On our last day in Florence Rochelle and I rushed to the Salvatore Ferragamo museum to see all the shoes they created for stars in the past.
The museum had an exhibit that paid homage to Marilyn Monroe which lasts til January 28, 2013. We got to see the clothes she wore and the shoes Ferragamo created for her. What really caught our interest were her letters and journal entries which showed how smart she was.
Photography wasn’t allowed so this was the only picture I was able to take. If you’re going to Florence before January 28, 2013 I suggest visiting this museum and you’ll be fascinated with Marilyn like we were.
Before going shopping at the outlet our driver brought us to small ticket office to buy our train tickets to Rome.
The line wasn’t long and our one way, restricted (no changes possible) to Rome’s Termini cost only €29 for a first class seat. Now I know why people didn’t use the machines.
Before buying your ticket make sure you know the names of the station you will ride from and the station you will arrive at. Each city has several train stations. Find out which station is nearest your hotel to save time and money.
It’s a good thing we already had our train tickets when we arrived at the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station. If you will buy your ticket at this station make sure you arrive with enough time to your desired departure. You can check train schedules at TrenItalia’s website.
I saw these displays of Café Zero all over Piazza Duomo and I was curious to what it tasted like.
It’s a frozen drink that has the consistency of a thick milk shake crossed with granita. It was just ok for me. It had some kind of thickener added to it.
