2 days in Milano, Italy

Milano (Milan) is the fashion capital of the world and you definitely see it walking around. This was one of my favorite cities in Italy that I wasn't expecting to love so much. Milan not only has great architecture and history, but it has style and is a little "weird" which I very much enjoyed.

*Pro Tip: APERITIVO is Italy’s Happy Hour 5-6PM

What to do

  • Duomo di Milano

  • Vittorio Emanuele II (Galleria)

  • Brera

  • Terrazza Aperol (best view of Duomo di Milano)

  • Parc Sempione (relax from the city)

  • Arco Della Pace - The Arc of Peace

  • Canals in Navigli

  • Milano Centrale

  • Bosco Verticale (Apartment Building - Crazy Architecture)

Where to stay

I stayed in an AirBnB in the Navigli neighborhood and would highly suggest doing the same! There is such a vibrance and deep sense of culture in this neighborhood, it is fun to walk around, look at the shops and find a delicious restaurant.
