Piggy’s Museum Series- Part One+ A Perfect Lunch
Hubby was having a man flu during our stay in Florence and he decided to stay holed up in the hotel. Sigh! As we bought a 50 Euro Firenze (Florence) pass each I had to go to all the museums by myself to get our value for money god dammit!
So I had to wake up super early in the morning to hike up to the lookout and visit some of the museums nearby. But first, I saw the fake David perched on the lookout. Yup, he is kinda hawt and a bit green looking… definitely not as big 😉 as the real one, which I would see soon enough.
Next I went to Palazzo Pitti with 4 museums: Silver museum, costume museum, Gallery of Modern Arts and Royal Apartments which is super grand. Too bad I am not allowed to take photos in most of the museums, because there are a lot of interesting things in the costume and silver museum, definitely worth a visit.
I also quickly checked out the San Lorenzo market in Florence- there are just SO much food in there. I quickly bought some truffle oil and kept going.
By the time I ventured out, it was already almost 3pm! I was a little bit light headed by then and think I had a bit of a heat stroke 😦 I went to a cafe nearby, although sadly I tried and tried but couldn’t find the cafe’s name. On the board it only said “Un Caffe” and it’s on Via Cesare Battisti 😦
Mr Ben has been raving on and on about Shakeretto, so I thought it’s a great time to try one whilst my energy is flagging and the weather was so hot. It was really good and it’s probably one of the best shakeretto I had in the whole trip. Awesome!
Off I went on my next set of museums!
