Milan: One-Day Itinerary
Welcome to the bustling and fashionable city of Milan. Check into your accommodation (hopefully you have better luck than we did finding an OK place to stay for a reasonable price). As soon as you are settled in, head out the door.
Start with a stroll through Giardini Park. Next, visit the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Stop for some AMAZING gelato at Cioccolati Italiani (the line is out the door). You deserve a break after all that walking so go to Castello Sforzesco and sit at the park for a while.
In the evening, walk down to the Navigli District alongside the canal, which is lined with numerous restaurants, bars, art studios, performers and people selling crafts and wares. Have the perfect dinner at Osteria del Gnocco Fritto. The puffed bread still warm from the oven and the charcuterie alone are worth stopping in for.
The next morning you have the option to take a bus from the central train station to the airport or a taxi from your hotel. There will be cafes open early so stop in for that last morning espresso on your way to the station. Then resume dreaming of that gelato you had yesterday.
