We spent our last day in Italy in Milan, where we stayed in the trendy and minimalist Hotel Straf which is located right next to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the world’s oldest shopping malls and home to some of the oldest restaurants and book stores in Milan as well as luxury boutiques like Prada.
For those interested in luxury shopping, a must visit is the quadrilatero della moda or the ‘quadrilateral of fashion’ a high-class shopping district in the centre of Milan where most of the luxurious stores in the world have a boutique. Streets to visit are Via Monte Napoleone, Via della Spiga, Via Sant’Andrea, Via Manzoni and Corso Venezia.
The Duomo di Milano, an easy 5-10 minute walk with easy access through the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
Beautiful summer evenings on Corso Como, a bustling nightlife area that overflows with people enjoying late night dinner and drinks with friends.
We enjoyed a beautiful dinner at Alla Cucina Delle Langhe.
