Last year my family and I went to Italy for the first time. In the good ole days we used to go to Spain a lot, so Italy was somewhere new and exciting. We flew into Milan Bergamo airport and stayed in a lovely hotel called Hotel Mediolanum for three nights. It was an enjoyable trip and we plan on visiting Rome on our next holiday.
Places of interest we visited were Duomo dil Milano, Teatro alla Scala, Sforza Castle, Corso Buenos Aires, Porta Venezia, Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Gae Aulenti. One of the days we visited Lake Como, Bellagio and Varenna. It was well worth the hour journey by train to see such spectacular scenes. It was January, so a quite time of year to visit for tourists. It would be great to go again in the summertime. Decathalon was one of my favourite shops in this city. This is a big sports shop with good quality clothes for a low price that is popular in many European countries. I also loved the Swatch shop. Foodwise, a large quantity and variety of pizza and pastas were consumed throughout the four days. This city has wonderful architecture, galleries and theatres. 🍕🍝
