We are feeling the Italian love for this installment of Escape. Maybe it’s the allure of the coffee? Well, it certainly can’t hurt! Of course, it’s also the architecture, the fashion, the history and so much more.
First things first. Let’s get you acquainted with Milano…
Now for the specifics! And, our tour guides are going to be Alexandra Pereira, blogger behind Lovely Pepa, Francesco Innocenti and Andrea Tamburrini.
Be sure to start your day out right with breakfast and a cappuccino!
Dine at the Above: 22 Milano.
Then, let the adventure in the city begin! Starting at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is said to be one of, if not, the oldest shopping mall in the world.
“Be sure to follow tradition and spin your heels once or twice on the more ‘delicate’ parts of the bull beneath your feet in the northern apse; the Milanese believe it brings good luck.” – Fodors
Duomo di Milano, which dates back to 1387.
Be sure to get a ticket to the terraces!
Walking, trains and bikes are always our preferred method of transportation. Although, sometimes it’s nice to simply sit back and soak in the scenery, especially on a rainy day…
When it’s time for lunch, why not try the Upcycle Milano Bike Cafè…
If your schedule allows, a trip to Frida’s Italian Flower Stores could make for a nice break in your day!
There is always the Corso Como neighborhood to explore. Below is the Porta Volta, the gate to the area…
Then, you can check out Eataly, do some shopping, some more eating and so much more!
Just be sure you are outside to try and catch a Milano sunset…
