I got the chance to visit Italy February this year. I must say, Italy is one of the best countries I’ve seen. Italy is everything I’ve expected it to be — everything is breathtaking and simply amazing (especially Venice and Rome — I’d talk more about it later).
First stop is Milan.
Milan is the global capital of fashion and design. If you are up to a shop-until-you-drop challenge, Milan is the go to place. Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Fendi – everything you might want to look for you can find it in Milan. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the world’s oldest shopping mall, is my personal favourite. It has an impressive, spectacular architecture – very elegant and classy. Not to mention that most part of the structure is covered with glass and iron. I just did some window-shopping since I made a promise not to purchase designer items this time hehehe. Here’s some of my pictures inside Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
Aside from window shopping, I also get to visit Milan Cathedral. Also know as Duomo di Milano, the cathedral is the fifth largest Christian Church in the world — uh oh — but do note it’s construction is still not finished up to this day. As much as I wanted to go inside, the lines were crazy. I wanted to visit the cathedral’s terrace but yeah, maybe next time. So I just took beautiful pictures outside. Here are my favourite shots.
I had my first gelato or simply “Italian Ice Cream” also in Milan. It’s delicious. It was pretty cold outside but I just had to try it — for experience haha!
Here’s more picture of my Milan adventure (which is basically window shopping, sight seeing and picture taking) Enjoy! ❤
