Milan: Travel Diary!

Another travel diary, this time to the fashion capital-Milan.
The highlight: I had the best food ever! :D Nothing beats Italy. All hail.

1) List of places: That’s my list of places on google maps, a friend from Milan helped me to make this list, feel free to use and share it with your friends: Pulkit’s List

2) Getting around:
I was there for two days, so I got myself a 48-hour transport pass which costed me 8.25 EUR, it was valid for the whole of Milan and covered every mode of transport: buses, metro & tram. You can get it at any metro station or from the automated ticketing machines, inside a bus or from convenient stores.

3) Accommodation:
I stayed at Hostel Colours which is quite well located, just a stop after Piola (The technical university of Milan), it’s very good for the price. A stay for two nights costed me 45 EUR including breakfast.

4) Pictures:
As always, I clicked a lot of pictures, I am sharing a few below. The rest you can check it out on Instagram: @pulkitbatra1994

Pizza by the slice and draft beer at Spontini

6) Alps:
If you will be travelling via road from Germany, you can plan your trip via the majestic Alps and enjoy the views. Switzerland has the best road infrastructure, despite the terrain. I loved it!

Alps “It is like falling in love. If you can notice, the grass is greener, the sky is bluer and the air is fresher. I don’t know if it is the magic of the Alps or an emotional gravitational pull for the soul, but what I know is, it is truly Paradise on Earth!” ~Shahla Khan

Have fun and enjoy your time in Milan!
Love always <3
