OMG! 463 narrow steps to climb to the Cupola! It was raining when we reached to the top. It was similar and different view from the top of the Bell Tower. And our outfits are similar and different also. 😀
We arrived in Florence at night. We were exhausted because we had to carry our super heavy baggages to third floor without lift. After a long sleep, we encountered the awesome view from our bedroom. We are in Florence!
We had italian spaghetti, pizza and Con Panna in Piazza della Repubblica.
After charging up our strength, we climbed up to the top of the bell tower. We looked on red roofs and the Cupola of the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore.
Buongiorno! Moved to Florence from Paris! I stayed for 3 weeks in Florence and had some one-day trips to Assisi, Bologna, Siena and Cinque Terre. This is a short road movie in Italy. I will update some pictures soon.
Last day in Paris! After packing my suitcase, I went to La Patisserie des Reves near my place. Awesome cakes were displayed like jewelry shop. I wanted to have a coffee with delicious cakes there, but it’s possible to only takeout during weekday. So I picked three cakes to share with my parent before going to airport.
The biggest Isabel Marant boutique on avenue Victor Hugo! The small garden is so good.
And I’m flying to Florence. I’ll update Italy trip pictures next week. See you in Florence!
Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain is 30 years old! Cartier inaugurated the Fondation Cartier near Versailles 30 years ago. Ten years later, the Fondation Cartier moved to glass and steel building by Jean Nouvel in Paris. Many artists were exhibited in this awesome space for 30 years. The Fondation Cartier celebrates its 30th anniversary with the exhibition Vivid Memories, accompanied by concerts, events and some of the most symbolic works of the Fondation Cartier collections. There were some works I already saw from the past exhibitions.
I liked paper lights by Issey Miyake in the garden. They were moving like accordions. So cute!
We went to Conran shop. A truck rushed into the shop like vegetable section in La Grande Epicerie de Paris. It seems like a trend in Paris. I wanted to buy many stuffs there, but no more money and space in my suitcase. After Conran shop, we shopped in Sevres-Babylone district. We passed Esag/Penninghen school where I studied for 1 year. On our way to Fondation Cartier, we passed apartment on rue Campagne-Premiere where I lived for 6 months with my cousin. It was built by architect Andre Arftvidson in 1911. This building did the transition between Art Nouveau, Art Deco and International style. I was bit proud at that time when some tourists were taking pictures my apartment. 😀
