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.

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.

It’s on sale in Florence! There were many interesting small shops on the way from Piazza del Repubblica to Santa Maria Novella. And many stuffs for pasta! Better to buy pasta than pasta tools for me. 😀
And gelato is perfect to finish the day! So good!

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!

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!
