Travel Adventures: Milan, Italy

One of my travel goals is to tour the whole of Europe and visiting Milan was a step towards achieving that dream

Although it was a work trip, I tried to find some time to tour the city as much as i could.

One of the things I loved most about visiting Milan were the people. I found them quite friendly, hospitable and warm. The language barrier was not a problem at all as the people I met either tried to patiently listen to my bad attempt at speaking Italian and try to decipher what I was trying to communicate to them or they just looked around for someone who could speak better English to help.

Most of my tour was around the city center and the main focus was The Duomo.

The Duomo is the fifth largest Christian church in the world and the sit of the Archbishop of Milan. Dedicated to the Nativity of St Mary, it took nearly six centuries to complete: construction began in 1386, and the final details were completed in 1965.

Watch out for the crowds especially if you are visiting over the weekend.

All the designer stores you can think of are all here at the city center just by the Duomo. What struck me the most here was the beautiful architectural designs of the buildings around the Duomo. They were breath taking.

 

I took a bus tour around the city but unfortunately, it rained cats and dogs on that day which deterred me from making stops at some interesting sites. I had to make do with taking pictures from the bus. This is my worst bus tour so far.

With plenty of restaurants to choose from at the city center, I definitely had to enjoy a meal with some nice Italian wine.


 

Milan is one place I feel I didn’t get enough of during my trip there. I still hope to visit Milan again but this time on holiday with enough time to spend touring the city.

Has anyone of you visited Milan or any other city in Italy? Share your experience with me!
