Milan, Milan, Milan. How excited I was to see the city and how let down I was. I came to Milan through Malpensa Airport: one of the many airports in the city.
But as soon as I stepped into the city, I knew it wasn’t a great start as it was raining and a rainy Milan is not what I wanted or needed after my tiring journey. After being hassled by several Umbrella sellers and the heavy rain, I managed to get to Milan Cathedral. That was a beautiful sight for sure. The detail and architecture was just breathtaking and might have been worth all the rain.
After exploring Milan Cathedral there was nothing to so but I persevered and carried on as I always believe that the best sights are found when you wander without a destination. Dripping with rain and feeling a little cold I stopped for lunch being thankful for the fact that I was in Milan only for one day as other than expensive brands and overpriced restaurants there was nothing to do or see.
Milan is a beautiful city but sometimes I feel that tourist locations are hyped up without any reason and that is why I was so surprised by Milan. The Cathedral was beautiful but is it worth a trip to Milan I wasn’t so sure. People always say how Milan is definitely worth a visit but if shopping is not your list then Milan shouldn’t be either.
