Beautiful Italy – part 1

It’s nice to realize how pleasant is visiting, discovering and admiring my country. I’m Italian and I have a lot of chances to go sightseeing around Italy. I’m going to write three blogposts about 3 Italian cities that I visited at Easter and today’s destination is..Milan!

I love going there more times a year, I usually go shopping and sightseeing at Christmas, Easter and on Summer holidays. This time I visited it with my friends and we had so much fun together. The journey took us about 45 minutes and we caught a train and the tube to reach it..it’s pretty near our city. We obviously stopped by Duomo Cathedral, Milan’s symbol and we took a lot of pictures. Even though we’ve seen it a bunch of times, we don’t get bored of it! Recently some cute palms have been put in front of the cathedral and it’s fun to think of visiting a seaside town. Most famous shops are along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, so we always walk down it several times. It’s often very crowded and there are buskers and mini shows. There you can visit the Rinascente: a huge store where you can find anything. After several escalators, on the top floor there is a restaurant and a cool view. Also at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele there are some shops, but big brands ones. The galleria is one of the world’s oldest shopping malls and has a lovely iron-and glass-roof. The largest park in the central area of Milan is Sempione park and it’s very lovely especially to picnic. Then it’s worth visiting Porta nuova business district that includes modern high rise buildings, a large park and an ice skating rink in winter!

In the afternoon we went to Arnold Coffee that it’s very similar to Starbucks and we had iced coffee with whip cream and a raspberry cheese cake. They were so good! Mine was with cinnamon and it was fantastic! It’s definitely my favorite cafe.

I hope you liked reading this blog post!
