- Perfect weekend break city
If you have been looking for the most perfect city to take a break, then look no further. Milan is a cosmopolitan paradise. The atmosphere in this beautiful city is wonderful. It is so full of energy and so relaxed at the same time. There are so many things for you to do based upon your personal preferences or even just your mood. Milan has everything you could wish for in a city. Italy is a fantastic country, and I could not recommend visiting it enough. To top it all off, there are many low cost airlines that fly to Milan. So what are you waiting for?
If you are a food lover, then Milan is for you. Italian food is world famous, but there is no better than authentic thing. There are many great restaurants with the most perfect surroundings. Milan really is food heaven. The city covers people on all budgets with a wide range of restaurants. You really do not need to spend a lot in order to eat well in Milan.
If you would like to have a few cocktails, you can also have Aperitivo, which is a buffet of food laid out for customers. There are many different bars and clubs in Milan, including an open top bar with dancers and a DJ. Milan has a selection of everything, so whatever you feel like doing, you can. It is most definitely a city that caters to all.
Cafes are wonderful for breakfast especially, with a wide selection of pastries. If you are a coffee fan, you will be sure to find the best coffee in Milan. Personally I find them the most relaxing place to go to in the morning. There is nothing better.
- Go shopping
As it is a fashion capital, it may be rude not to. Even if you do not want to buy anything, the shops are definitely worth a visit. They have the most beautiful designer and high street shops near the Duomo. This city is enriched in beauty and the fashion industry is one of the key attractions for many people.
- The Duomo
This is the most iconic building of Milan. There lines are definitely worth the wait. The best way to see the Duomo and Milan is to climb the Duomo. This is such an incredible experience and it is definitely something that you should consider doing. It is also the best way to get amazing photographs of the city, and of the Duomo itself. I would recommend going earlier in the day.
There are many magnificent museums in Milan that you may not get the chance to see them all. Therefore it is best to have a look online before you go to know what you would like to see the most. There are many that cater to art and to history. Like everything else, Milan caters to many different interests.
- The castle
The caste is beautiful. Often they have bands or orchestras playing in the centre. It is a good opportunity to enjoy the historic side of the city. There always seems to be something going on here.
- The park
You could easily spend a whole day here. You can walk it, or rent and ride a bike around it. This huge, beautiful park has so much to see. There are extremely tranquil parts to it, and more busy parts. It depends entirely on what day you intend to visit it. There is also a pond with turtles!
Milan has some of the most beautiful buildings. Make sure you look up when you are walking through the streets. The city has a wonderful history and it is intertwined with the incredible architecture. You could very easily spend a whole day simply walking around and never grow bored. Milan is also the home to some of the most beautiful churches, also.
