  • Milan travel guide

    As we are coming close to the end of this competition, and with that also to the end of my regular article posting here, I wanted to do a sort of “recap article” about what to visit in Milan if you are planning to come and visit this city for a few days. In the...

  • Trip to Trieste

    On our way back to Milan from Slovenia, you made a stop in the city of Trieste, which is located in Italy, but also very close to the border with Slovenia. In fact, we left from Koper, Slovenia by bus and less than 30 minutes after the departure, we arrived in Trieste....

  • Trip to Rome

    This was inevitable during my year as an Erasmus in Milan: I had to go and visit Rome, Roma in Italian, the capital city of Italy. I was so excited to go because Rome was the other city (apart from Milan) where I could choose to go to spend my Erasmus year, so I really...

  • Panna cotta recipe

    Another recipe today! This one is about another Italian dessert that I really like. If I go to an Italian restaurant, the chances are really high that for my dessert, I will order a panna cotta. I love it because it is very refreshing and light to eat after a meal....

    Source Another recipe for you today, and it's another Italian dessert! I wanted to share another one, which I find really light and is great and refreshing to eat after a big meal. I am talking about the ricotta cheesecake! I’m pretty sure you have all heard about...

  • Vegetarian lasagna recipe

    I know all of us here (and most likely everybody on Earth) loves lasagna. This is without any doubt one of my favorite things to eat, especially when my mum made them. But on this blog today, I am going to give you the recipe to make lasagna yourself. And not only...

  • Tiramisu recipe

    Today’s recipe will be about another very famous and popular Italian dessert: the tiramisu! I am pretty sure that every single one of you has already tried it at least one. This cake is very convenient, especially when you have a lot of guests. It might not seem like...

  • Mushroom risotto recipe

    Another day, another recipe! Today, I would like to tell you about one of my favorite Italian dish (because Italy doesn't only have desserts but also delicious dishes). And it’s not even pizza or pasta! I am talking about the risotto. If some of you don’t know about...

  • Recipe Panettone

    Another recipe that I wanted to share on this blog is the recipe of a very typical cake from Milan. Milanese people usually eat it for Christmas, that’s why it’s also recognized as the “traditional Italian Christmas bread”, so even though I am a little late for...

  • Cantuccini recipe

    I realized the other day that I am doing an Erasmus in Italy, a country with great food, yet I have never shared any recipe on here. Today is the day I fix this mistake and share with you the recipe of some Italian biscuits that I like very much: the Cantuccini. I like...

  • Palazzo Brera

    The Palazzo Brera is another one of the many places in Milan where you can see art under many forms. The Palazzo Brera is located in the Brera neighborhood (which makes sense, right?). Inside, you can find cultural institutions, like the Brera Library, the Astronomic...

  • East Market Milano

    Today, a rainy and lazy Sunday, I went to one of the East Market Milano event. This is actually a flea market, taking place in a warehouse in Milan. This event is quite popular here among the young people and I thought about going before but I couldn't, and today I...

  • Coffee shops in Milan

    Since coffee is so popular in Italy, you can basically find it almost anywhere in Milan: bar, restaurants, relaxing coffee shops etc. offer it at a very cheap price (some types of coffee cost less than €1 in these places, so yeah indeed very cheap). But if, like me,...

  • Visit to the Pirelli HangarBicocca

    Today I went to visit another museum in Milan (well on the border of Milan really, but it’s still accessible to the red metro line). It’s called the Pirelli HangarBicocca. Some of my friends went there and from the pictures that I saw it looked like it was another...

  • Day-trip to Bologna

    Another week, another trip! This time we went to explore the city of Bologna, which was on my list of Italian cities to visit this semester, and now it’s done! From Milan, getting to Bologna takes only about 2 hours and a half, and the price is around €20 (by bus)....

  • Milan under snow

    It’s been quite cold in Milan for the past few months, and more specifically the last couple weeks, and 2 days ago what we were kind of all expecting (since it was happening in all the rest of Italy, even in the South) happened: the snow came to Milan. Some of us...

  • Day-trip to Verona

    Verona was one of the cities that was at the top of my list of places to go for this semester. So many friends of mine from university were going there and telling me about how beautiful it is, so I wanted to go and see it for myself. This city really did not disappoint...

  • Palazzo Lombardia

    The last few days have been quite busy, but today I finally took the time to go out again and visit new things in Milan. I went to a spot that I found out about only a couple weeks ago and that I immediately wanted to go to: the Belvedere di Palazzo Lombardia, a. k. a a...

  • Best times to visit the Duomo

    The Duomo (which would be translated into Cathedral) is definitely the main landmark and the most popular monument in Milan. Whether you come here as a tourist or for your Erasmus, it’s probably the first thing that you will go to see, just like everybody else. As...

  • Trips to other Italian cities, departing from Milan

    Not only is Milan famous in the whole world for fashion, it’s also known in Europe to be an important hub when it comes to travelling. It’s located quite in the middle of Europe, so it makes it very easy to access other Italian cities and European countries from...
