Down to the metro station
When you go down to the metro stationfrom cadorna Train station.. You will see a typical italian metro line..
Metro has three lines Green, Yellow and Red.. From cadorna station only line Green and red passes..
If you want to go to centrale, you shoul take the green line and after 5 stops you will be there.. And if you want to get to Duomo, take the red line.. or just walk..
Taking a metro ticket at first seems very complicated but its very easy.. There are ticket machines everywhere and when you get in front of the ticket machine you see a map and many buttons.. whhoooppsss..
Dont be surprised there is a blue button above all buttons and just press that.. Thats the ticket for inland travel in milano and put 1 euro to the tocken box.. Below you will have your ticket..
Go to the market.
Local markets are an integral part of the every day life. I found one on Piazzale Segrino and it was on Saturday morning; I am not sure if they organise it on any other week day. On this market, they offer a wide variety of foods - from octopus and fish until spices. Those markets offer a possibility of bargains. They are held in most of the districts of Milan, for sure in the following:
- Fiera di Senigallia - Via Calatafimi, Milan, Italy
- Mercato di Viale Papiniano - Viale Papiniano, Milan, Italy
- Via Armorari - Piazza Cordusio, Duomo, Milan, Italy
- Mercato di via Lorenzini - Via Lorenzini, Milan, Italy
- Via Fiori Chiari - Near Via Brera, Milan, Italy
- Mercato dei Fiori e delle Piante - Piazzetta Reale, Milan, Italy
- Mercato di Abbiategrasso - Piazza Mercato Abbiategrasso, Milan, Italy
- Mercatone dell'Antiquariato del Naviglio Grande - Alzaia naviglio Grande, Milan, Italy
- 'Oh bei, oh bei!' - Fiera di Sant'Ambrogio - Piazza Sant'Ambrogio, Milan, Italy
- Lunedì dell'Angelo - Piazza Sant'Angelo, Milan, Italy
AC Milan Club shop
I found one of AC Milans official club shops inside the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Got myself a decent scarf for 20 Euros to hang on the wall at home.
You can buy cheaper ones from the stalls outside but as I got one of those on my earlier trips I thought I'd get a decent on this time.
So many memories...
Ah, El Tropico Latino… So many memories, and so many drinks, so many girls… :)
This bar/restaurant is situated very close to my former language-school, so it’s no surprise I’ve been there for a couple of times…
It’s a Mexican bar, which means their food is truly Mexican, although my Mexican friends says it’s not even close to be that – but whatever…
It’s a nice, cozy and small bar with 25-30 small tables and nice waitresses. Prices are normal, and if you’re lucky they might even be able to put up the big-screen-tv, so that you can watch a football game.
We started to go here with the school, as a welcome-evening. But after the staff tried to rip us off, poor drunken students, with making us pay twice or three times what we really should have paid, the school decided that place wasn’t the ideal place…
Didn’t care though, as I went back many more times – and never had any problems again.
This place also exists in two other locals in Milan, always worth a visit. Come as you want.
The best way is to get Milan...
The best way is to get Milan by plane.
There are 2 airports: Linate & Malpensa.
They r 2 good airports but try to get in Linate cause it's closer to the city!!!
Public transport in Milan are very well organised...metro, busses and trams reach avery single road in the centre and in the suburbs. It's usually shorter to use them than the car.
