Walk through Milan
| October 26, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! Since most countries are already back on holiday time, here's a little trip advice from me to you: Milan, city of fashion. Not only do they have the most beautiful shopping streets and galleries, but there are various sights to see - best known the Duomo di Milano (first picture). Let's start the tour!

Duomo di Milano

View from high above down the Corso Vittorio Emanuele (one of the main shopping streets). 

Take the time and walk up or take the lift up to the roof of the Duomo. You'll have an incredible view around e.g. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza del Duomo, 
La Rinascente... 

... even when it's raining.

Teatro Alla Scala

When you walk right through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, you'll reach the Teatro Alla Scala on the left hand side. The visitor ticket includes a museum and the look into the theater itself. Here's the visual sneak peek for you.

They've been restoring the theater when we were there. 

Santa Maria delle Grazie

Next stop: Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie - very well-known church because of the "Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci. To preserve the fresco as well as possible, photography wasn't allowed. But you can have a look at the out- and inside of the church itself. It's really worth a visit!

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

I know you're waiting for it - and you'll get it: the Galleria. It's a real feast for the eyes. Whether you watch the shop windows of Italian luxury labels or you spend some time in one of those inviting cafés. In any case a must when in Milan.

Milan at night

And I really recommend you to take a walk through the centre at night. When all the sights are lit up...

Gelato tip

What we've discovered while our evening stroll as well: the best gelateria of Milan! Go and try it!

Il Massimo Del Gelato
Via Lodovico Castelvetro, 18
20154 Milano

Where to stay

Last but not least a tip where to spend your trip. We've stayed at the Acca Palace hotel, the rooms were very spacious, everything clean and nice. The breakfast was very good, versatile and yummy.

Hope you liked the little tour guide through Milan! Have you ever been there? What did you enjoy the most? Let me know down in the comment section. :)
