A LOCAL’S GUIDE TO MILANO

thetawnyfoxmilano

Time passes by quickly when you’re having fun! Sorry for keeping you waiting, Milano turned out to be more bussy than expected. So if you read the M(AR)CH TO COME post, you already know that I went to Milano to follow a course at the Politech University. The nice thing was that during this week – apart from following lessons – we went on two trips, one to the centre of Milano, one to Como. The weird thing was that at first my expectations of the city were not met at all, but after a few days it started to grow on me. This was partly because of our fellow Italian student/guide who showed us all the places to be at. We rented a room in a beautiful appartement using airbnb, our host – Valentina – was so lovely! She made us breakfast everyday and made us addicted to Italian coffee. I ended up buying a mokka express from Bialetti, it’s that good. The last day we went shopping, so you can expect a Milano haul following very soon! Although I didn’t count on it, I made some really great friends and I miss them so much already, but hopefully I will get to see them again very soon – oh yes, this means more traveling for sure!

But the most important part of the trip is – obviously – the places we went to AFTER classes. If you ever visit Milano, please make sure to stop by the following spots, you won’t regret it!
