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.

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.

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!
