European vacation – Milan, Italy

alwaysgaia Traveling



so here we go again, as some of you may know I’ve been on vacation in April and it was really awesome. We went to Europe, 3 different countries, 5 cities and it was amazing!

So, let’s start in the beginning; with the plan. We decided to see northern Italy, northern Croatia and Slovenia; therefore we started with Milan-Venice-Opatija-Ljubljana-Milan-Rome. Tight schedule for 14 days but its was amazing.

Today’s post will be about Milan. I spent A LOT of time in Milan in the past, I met my husband in Milan, and its is just a very special city for me. I will tell you all about my favorite restaurants, places to visit, etc.

After a 14+ hour flight, I just couldn’t wait to get to the hotel, I was really tired and just wanted to take a nap. 😀 lol We stayed  in hotel called Principe di Sevoia, very close to downtown. The service there was amazing and it was very beautiful!

After my rest all the fun began; we went to one of my favorite tapas bars in Milan! This is me super excited to be back, ridding the metro and soon getting some amazing food at: il Tasca

 Just down the street of this amazing tapas bar is this lovely basilica, called Basilica San Lorenzo Maggiore it sits on a lovely square and in the night time looks really amazing!

The next couple of days we spent time in Brera, old part of Milan, enjoyed a lot of great food and did a lot of shopping! 🙂
