Milan, Italy

Our gateway city

sunny 80 °F

We came through Milan a few weeks ago on our way to France and we returned for a quick stop before flying to Croatia. We had two main objectives here:

1. Eat gelato
2. Eat pizza

We accomplished the first one by having a fancy gelato while on our walk to our hotel.

Now we will tell you how we made the best pizza ever!
1. ask hotel staff where to get a good chhheeeeeeeeese pizza
2. go there and order a basic margarita pizza
3. while its being made, go to the grocery store and buy a chunk of fresh mozzarella cheese, a tub of fresh pesto and a liter of wine
4. mix the ingredients together and serve!

Optional: create a fun salad and end up with quite the feast.

We wanted to see the Duomo lit up in the evening and while on our walk we stumbled across a concert at the Galleria D’Arte Moderna. We sat outside the gates to sneak a listen until we were invited in for a proper seat  The band turned out to be called Violons Barbares and was composed of three musicians one each from France, Bulgaria, and Mongolia. The music was a very entertaining mash-up of drums strings and the Mongolian’s extremely wide vocal range, especially in the low pitches.
