Holidays are nice particularly holidays to Italy. Having recently returned from an excursion to the boot peninsula I am glad to confirm that Italy is a good place to have a holiday.
A mere week was all the time I allotted myself for such a boot like country and yet my accomplice and I managed to cram in a bucket load of stuff.
Our journey began in Milan, it was also my Birthday (no coincidence). Often described as the industrial powerhouse of Italy, this city has many a quirk. A particular favourite of mine is the Duomo. Housed in a vast piazza, the Duomo is certainly the most iconic building in all of Milan and for good reason. Just look at it! It is gargantuan, colossal, intercontinental, ok that last description may have been a bit of an overstatement but I’m sure you understand where I’m coming from. The whole city seems to revolve around this vast monument: designer shops galore, scrumptious cafes and restaurants. One of my favourite hobbies is people watching and the steps of the Duomo are ideal for this.
Unfortunately we had given ourselves just a day for this awesome city and after a whistle stop tour we were soon on our way to Florence…
