Milan, Italy

26 (Thu) - 27 (Fri) Apr 2012

Lodging: Hotel Paganini, Via Nicolò Paganini 6

1 of 5, one week Italy trip

When I was really really young, I was always able to point Italy out from the world map, owing to its geographical shape which resembles a high heel.
Finally I've got the chance to visit Mario's homeland here in Italy with my fellow SEP buddies and a few friends of theirs who are doing their SEP in Netherlands. First stop - Milan.

Day 1

As usual, we went southwards from Lund (Sweden) to Copenhagen (Denmark) and flew from there to Milan.

Milano Malpensa Airport (Terminal 2)
There are buses in front of the arrival hall that bring us to the Central Station.

Getting to the city and wow, it really took us a while to locate where the hotel is, by using the not very helpful map that we have. Having no GPS sucks big time.

Syjia, Yiting and I reached Milan first, while the rest of our travel companions will reach later at night due to different flight schedule.

That's a bidet, no idea what you can do with that, and no idea why is it not enclosed.

Pizza Frutti di Mare @ €7.00 & Pizza Margherita @ €4.00
Pizza OK 3, Via Domenico Scarlatti, 3

Duomo di Milano (Milan Cathedral)

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Castello Sforzesco (Sforza Castle)

Parco Sempione (Simplon Park)

And finally a dinner at Ristorante Pizzeria @ Via Nicola Piccinni with Min Khai, Zing, Kian Sin and Sheng Shi after their arrival.

Can you believe that's the end of our Milan trip?!
Yup, to us, nothing really much can be done in Milan, unless you're serious about shopping.

Day 2

Off to Venice!
