  • Città Alta

    Bergamo Favorites

    The town has two centres: "Città alta" (upper city), a hilltop medieval town, surrounded by 17th century cyclopic defensive walls, and the "Città bassa" (lower city). The two parts of the town are connected by funicular/cable car, roads, and foot-paths (the most convenient being immediately adjacent to the funicular station). Parking spaces are...

  • Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

    Milan Favorites

    I mentioned that the Piazza del Duomo seems like a natural center in town. In front of the Duomo itself is the piazza and it is occupied by pigeons, tourists, street vendors and people trying to sell pigeon feed to the tourists. The people trying to sell the pigeon feed were a bit aggressive and annoying. Even if you said “no” they tried to grab...

  • Villa Olmo

    Como Favorites

    "The neoclassical inspiration of Simone Cantoni fully manifests itself in the design of the villa's facade; a central body with five wide entrances in the median zone, above which rise six Ionic style columns. The roof of the villa is surronded by a balustrade interrupted by a large coat of arms of the Visconti di Modrone dukes. Especially striking...

    Milan Favorites

    Located inside the Milan Central Station is a "Left Luggage" for the convenience of travelers who want to spend a few hours (or days, I guess) exploring some of Milan before taking trains to other locations.

  • The Duomo

    Milan Favorites

    In occasion of this visit to Milano, last week in July, I couldn't enjoy in magnificient front side of the Cathedral because it was under the major reconstuctions works. As far as I was told, this works will last a couple of years because the facade of the Cathedral is in a very bad conditions. Well, I cannot say I was disappointed, because I've...

  • Transports

    Milan Favorites

    I have never flown above the alps before and of course I was looking forward to this part of our trip to Milan. On our way to Italy, though, the sky was full of clouds and it was not possible to see anything below us except the thick white carpet of the clouds. I was a little disappointed, but on our way back home, it was totally different. Already...

  • Teatro alla Scala

    Milan Favorites

    Difficult to work in the cultural area, to surrender in Milano, and not to be going to see this mythical monument that is La Scala. Alas, it was closed at every time that we presented ourselves before the doors.

  • Parks in the city

    Milan Favorites

    At 116 acres (47 hectares) Parco Sempione is the city centre's largest green space and also its most egalitarian. The park was laid out in 1888 under the direction of the architect Emilo Alemagna with the intention of creating an informal public space between the Castello and Arco del Pace which would complement both these landmarks. The resulting...

  • Churches

    Milan Favorites

    One of the best things about Milan is its churches. It has so many of them, and they are mostly all wonderful to look at. I found it quite common to be just walking down a street and seeing some pretty little church tucked down a backstreet, like the one here on Via Fabio Flizi near the Central Station, that aren't even mentioned in the guide...

    I am not sure where I got this tip - either from one of the books that I borrowed last minute from the library before leaving for Milan or it was on VT. Anyways, I hope this tip is helpful to anybody who goes to Milan and wants to see Leonardo's Last Supper. Entry to the convent next to the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie costs 6.5 Euros plus a...

  • Public Transport

    110 Euros seems a reasonable price. The single fare from Desenzano to Brescia airport's about 50 Euros. You might want to consider hiring a car. There is a big car park in Sirmione before you go into the town, and a lot of the hotels have space too.The easiest way to get to Sirmione (and a lot of fun too!) is to get the number 1 bus from Bergamo...
