Happy Family Day to all of you who have today as a holiday in Canada and Happy President’s Day to our friends to the south.
Today’s installment of my trip is my day trip to Milan. I am aware that Milan is in Italy, not Switzerland but, when you live in Zürich you can take a quick day trip to Milan, which is exactly what we did. I know, how luxurious. My friend A and I took the train down, and it is a gorgeous ride. My friend had warned me that the landscape would change significantly as we traveled south, and she wasn’t kidding.
We started with this view out our window….
Then we arrived in Milan and ventured our way to the main square. We checked out the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is the oldest shopping mall in Italy. Wouldn’t it be great if all our malls looked like this?
Our trip was planned really to do a little shopping, since the prices are so horrendous in Zürich. Although I didn’t buy much I did get to visit a Zara Home! I know, BIG highlight. I didn’t go crazy but I did pick up these pretty knobs.
So, that is it for my day in Milan. Only 2 more trip posts left, and I will try to space them out in case you are getting sick of them!
Have a great day!
