Happy Hour: How to eat for free...
Happy Hour in Italian is called "APERITIVO": the idea is that in most of the Milano's bars after 6:30 you can pay €7 and get a drink with a plate of food. It’s buffet style, and you can choose from pasta, rice salads, sandwiches, shrimp, etc.
Basically you only pay for your drink or cocktail, and the food i free...and you can take as much food as you like!
Palazzo della Posta
Palazzo della Posta (Post Office Palace) was built at the beginning of the last century, according to the project of Luigi Broggi, and was destined to accommodate the Milan Stock Exchange offices.
Build in classical style with the statues representing the god of Commerce, Mercury, the palace became head office of the Post Office following the launching of the project for the current Stock Exchange Palace in 1930.
Another Cool Club To Party In. Shocking!
Don't ask me why the owners called this club SHOCKING. I wasn't too shocked when I visited this place some weeks back. ;-)
Well, this club is basically a small underground disco jam-packed with many fashion models living in town. Oh, in case you're not aware, fashion models get into this club and other famous clubs for FREE. Actually, if you're a beautiful and well-dressed lady, they'll let you in for FREE too. :-) Guys? No matter how handsome they look, they HAVE to pay the entrance fee. Sorry, guys!
Not as expensive as you might think, luckily.
: Although I mentioned under the “danger”-area that the taxidrivers in Milan often tries to take a couple of extra euro from you – it’s a very good way to transport yourself in the town. Buses and metro goes everywhere more or less, but it’s not always you’re in the mood of sitting on an old bus or metro. Plus, the last metro goes shortly after midnight, and the last buses goes around 2-2.30 in the morning. Then you’ll have to take a taxi.
There is a huge taxi station at the central station, while you’ll also find a station at the Cadorna train/metro station. Although definitely not so many taxis there as at the central station.
There are other stations too, as at Corso Buenos Aires in the center, and at the Piazza Duomo.
Easiest is to call for a taxi, watch out for the number on the cars during the day. You never know when you’ll need one.
You won’t be able to stop a taxi on the street, as the taxidrivers have to pay any injuries caused if they stop on the street. So they will just look at you, nod their head and drive on.
Taxi in Milan aren’t cheap, but neither expensive. The thing that cost the most is the starting fee, where you’ll pay 3,10 euro just for jumping into the taxi during the day. And 6,20 euro after 19.00 in the evening. After that it doesn’t cost that much. But try your best to not being tricked by the drivers when it’s time to pay…
