Happy Tuesday beautiful people! It’s my last little bit of Italy on the blog today (for now) and I am quite sad that my Italian photo diaries are coming to an end! 🙁 I’ve really loved sharing my trip with you guys, and Italy is definitely a place I would go back to. Especially Milan!
Milan was my favourite city on our trip, and anyone I’ve said that to has been surprised. On our last day we took the train from Venice back to Milan (it takes about 3 hours) and from the moment I stepped out of the Milano Centrale station I knew it was my kind of city!
The reason as to why I liked Milan so much was simple for me to explain- I felt like it had the perfect mix of history and the new age. The city is filled with history but it also has a touch of the modern architecture and vibe. The Piazza del Duomo which is one of the oldest squares in Italy is also home to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II which in turn holds some of the best shops in the world. Prada, Louis Vuitton, Versace, you name it- they have it. I loved how the mix of something that has been around for centuries came together with something so recent and new. That’s why Milan stole my heart- it had the culture to satisfy my knowledge and the shops to satisfy my credit card 😉
Because we didn’t have as much time in Milan as we wanted, we focused on mainly visiting the Duomo Cathedral and walking around the city a little bit. The Milan subway was incredibly easy to navigate(compared to Moscow and Paris).The stunning Milan Cathedral was built in a gothic style and is dedicated to St Mary of the Nativity and it took over 6 centuries to build! I mean I could see why, the delicate touches on it are amazing! You can stare and admire it for hours and it’s an absolute must-see if you are going to Milan.
Milan was definitely the coldest city in Italy that we visited, so for the day trip there I made sure that my outfit was nice and cozy. I got this wrap back in Paris last year but haven’t had a chance to showcase it on the blog and I really love how it looks paired with a felt hat. Hats are very much my thing in winter, so you have been warned 😉 I have also been dying for a pair of thigh high boots for winter, and I spotted these at Cotton On which go perfectly with a pair of jeans or legging for winter. I absolutely loved exploring this city and I am definitely keen to go back to Milan and see even more of it! 🙂
