While I wish I could say my time in Milan was totally enjoyable, I have to say the only thing I really loved was the food. I learned a very important lesson about traveling during my stay in Milan: always research public transit systems ahead of using them! Long story short: I received a fine on the tram on my second day because I didn’t validate my tram ticket. (No one else did either!) All my pleading and begging got me nowhere! I even showed them my Trenitalia ticket from Verona to prove I was really just an ignorant tourist and not trying to rip off the system. The man wrote down all the information on my ID anyway and now I guess I am “wanted” by the Italian police because I refused to pay the 35 euro fine on the spot.In any case, should I return to Milan, I found a ton of great restaurants to revisit!
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II:
A beautiful place to walk through, even if you don’t plan to buy anything! ;)
Milan has its own canals which you can walk along! I visited the Navigli Lombardi along Via Ripa di Porta Ticinese which was lined with cafés, restaurants and shops!
Palazzo Della Banca Comerciale Italiana:
I thought this square was pretty as I passed it on my way to the Duomo.
You must visit the Duomo di Milano, even if you don’t go inside because I can tell you it’s even more beautiful in person than in photos!
