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.
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!
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.
Luckily some sections of the tribune for the Palio horse race had already been assembled, which made it easy for us to find a place to sit at the Piazza Del Campo and put together our sandwiches. There is nothing better than a Ciabatta with thinly sliced Prosciutto crudo!
Piazza Del Campo is the town square, shaped like a shell.
It was so hot that we were melting away. We had made plans with friends who stayed in a vineyard about 20 minutes from Siena.
The place was beyond beautiful!
We picked fresh lemons from the garden and made some lemonade.
Imagine having this view every day when you wake up! I could have easily stayed there and eat my weight in pasta.
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!
