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.
The weather was perfect in Assisi! We went to Assisi from Florence for one day trip. It took about 2 hours by train. After visiting the Basilica of San Francesco, we just strolled in the town. There were many cute shops and cafes. And Flower was everywhere in Assisi.
We entered a clothing shop, Margherita on Corso Mazzini by accident. OMG! I founded clothes of Italian brand Vivetta there. It was cheaper than in other shops. The owner is mother of designer Vivetta. I bought a signature finger nail shirt and a pink dress. So lucky!
We had a real italian lunch at Il Francescano where our Italian house owner recommended. Two thumbs up! It was really delicious. After having gelato at cute gelateria, we walked along the river Arno, accros the Ponte Vecchio and back to the Basilica Santa Croce again where our accommodation located. Florence is so beautiful!
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.
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!
MERCI! It’s must know French word when you travel in France. This Parisian concept store is created by founders of Bonpoint. They brought together the best of fashion, design, and household items in the Haut-Marais district. The red vintage car, Merci‘s mascot is parked at the courtyard. Can’t pass without taking pictures. 😀
I dropped by kid store, Bonton. There are many cute clothes and kids party stuffs. I bought some paper envelops and plates for picnic.
GRAZIE! It’s must know Italian word when you travel in Italy. It means “Thanks” like Merci. This is an italian restaurant near by Merci. They offer yummy rustic-style pizzas and delicious cocktails. The whole atmosphere is in dark. Even toilet paper is also in black. 😀 Booking is essential to get a table.
This boulevard Beaumaarchais will be full of “Thanks” shops and restaurant in many other languages, I guess.
Anyway, waiting a bus to move to Seine river. See you on Seine!
STRIPE! STRIPE! STRIPE! Yes, it’s Les Deux Plateux, better known as Les colonnes de Buren(Buren’s columns) in the courtyard of Palais-Royal. It was installed in 1986, but still looks new. Some tourists like me were taking pictures, some Parisians were having sandwiches and some people were reading on the columns. Especially, it’s perfect modern playground for children. And my mom’s OOTD was perfect match. 😀
We grabbed Espresso from the cutest small café Kitsuné in Palais-Royal. OMG! This tiny Espresso paper cup is so cute! Many Parisians were resting around the fountain. They looked relaxing and peaceful. I wanted take a rest for a while here, but there were not enough time for tourist like me. We had to move to next destination. See you on next post!
Hello! I had a Hello Cappuccino in Marais district. Yes, it was Sunday of course! It seems like all Parisians came to Marais. I couldn’t have a famous Falafel because of a looooong queue. So sad. It was difficult to find a free seat in cafes. And I found a Parisian couple was having lunch outside under the umbrella even though it was raining. C’est tres romantique!
