I was impatiently looking forward to my wonderful trip to Milan. I have not been in Italy prior to, but I've heard a great deal regarding the Italian towns, the pizza and pasta, the ice-cream and also a lot far more. We arrived at the airport in Bergamo and from where we traveled about an hour by bus to Milan. We settled down in our vacation apartment in Milan and started our discovery on the wonderful streets. We saw the Milan Cathedral - Duomo, already lit, shining. As every misguided tourists we do not miss drinking coca cola for 11 euros along with a cafe opposite the cathedral. None of us realized that we have been on Merkanti Street, in restaurant Merkanti. Regardless of that the spaghetti was delicious, a bit raw, but apparently they prepare them like that.
Around the next morning (Saturday) we ate inside a neighborhood quick food scrumptious croissants. Then we decided to possess a stroll about the city - our first cease was Sempione Park (Parco Sempione) - a superb place for relaxation, especially when the temperature is 30 degrees Celsius. There was a pond with ducks, persons sleeping on the benches and people today who were around the beach.
Tired in the stroll, we decided to have a snack within a common Italian restaurant - pizza and pasta. This time we reviewed the menu in detail - the drinks were with normal costs and we got inside, where the air conditioning was our award after several hours on foot. In the afternoon we decided that it was time for buying and we departed to Buenos Aires Avenue. You'll need at the very least 4-5 hours to view all of the shops only on among the sides of your avenue. We reached the middle, our bags were complete and we have been tired, so we gave up from the tempting discounts that have been expecting us on every single intersection. It really is undoubtedly an incredible deal to take a look at this avenue when there is sale, mainly because you get very excellent high quality garments and footwear on a reasonable price.
On Sunday in the end of your weekend along with the beginning of our trip to Verona. We left out vacation apartment in Milan and went towards the railway station. However, we located out that there was no operating place where you can eat a croissant. Finally, we located a neighborhood restaurant and soon after long waiting and attempting to understand the Italian, we understood that one of the staff is Bulgarian. Abruptly the communication became less difficult and our order was served. The subsequent quit was the railway station. Right after a extended battle with the ticket machine we succeeded receiving a ticket to Verona with reserved seats. In truth, the truth is the fact that it can be considerably more quickly and less complicated to buy tickets from these machines, since on the counters you can hardly find any one who knows somewhat bit of other language in addition to Italian, and these wise machines function in English, French and German.
After virtually two hours we arrived in Verona - a wonderful town, I am in like with it, it has an outstanding atmosphere - narrow streets, flower balconies, a crystal river and old-fashioned bridges, I felt like I am in a fairytale. I did not miss attempting the ice-cream, it didn't step back towards the a single in Milan - the Italians make delicious ice-cream with pieces of fresh fruits.
And so our adventure ends. The following day we departed for the airport and came back at residence.
