Milan, Italy

Published by Crazy Travel — 3 years ago

Milan is a wonderful and busy city in Italy. Milan is one of the world's fashion capitals. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, in the centre of town, is a beautiful, old shopping arcade. I must say that, even though clothes are expensive, you can find a wide variety of outfits, shoes, bags and accessories at a reasonable price in other clothes shops in Milan. There is no need to go to all the exclusive boutiques. Just visit small shops or shopping centres around the area. That will be more fun than limiting yourself to visiting the same kind of shops all the time. Every Saturday you can enjoy the flea market.

When we mention Milan it is hard to forget the Duomo, which is a stunning, Gothic cathedral. Besides that, you can visit the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. This refectory houses 'The Last Supper' by Leonardo da Vinci. There is also the Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia "Leonardo da Vinci" and more. But you should buy tickets to visit most of these places. In Milan, there are lots of museums, art galleries and other cultural sites. Sometimes you have the chance to visit them for free during the Settimana della Cultura ('Cultural Heritage Week'). This is an event celebrated across Italy in April/May.

If you are not interested in spending money on buying tickets to visit cultural sites, then you may want to go to some of the restaurants in Milan, which serve different types of food. They also offer meals at reasonable prices occasionally, and they deliver meals to the hotel you are staying or to your apartment. In the city centre, you can find Chinese, Japanese, Sri Lankan, Indian or Peruvian restaurants.

Travelling across Milan is not that difficult since the city has good bus, train and metro connections. However, to be honest, I really do not like to travel by metro nor by bus due to heavy traffic. If you are a tourist, I advise you to keep your GPS on all the time or take a map of the city.

To find accommodation in Milan is not difficult because there are thousands of choices in any way. You can find affordable B&B's, hotels and apartments. I like to go to Milan in summer since there are more entertaining, outdoor activities to do.

You can have a great nightlife in Milan, especially during the summer. I recommend you Navigli district and the bohemian Ticinese area, which are dotted with many restaurants and bars. You can also go for a lovely walk along the canal at night. The Colonne di San Lorenzo is another hangout, famous among young people, where they can drink, eat, make noise and have fun until the crack of the dawn.

Other events, such as live concerts, silent discos, exhibitions, antique markets, sports events, sleepless nights and flower fairs take place in summer. But there is even more: the Milano City Marathon (held every April), 'La Befana Benifica' (a motorcycle procession for charity led by La Befana, the Epiphany witch), the Carnevale Ambrosiano di Milano or Milan Carnival (it is usually celebrated mid-to-late February or early March), the Milan Fashion Week (the autumn/winter event is held in February/March and the spring/summer event is held in September/October) or the Great Opening Night at La Scala Opera House (it takes place in early December).

Throughout the year, Milan hosts different types of events from time to time. Therefore, you can enjoy your stay in Milan in any season. I guarantee that you can have quality time with your family and friends.
