TRAVEL GUIDE: MILAN, ITALY
On one of our days in Italy we made a day trip to Milan. Here we parked just outside the city limits and took the train to the Duomo di Milano. The cathedral is an absolute highlight of Milan – we highly recommend a visit here!
Not far from the Duomo is the Galleria vittorio emanuele ii. This shopping arcade is not only full of the words most prestigious brands, it’s also beautiful to look at.
Other places worth seeing in Milan are the Piazza dei Mercanti, the Palazzo della Ragione and the Teatro alla Scala.
We also recommend seeing the other side of Milan and walking to the Arco della pace.
Equally worth a visit is the Piazza del Cannone and the Castello sforzesco.
Lastly, we walked to the Naviglio Grande, a river in Milan, which is surrounded by small caffees and restaurants. This area is especially busy in the evening and invites you to celebrate.
