Though I have been posting all week about my trip to Milan for fashion week, I haven’t posted anything on what I actually did in the city or suggestions for future trips. From Rome I took a quick three and a half hour high-speed train to Milan. It was perfect fr getting some work done and long enough to get you excited for your upcoming stay in the Fashion Capital of the World.
The food was amazing! One of my favorite places that I went to was the Gucci cafe. No matter how you walk in, you will walk out with a smile on your face and an extra kick in your step after having tea here. There are great aperitivo and drinks at Terrazza Aperol above the Piazza del Duomo. You can either sit outside on the balcony for an incredible view of Il Duomo di Milano, or enjoy the indoor modern vibes of the restaurant/ bar. Another restaurant I would highly recommend is Pizza AM. I would honestly consider it the best pizza I have had in Italy… and that means a lot. There is also a great nightlife scene throughout the city if you are looking for a fun weekend out.
Though I spent lots of time shopping and going around to the shows for fashion week, there are plenty of other things to do in Milan…
- Visit Il Duomo di Milano.
- Take a stroll through Piazza del Duomo.
- Visit Chiesa de Santa Maria delle Grazie – This is the church where Davinci’s Last Supper is located.
- Visit Teatro alla Scala – This is the Grand opera house in Milan.
- And who knows? You might even find some of the most famous designers’ plaques!
Otherwise for those who would like to shop till you drop, you will have plenty of options to choose from. From the top of the line and latest Versace styles in the Piazza del Duomo to a more affordable selection at shops such as Zara, Milan is welcoming to all the fashionistas of the world.
Most people say that you can visit Milan in a day because there aren’t many historic places and things to do. And though this is true to an extent, I found Milan to be a place that I would not only want to visit, but live. The vibes are so fun and inspiring. It’s like an Italian version of New York city. Like New York, it’s not a place for everyone, I just happened to love everything about it. And no matter what you do in Milan you’ll come back feeling a little more Gucci.
