Marilyn’s crocodile shoes. A Gucci cadillac. Cavalli’s chocolate.
Would you like to see Florence the fashion way? If you’ve seen the main tourist attractions already, why not focusing on a mini fashion tour?
From Marilyn Monroe’s shoes to a Gucci designed Cadillac, or a Roberto Cavalli coffee on an animal-printed towel…Florence offers all this; and in a day.
I visited these three fashion spots and loved them: the Gucci Museum, the Caffe’ Giacosa by Cavalli, and the Ferragamo Museum. To do that, I browsed through the stunning city centre so also added some window-shopping and some new and old sculptures in Piazza della Signoria.
A Stunning View
To finish off the day, I went to Piazzale Michelangelo, the best view in Florence and its most famous panoramic spot. I had never been there before! To this sin, I added a slip of the tongue, and called it the wrong way when I asked for directions. I apologise to the whole Florentine people for my ignorance, but I think I made up for it by completely falling in love with the place! What an incredible view and atmosphere….do have a walk up there if you want to be mesmerised forever.
