Planning about going there? Keep reading 😉
So, in order to truly have time to visit and see as much thing as we wanted, we left on a Thursday evening to return home on a Monday morning. That way we had 3 big complete days to discover the city.
We flew by Ryanair and Easyjet departure from Bordeaux straight to Milan. Count between 50€ to 80€ round trip by plane, depending on when you want to go.
About our stay there, we decided to stay at the B&B hotel Milano San’t Ambrogio. Around 100€ a night including taxes. This Hotel is 1 km away from the center of Milan, which is really cool because you can pretty much do everything by walk.

If you also have some more time, you can take a train from Milano Cadorna or Milano Central to Lake Como. It takes around 40 mins to 1h30 to go there, depending on which village you want to go to.
We went there on a Sunday, visiting the village of Varenna. It was just so beautiful and colorful. If you want to eat a really but really good Calzone over there, you have to go to the Victoria Grill and ask for the Royal Calzone. For a good and typical ice cream, go to « la Passerella ». And then for the visit, just walk around the city, and stop to these 2 amazing gardens « Giardino Botanico Di villa Cipressi » and « Villa Monastero ».
Looking for summer shoes ? I found so much cute shoes that match perfectly spring and summer outfits (notice that you will find a looooooot of espadrilles in this selection because this is my every single summer favorite shoes to wear).
Week 4 of quarantine ... trying to keep myself busy and always be positive on everything but it's getting harder and harder. But at least, I am trying to challenge myself on different things. I have 1000 ideas coming to my mind everyday so I am working on different projects, work for my actual job and also I started writing my thesis. Anyway, I got myself bored yesterday evening, and I did some online shopping. I didn't buy everything of course haha, but I wanted to show you all the items I found online that I truly find stylish for spring. Hope you will like !
Day 5 of quarantine, trying to be as busy as I can, doing all the stuff I usually don't have time to do. I have started yoga every morning, I am taking time to cook healthy and try to be as much plant based as I can, I read books, I write articles, I read fashion magazines, I watch girly TV shows (i am actually watching sex and the city from the very beginning), I spend hours on pinterest, I restarted playing the sims hahaha (who did too I am curious ?) ...
