After a shopping day and visit to the Balsamic Vinegar museum (yes, really!!) yesterday we took a trip to the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena before moving on to Milan.
This museum is dedicated to the work and life of Enzo Ferrari, creator of the famous marque.

Amazing how quick the fog came down but thankfully by the time we were ready to go out the fog had lifted. We decided to explore the town and walked along the wooden bridge covered in flowers and found a cafe called Heini which served a great breakfast of a milky muesli bread, cheese, ham and croissants.
