Milan, Italy | Travel Blog #4

Hello everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, but I’m really excited for today’s travel blog because it’s focused on one of my favorite cities ever.. Milan!

If you read my previous travel blogs from this trip (I’ll link them at the end of this post) you’ll know that we took a train from Nice, France to Italy and stayed in Milan for a couple of days before heading to Switzerland. Yup, we jammed a lot into this trip! But it was all worth it because I loved staying in all of these beautiful cities!

Milan was one of my favorites for two reasons:

  1. It was very exciting and lively, but at the same time it was very calm and quiet. Does that make sense? Basically you could walk through a very hectic and bustling street, turn a corner, and walk through a very peaceful area.
  2. It’s the fashion capital of the world – how could you not love it?! (I am, however, quite irritated that we were in Milan exactly the weekend after fashion week. Just my luck!)

The hotel we stayed in was a bit far from the city center, so we had to take a tram for about 5 minutes every morning. I didn’t mind this too much, but just a tip – BUY A TICKET! There is a small chance you will get away with going on the street tram without a ticket, and those who tried this were (not so kindly) escorted off the tram by the police.

The city center is basically what you would expect to see in a city like Milan. Some streets were packed with normal clothing stores, and the rest were designer stores that I was perfectly happy with looking at from a distance 😂

Of course, we went to the Cathedral and took some pictures. It was gorgeous and the pigeons seemed to like it as well. img_2172

It’s actually pretty interesting when you see focus on each individual person and what they’re doing as I took this. My personal favorite is the guy in the maroon shirt doing some type of a starfish pose (behind the other guy who’s chasing the pigeons.)

We also made a trip to the Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci. This was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I highly recommend if you’re going to visit Milan, especially since it is getting older and the colors are fading!

The rest of the time we spent visiting family and exploring the city; here are a few of my favorite photos!

This was the view from the Cathedral; inside the streets are all shops!

This was more of a residential area, so it was a lot more relaxed and quiet.

I’m almost positive there were fashion shows inside this building during fashion week!
