Audrey

Hey guys, before going on with my trip in Brussels I want to tell you about what I did today.

I went to Rome with a dear friend of mine to see Audrey Hepburn’s exhibition.

We took the “Freccia Rossa” train to Roma Termini.

There we got a one ride ticket [1 euro for 75 minutes] and jumped on the A line to Battistini.

The stop you want to jump off at is Flaminio.

This is close to Piazza del Popolo.

You want to go straight to Via Ripetta and after a 10 minutes walk you will find Ara Pacis Museum on your right. [It’s a white building with huge windows].

Here is where you want to go to see the exhibition [it lasts till Dec 4th].

It contains images, videos and personal objects that recall the actress’s life in Rome.

It costs 10 euro [or 8 with reductions] and ,to me, it’s worth them, but not the whole trip.

I had huge expectations and I found it just ok…

First of all you cannot take photos [it’s pretty annoying].

It has tons and tons of photos of Audrey’s everyday life and some pieces of her amazing wardrobe such as a Valentino dress and many Givenchy ones, but the exhibition is kind of labyrinthic .

Here a Valentino's dress. [Via http://audreyinrome.tumblr.com/]

I had lunch in a nice Trattoria in Via Ripetta: Trattoria La Buca di Ripetta.

I had Penne all’arrabbiata. [Short pasta with tomato sauce and red chili peppers]

It was amazingly good!

Then I had a small chocolate pie with a melted hot chocolate heart.

This was brought with avanilla mousse and alomonds.

OUTSTANDING!
