“You may have the universe, if I may have Italy.”
– G I S E P P E V E R D I
You see, one of the greatest joys of travelling is stumbling across a city that makes you feel like home. Milan to me, is that city. Having visited 6 times in the last year, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. And then it hit me..
Milan is more than its Michelangelo inspired architecture, it’s mouthwatering Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli, or Leonardo Davinci’s Last Supper. I figured I had become addicted to the Italian way of life.
La Dolce Vita è il Dolce Far Niente! – The sweet life is the art of doing nothing! What exactly does this mean? Well. Let me show you.
Radisson Blu Hotel Milan:
Step 1: Book yourself into a hotel with a spa and pool.
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II:
Step 2: Take a stroll around the Galleria. Indulge in the designer shops, the Italian food, and the wine.
Duomo di Milano:
Followed by step 3. A stroll around Milan Cathedral.
And yes, It’s really as simple as that. Shop, eat and drink to your hearts desire – and with absolutely no guilt whatsoever. As Elton John once said:
“I love the food. I love the people. I love the attitudes of Italians.”
Me too Elton, me too.
