Really nice bar to stop off and have a beer of two. The staff were so welcoming. Reasonable prices for Milan. Lots of locals so always a good sign.
Its the main attraction of Milan. Its actually breathtaking. We saw it every day and every night. So pretty to photograph. Everyone has the same idea and wants the same photograph so you may need to be patient with the torrent of tourists. I lost my mind getting hit with selfie sticks! It currently has some renovations occurring around the side and a hideous LED tv on the other. but the front view is everything you could want.
its a must to walk across the square simply to achieve your typical tourist snaps. There are street artists and performers which reminded me a little of Barcelona and Madrid. Its a hub for people to gather and the pigeons aren't as forthcoming as in Venice (thank god). Lots of restaurants here you can stop and people watch,
What an amazing shopping mall. I loved it and I didn't even buy anything here. Found the famous Bull with no balls and had a spin for luck. Sounds strange but when you see the people all gathered you'll want to have a go. Lots of cafes and fine dining establishments inside so everyone is catered for. Great Ferrari shop and you can't go wrong with Louis Vuitton. I still can't believe I didn't buy anything!!! Its majestic and beautiful inside but the giant Michael Kors advert outside got on my nerves.
The queue attracted me to this place. Why would so many people be queuing for fast food. So being curious I joined the queue. Apparently its famous. I had never heard of it. all I can say is WOW. the queue moves so fast and its well worth it. I sampled a ham and cheese panzerotti and it was the best thing I ate the entire holiday. Hard to describe without sounding gross but its sort of the texture of a sugared donut with a hot savoury filling. They had a menu with every flavour possible. Would go back to Milan just to do this again! Expect to pay about 2 euros for a panzerotti and 4 euros for a bottle of peroni
Beautiful monument in Duomo square. It reminds me of something you would see in London. Covered in pigeons. Lots of people sitting around it eating snacks they've bought locally. It photographs very well during the day. Quieter at night.
This hotel is a 3 star in my opinion. What makes it an excellent choice is its location. Its about 3 minutes on foot to Duomo which is a fabulous place to be based. Its a little tired and dated but its functional and actually quite comfortable, They offer free wifi and a complimentary breakfast. This breakfast is really good. A mixture of hot and cold buffet items. Kept us full till dinner time. Its also pet friendly. with no fee for small animals. It has a car park within a 1 minute walk away which i think was 25 euros a day. Very reasonable. Staff were very nice. It was very clean. So although 3 star may not be good enough for some, it certainly was for us on this trip.
I really wanted to try a cocktail in the Aperol bar but it was closed for a refurb. So I went here instead. Just inside the shopping mall we sat and people watched for hours. They gave us tasty little pastries to eat with our wine. I sampled a Campari cocktail which was the most disgusting thing I have ever tried in my life. Too bitter and just vile. Waiter felt sorry for me and knocked it off the bill. Considering ti should have been 23 euros I was impressed.
Super place to stop off and enjoy some food. Staff were so helpful and friendly. They changed a few items for me without issue to accommodate my fussy palette. Great views across the square to see Duomo. Reasonably priced too for where you are and what you can see,
Not really a history buff and if I am honest I didn't go looking for this. Nor did I realise who it was until I was right on top of it and read the plaque. Its nice to go and see. No pigeons so I was happy! Photographs well with some grand buildings making for a good backdrop.
