we stayed at an apartment which we rented via airbnb. it's close to navigli, which is where the channels and lots of super cute little restaurants are. we first though that apperitivo is just what it says: appetizer, but oh my, that was an actual course!! during our short stay we ate way too much pasta, pizza and oh don't get me even started with all the delicious gelato! if it was for me, i would have lived on ice cream those whole two days!
anyways, duomo wasn't far either. it only took us a 15 minute walk, well if you cut out the time we spent inside all those store which we passed ;) if you happen to be in milan you definitely need to see the duomo from the inside. it's very impressiv and got me goosebumps - the atmosphere's so powerful! we went the second (not so hot) day, since we weren't dress appropriate to enter. also the galleria vittorio emanuelle II is a must see and right next to the duomo.
since is was pretty hot (over 27°C) the first day we decided to...guess what..have a gelato!! haha! and have a rest at the parco sempione. on saturday we went to brera, the old town of milan where we enjoyed a lighter meal which means: melon with parma ham & caprese. we also went shopping but i was well-behaved and only went for two things. pretty damn good, huh?! ;) i therefore took lots of picutres which i hope you're going to enjoy... arrivederci!
