect for my dress. I felt like an angel. lol

MAMbo! MAMbo! It’s such a cute name! We went to MAMbo, Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna. There was American artist, Nick Van Woert exhibition. It presents Van Nick’s 33 works. It was very first time to see his works. So as soon as I saw his works, I thought this was exhibition from many artists. Because it presents a variety of his works. I was so ridiculous!
There is Italian painter, Giorgio Morandi Museum in MAMbo. He is famous for still life. They have his significant works. It’s good to visit there. It’s not allowed to take a picture. So I have nothing to show you.

After visiting MAMbo(Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna), we had aperitif time at MAMBO. The buffet is for free, if you pay for a drink. I had a spritz(wine-based cocktail) and my mom ordered a water. So she paid only 1 euro for water and buffet. 😀 They offered cold pasta, salad, cous cous… It seems like every stylish Bolognese come to have aperitif at MAMbo.
