MILAN TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 3

Ciao everybody,
this was our last day in Milan and tomorrow we are leaving for Venice. This morning we visited Castello Sforzesco.

 

We discovered the different parts of the castle and took many photos. 

Next to it is Simplonpark this is a beautiful park. So we walked around and in the little lake we saw some turtles. 

On the other side of the park is the Arco della Pace. 

This is a beautiful place to take photos. Afterwards we walked to Porta Ticinese and along the canal. 

This is such a pretty place and it was beautiful to walk around. Today there was a flea market so we went to some stands as well. Following we visited a café and had delicious homemade ice cream.

 

After dinner in the apartment we went back to the city centre. So we visited the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the dome by night. This is a great time to take photos without many people in the background. 

Today we had a beautiful day and I am looking forward to Venice.

MILAN TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 2

Ciao everybody,
today was a beautiful sunny day in Milan. In the morning we walked along Via Brera. There are some nice shops and restaurants. Afterwards we walked to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and cathedral. 

In this area are many shops so we visited some. Yesterday we had delicious panzerotti at Luini so we went to the bakery again. In the afternoon we visited the dome but we had to wait for over one hour because of the long queue. The dome is so beautiful and huge. 

Especially the windows inside are so pretty. With the ticket for 3€ you can visit the cathedral, Duomo Museum and San Gottardo in Corte Church. So our next stop was the museum. Following was the S. Gottardo chrch. 

This church is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. The colours are so pretty. 

If you visit the dome in Milan I totally recommend to you to visit this church as well. Afterwards we walked around in the neighborhod. Back in the apartment we cooked dinner and watched a movie.

MILAN TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 1

Ciao everybody,
yesterday we took the train from Paris to Milan. The ride was over 7 hours long so we just went to the apartment and to a supermarket. We have never been in Milan before but we got great tips from a friend of mine. Today we walked to the city center. First of all we walked through the famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

 

It is even more beautiful in real life. There are many luxury shops and some restaurants. 

Then we arrived at the Duomo di Milano. The dome is so beautiful and huge. 

We started to take photos but unfortunately it started to rain. Then we wanted to visit the dome however it was closed because tomorrow the pope comes to Milan. So we visited the rooftop terrace of La Rinascente. 

The restaurants on the 7th floor of the department store are next to the dome, consequently the view is great. 

Afterwards we visited the nearby fast food bakery Luini. The line in front of the bakery was so long but it is totally worth it to wait. Famous are the salty and sweet panzerotti. I chose the baked panzerotti with mozzarella and tomatoes and the sweet one with chocolate and strawberries. They are so delicious however I preferred the salted one. In the afternoon we went shopping along Via Torino and Corso di Porta Ticinese. There we found some beautiful unique pieces. We had a nice evening in the apartment and cooked pasta with pesto.
