Back in October, My husband, John and I went on a vacay to Italy. We went to Rome back in 2012, and this year we went to Milan, Venice and Lake Como. I will say this, I loved every European country I’ve visited so far. However, there is nothing quite like Italy. The people, the food, the ambiance, the history I LOVE IT ALL!!
So Milan was incredible! Like seriously I would live there no problem! It was modern but still immersed in history.
What to do:
We were only in Milan for two days, and from there we went on a day trip to Lake Como then Venice.
So we got to Milan at 9 am so it was plenty of time to check into the hotel, change and explore the city. We stayed at the NH collection hotel which was literally walking distance to the Duomo. The Duomo is absolutely breathtaking! I was so awestruck to finally see this church. I would make my husband stop everytime we passed it just to take another picture of it.
(see what I mean) 😉
We visited the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
La Scala Opera
Castello di Sforzesco
Arco Della Pace
Via Monte Napoleone
We, of course, went shopping! Lots of shopping.
And we ate! We ate a lot!!!
*you guys I have a problem, am I the only one that eats so much on Vacay? Like I just want to get all the flavors from the city. So I am always eating lol. Luckily were walking around all day and I can burn calories
Places to eat:
Rizzocomeacasa Rizzo Come a Casa
Quick midday bite/snack/ or just want to sit lol
Bottega Siculo Milano
Salumeria Sapori Solari-If you know me you know I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE (xs 10000) my Italian deli meats and prosciutto! I know they aren’t healthy but honestly, they are my favorite thing to eat. MUST GO BACK!
What to wear:
Fashion wise I tried to stay classic, comfortable, and chic. For me, I found that if I wear skirts and dresses paired with flats, I always look dressed up and I’m always comfy
Ahhh I want to go back! Maybe someday!
What’s your favorite place to go? Let me know below!
