yesterday we took the train from Paris to Milan. The ride was over 7 hours long so we just went to the apartment and to a supermarket. We have never been in Milan before but we got great tips from a friend of mine. Today we walked to the city center. First of all we walked through the famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
It is even more beautiful in real life. There are many luxury shops and some restaurants.
We started to take photos but unfortunately it started to rain. Then we wanted to visit the dome however it was closed because tomorrow the pope comes to Milan. So we visited the rooftop terrace of La Rinascente.
The restaurants on the 7th floor of the department store are next to the dome, consequently the view is great.
Afterwards we visited the nearby fast food bakery Luini. The line in front of the bakery was so long but it is totally worth it to wait. Famous are the salty and sweet panzerotti. I chose the baked panzerotti with mozzarella and tomatoes and the sweet one with chocolate and strawberries. They are so delicious however I preferred the salted one. In the afternoon we went shopping along Via Torino and Corso di Porta Ticinese. There we found some beautiful unique pieces. We had a nice evening in the apartment and cooked pasta with pesto.
