Hello lovely bloggers,
You may all have noticed that it’s been quite some time that we haven’t updated our latest travels (city trips)…on our blog. So sorry about that!
We recently traveled through the beautiful Italy. We have already been to this country before, North-Italy . But this time we visited Milan & Rome too.
Our Italy trip started in Milano, the city known of their Fashion and delicious food. People who love everything about fashion this is the place to be! Milan has headquarters of some leading international fashion designers like Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, Armani, Versace. So its no surprise that this city is considered to be the fashion capital of the world. Milan (capital of Lombardy) is the second largest city in Italy after Rome. People who love art can also see the famous painting of Leonardo da Vinci ‘ last supper here.
If you are visiting Milan you really have to try Risotto. Because as it comes to food, risotto is the major course of the city compared to pasta and pizza in other Italian cities. Tip: Before you start your day make sure to visit Motta cafe, which you can find almost everywhere in Milan. They have super tasty sandwiches, sweets and great Coffee! We also noticed that there is so much ethnic groups in Italy, lots of Chinese, Sri langkan, African and especially Filipinos. We love the multiculture 🙂 .
Unfortunately we only stayed in Milan for 2 days so we weren’t able to see all the sightseeing and meeting up with our blog friend, the always friendly chef Luca. We would love to go back to Milan and try his traditional Italian food which always looks SO delicious. Hopefully someday soon. Check chef Luca’s blog for great recipes.

It took almost nearly 6 centuries to build this gothic cathedral. The best thing is, the entrance is free! Really beautiful architecture.
The view from the roof of the Duomo is stunning! We bought tickets( incl the elevator). Although we used the elevator, you have to take the stairs to get to the Cathedral terraces. Duomo is really worth a visit.
