Finally I get to show you some of my Milan impressions, where I’ve caught some of the Dolce vita during late March, shortly before Easter. We had booked an accommodation on Airbnb because the hotels in the city centre, especially during the holidays, were simply overcrowded and overpriced. The apartment was super nice and and lovely furnished, clean and with the perfect roof terrace with a view all over the city centra aka the skyscrapers. Getting around the city is easiest via public transportation (underground and tram, also busses). A 24h-ticket cost about 4.50€ which is really cheap compared to other big European cities.
What is worthwhile here in any case are in my opinion:
- Brera and Garibaldi – Lovely small neighbourhoods with a lot of small shops, lovely backyards and cute restaurants.
- Navigli with the channels – Milan’s small venice with art galleries, vintage shops and a lot of spacer to relax and have an Aperitivo
- The many museums (especially the Pinacoteca, Poldi-Pezzoli and possibly also the museums in the Castello, depending on da Vinci’s Last Supper). At the Museo delle culture del mondo there is currently a Frida Kahlo exhibition, but I don’t know how long it lasts, but such an opportunity doesn’t come so often!
- In Milan you can also perfectly shop in the many vintage and second hand shops (sometimes even kiloware)
- Porta Nuova/Bosco Verticale with its green twin towers
- What I wouldn’t miss either is the “Happy Hour” or so-called Aperitivo here, the idea is that you pay a little more for a big cocktail/long drink (usually 0,5l 😄) and you can eat as much as you like from the cold buffet! Since the food here is just so good everywhere, it is just totally worth it and almost every restaurant offers something like this, mostly between 5/18-20/21 pm.
