Four days to enjoy Milan and its surroundings

Summer seems like a long lost dream, and yet just a few months ago the weather was nice enough to hang out and have spring walks. If you were feeling a little bit down because of the cold weather spreading all over Europe, just let me make you travel a little bit through time and space. The spring is right here, the temperature is getting warmer, and you feel like you have plenty of new things you want to do. And why not begin all of this by going on a vacation? This led me to Milan, a few days to plunge myself into the warm, bright and welcoming atmosphere of northern Italy.

Low-cost budget in Milan

On 12th February 2017, I and my boyfriend, Gabi, started our journey to Italy, precisely, to Milan. We planned this trip a long time ago, and it finally happened. We didn’t stay too long there, but it was enough to visit a few attractions and have a taste of Italy. This trip costs us approximately 500 Euro in 3 days for both of us.

Genoa: Birthplace of the Great Explorer Columbus

It is quite puzzling how Genoa has not gotten as popular as its Italian historical neighbors. Yes, we know Rome is an exception, and perhaps, so is Venice, but how was Genoa forgotten or not made popular as Milan or Florence? I suppose half of you might not even know Genoa is Christopher Columbus’ (or Cristoforo Colombo’s, to be more precise) birthplace. His childhood home is now a museum and still stands not too far from the city center.

24 Hours in Milan... (...and a little bit of Varese too)

I’d been away from sunny Malta for four months on Erasmus in the UK, suffering from a terrible case of post Erasmus blues. One of my roommates lived in Varese, Italy just a forty-five-minute train ride away from the centre of Milan, and had headed back home too – both of us were in extreme denial that it was all over.

Getting to Cinque Terre is an adventure itself

The closest airports to Cinque Terre are in Florence, Pisa and Genoa. However, we have a very limited flights choice from Lithuania airports. Therefore, the cheapest and the fastest way to get to Italy from Lithuania is actually to fly to Milan (direct flight of a little bit more than 2 hours) or Milano Bergamo, if to be precise, which is a small town about an hour away from Milan.

Beautiful Milan, not to miss!

Milano, ma quanto sei bella! When I had the opportunity to move to Italy, I was very excited. Although I’m not very familiar with the fashion industry, I was excited to be in one of the most important cities in the fashion industry.  I was going to live and study close to beautiful Milan!  Who wouldn’t like to all of a sudden see models during a photoshoot in the streets of the city or in front of Milan’s Cathedral?!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE PLANNING YOUR TRIP TO ITALY

If you love history , Italy is the place for you .If you love fashion and shopping , Italy is also the place for you . Italy is a unique country .It has the perfect mix of modern civilizations and ancient cultures. Fun Fact : Rome has been founded in 753 BC . That means it’s been around for about 3000 years ! Milan is considered the global capital of modern fashion and design . And that contrast is what makes Italy the perfect place for a family holiday . I visited Italy in the summer of 2016 . That holiday was of of the best I’ever had . So I’ve gathered up a few tips that you need to know before planning your trip to Italy .

Pavia: A tiny italian city with cheap wine.

I can still recall the smell of wine and the old rain falling from the most beautiful sky i had ever seen. It was the smell of a tiny italian city called Pavia. Starting summer this year of 2016, i had the chance to travel as an english teacher volunteering for a children’s summer camp in Italy. My destination was Pavia, a city located 30 minutes from Milan by metro. It was my first time abroad as a colombian woman in Europe, i just knew english and spanish by then, so i didnt know what to expect. After almost 24 hours flying and taking the metro in Milan i  finally reached Pavia.
