I figured I’m never going to write a piece on my March escape to Milan so I picked 26 photos that best sum up my trip.
Dates: 2nd of March-6th of March 2015
Places visited: Bergamo, Milan, Lake Como
You know when you have a very early flight and you think it’s acceptable to have lunch instead of breakfast? Or pizza for breakfast? (btw this was my third breakfast that day) @Bergamo Citta Alta
Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo Citta Alta
Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore on the outside (still in Bergamo Citta Alta)
killer view of Bergamo Citta Alta. Bergamo proved to be quite a nice surprise.
good old-school place to have lunch and coffee. Not breakfast, though. As much as I love Italian food, their pastry-based breakfast is not really my thing. @Bergamo Citta Alta
the very Italian streets of Bergamo Citta Alta
His Majesty, The Dome
I was not particularly impressed with the Dome on the inside, only with this part where the light came in through the stained glass. That’s before I found out I’m not allowed to take pictures.
not much to say about this one: anytime is ice cream time in Italy!
I literally have no recollection of where this place is, but it’s pretty so it made the cut
another picture of the Dome, because let’s not forget why we visit Milan
pretty canes, shiny canes, little skulls on sticks that cost more than a house in Bucharest
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II or one of the most posh places on Earth
night loading…40% complete
the streets of Como, the starting point for the piccolo giro around some of the towns of Lake Como
these houses looked more colonial than Italian to me @Como Lago
life is better at the lake especially if that lake is Como
Torno, the fairest of them all!
still in Torno, Lake Como
bye bye Como!
just your regular apartment building in Milan
even the tram has a posh-vintage look. FYI you can’t buy tickets from the driver, only at convenience stores
I had to include this photo because the face of this angel made me laugh ’till I cried in the exhibition at Sforza Castle. No idea who the painter is but DAT FACE!
Bike Mi, although the city didn’t actually strike me as bike friendly.
…and I made some friends. They gave me cheese. Anyone who gives me cheese is my friend for life!
