Milan, Italy

 As you may have seen, I decided to take a little trip to Milan which is well-known as a world center of fashion and design with my friend in crime - Eva.

We had never visited Milan before so we didn’t know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, city with a large global impact on trade, industry, music, sports, literature, art and mass media.

One morning we came up with an idea to visit Milan.

Since we have decided to travel alone, we planned and customized it for ourselves as well.

Every day we tried to visit as many landmarks as possible and take advantage of all the time we could.

We took pictures, had fun, but also learned something. Even though we were not able to figure out the maps so easily, in the end we managed to get all the informations we needed. A smile of a thousand dollars, opening all the doors.

The first thing we decided to visit was The Gallery of Vittorio Emanuele II, which with its glass - iron dome, beautiful mosaics and marble floors, in my opinion, is one of the world 's largest and most glamorous shopping centers.

We also recommend everyone, first to visit The Gallery of Vittorio Emanuele II. The Great Gallery of Vittorio Emanuele II, a covered passage connecting Piazza del Duomo and the square opposite the La Scala Theater.

As soon as you step out of the subway to Piazza del Duomo, you must be impressed with the view that stands in front of you which is the giant marble facade of Milan´s Cathedral.

As everyone in good old fashion knows, if  is not on Instagram, it didn´t even happen, and, of course, I could not let my followers down. All the time I was talking about Milan, one city - one love, and I fell in love. 

"The walk around Piazza del Duomo will explain to you its size, and if you want to look at how it looks inside, make sure that you are suitably dressed, covered head to toes, otherwise you will not be able to enter!"

And now a little bit about our accommodation; Hotel Da Vinci is located in the middle of a park of up to 8,000 square meters, near Milan. The hotel itself offers a restaurant and a private parking. Not far from the hotel there is the railway station Bruzzano, which includes direct lines to the city center.

The hotel has large, elegant and air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi access, which is really important in 21 st century, you know what I mean 😉  All units include a large bathroom with tiled mosaic tiles, flat screen TV and a mini bar from which we all slept, but pay fairly, water 2 € - nothing terrible.

The hotel offers extremely tasty food within an affordable price range and staff was really professional. The food was really really good, and what I liked the most was that there were all kinds of meals, meals for everyone. 

One of the reasons why we went to Milan was Eva's birthday. We decided to celebrate her birthday outside of Croatia, so we chose Milan.

Like every other birthday, this one could not be celebrated without a cake. We decided to blow out the candles in the toilet because we had a fire alarm in the room, Eva was saying we'd go to the dick if that went wrong. So, we celebrated her birthday in the toilet.

I told everyone that they should never send postcards, because no one can guarantee that they will arrive. And that's exactly what happened. I told Eva that it would be better to buy magnets because they are of higher value and last longer than postcards. We sent postcards on November 5, and they arrived after three months in Croatia, people forgot that we were in Milan. 

To some friends I bought souvenirs like magnets and plates, while others did not get theirs, because their presents were those postcard. Conclusion: Do not send postcards, buy magnets!

Milan is also known for its pastries that Eva and I could not resist. Since we don`t eat in the restaurants that often, Farage and McDonalds were the top destinations. Typical Balkan.

We´ve come to the one of the most interesting topics, and that is #milanstreetstyle I would say that the Italians have the style, but actually they do not. As can be seen from the enclosed, I told Eva that this pair was among one of the best dressed people in Milan. Simple and yet chic. Italian fashion is really special, there are those who look like a million dollars, there are those who would like to look like a million dollars, there are those who will never be the fashion conscious, and, there are those who just do not care how to dress. Interesting.

The city has its several popular tourist attractions such as the cathedral and square of Piazza del Duomo, Teatro alla Scala Theater, Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery, Castello Sforzesco Castle, Pinacoteca di Brera and Via Montenapoleone.

For the end I left the cathedral which is really special and worth looking at from every corner as well as from the top. The view that comes from the top of the cathedral is indeed worth and astonishing. Extract a few euros to enter the cathedral and climb to its top. The picture says more than words.
