I was home in London for two weeks (after four months of gallivanting) before it was time for my next trip.
Absolutely.With previous experience of the “travelling blues”, my best friend Nat whisked me away from the cold and rain to spend the weekend in beautiful Milan. To make the most of the sunshine (and so we wouldn’t feel so guilty about all our feasting!) we avoided the metro and spent our days exploring Milan by foot. Milan’s infamous square, the”Piazza del Duomo”, is a great place to wander. With parades of designer and high-street shops, bakeries and gelato bars, we had found our very happy place!
And after taking a peak inside and then climbing to the top of Milan’s iconic Cathedral (and enjoying the awesome view), we treated ourselves to a delicious meal at Fresco & Cimmino – recommended to us as cooking up the best pizza in town. Our food was so good we couldn’t resist a second visit just before our flight back to London!On day two we found the artsy Brera district. Made up of cobbled narrow streets, boutique shops and authentic Italian restaurants.(You know it’s authentic when there are red and white tablecloths, right?) Jumper: ASOS, Jeans: Zara
In the evenings we ventured to Navigli. Busy, buzzy and vibrant, whether you’re after a “posh” sit down dinner, drinks and live music or (as we were after a few gin and tonics) a slice of pizza bigger then your face for just a few euros, Navigli is the place to go. Note: If you want a proper dinner, it is definitely worth booking a table as everywhere was super busy. Milan, you were fabulous and I’m definitely coming back!
