Italy is without question a great place to visit – it screams with beauty, excellent food, fashion, and style. But if we had to single out one place in the whole country that puts a big accent on trendiness, it would have to be Milan.
Milan isn’t only a place of glamour, however, as it’s also the nation’s capital of soccer and history, as well. Even if you get to visit this city for a single day, we can assure you your time there will be filled with excitement and passion.
Luxury At A Cost
Since one of the most popular European cities, Milan isn’t very famous for its cheap prices.
You can be sure your stay here is going to cost you, but at the end of the day, it’s going to be worth every cent.
The good thing about accommodation in Milan – apart from the obvious extravagance – is that there is a variety of options to choose from.
You will easily find a 15-40 EUR hostel room, while there is a plethora of 50+ EUR hotel suites here, too.
On the other hand, there aren’t many budget dining options. The cheapest lunch in Milan goes for around 14 EUR, and you can expect a nice dinner with drinks to cost you from 27 EUR up.
So Many Things, So Little Time
Milan is definitely packed with activities and sights worth seeing. That being said, you’ll probably feel like your vacation is too short even if you have taken 2 months’ worth of days off.
For starters, go see some of many historical places in Milan. We suggest visiting the Duomo, a massive Gothic cathedral, as well as the church of Santa Maria della Grazie, where Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper can be found and admired.
If you’re more of a shopping person, Milan’s got you covered. You’ll realize how easy it is to spend all your money in this city once you’ve visited Galleria Vittorio Emanuele 11. This shopping establishment took 12 years to build, and is now home to many stores, including fashion brands like Prada and Gucci.
Finally, you simply have to go with the soccer flow that is ever-present in Milan. For this, you might want to see who’s playing at the San Siro stadium, which houses both AC Milan and Inter. Ole!
