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.
