Siena

We drove to Siena for a day. On the way there we took a sneaky little detour to the Prada Space Outlet. It’s supposed to be the biggest Prada outlet. My boyfriend wasn’t that excited about it, though.

Next to the actual store is a very posh coffee place. I wasn’t sure if we were going to pay €20 for two coffees, as you never know with designer places. But I was pleasantly surprised that it was reasonably priced.  IMG_4104

IMG_4101 It was time to browse and shop. I had never seen such a vast collection of Prada goodies. And they carry Miu Miu and Car Shoe too!

Handbag paradise!

IMG_4098 I was a good girl and didn’t buy anything for myself, just a little present for a friend.

After Prada it was time for Siena.

By the time we arrived, we were starving. We went into the first supermarket we found in the city centre and got some ciabatta and prosciutto.

IMG_4125 The place was beyond beautiful!

We picked fresh lemons from the garden and made some lemonade.

For dinner we went to a local restaurant where I had the most amazing beef carpaccio with truffles. They weren’t stingy with the truffles. La dolce vita!
