There are some really good things about living in Switzerland.. When you have a never ending wanderlust like me, the alps are a perfect spot less than 4 hours away from some fab cities like London, Paris, Munich, Vienna or MILAN. Last weekend I went spontaneously with my mum to the northern capital of Italy. It was snowing like hell (sorry for the bad quality of the pix) and icy cold – nevertheless, we had a great and ‘successful’
shopping day! I share some spots with you, maybe also for a extended trip..
| MAISON BORELLA: a charming little hotel with minimalistic rooms – and a gorgeous backyard (summer) – situated in NAVIGLI.
| Sheraton Diana Majestic: a historic place to stay in milan, close to the centre but far away enough to calm down after an extended shoppingtrip.
| Da Giacomo Bistrot: an absolute must when you are in town. everything on the menu is simply delicious and on a high level, the prices are adequate.
| LUCCA: an ‘old’ place but with a young-hip-stylish look and tasty italian food!
| PIZZERIA del Ticinese: my pizza supplier in town – an absolutely lovely place in Navigli.
| LUINI: best place to get some delicious panzerotti during your sight-seeing-trip – situated at ‘Duomo’.
| PRINCI: perfect for a coffee break or lunch. I can not recommend something in particular because everything was perfect. (thanks to the COS-Seller who recommended this place!)
| TAVEGGIA MILANO 1909: the “Budino di Riso” (milk-rice-cakes) are holy! A fine pasticceria with a small caffe in the back. They make cute presents – if you need a souvenir!
| RITA: get your “aperitivo” (small appetizers served with your after-work-drinks) this charming place. For sure the best cocktails in town! After your drinks, you can also get some ‘real’ food there, if you’re still hungry…
Es gibt ein paar richtig gute Gründe um sich in der Schweiz niederzulassen.. Gerade wenn man wie ich an endlosem Fernfeh leidet, gar kein schlechter Ausgangspunkt. London, Paris, München, Wien oder MAILAND – die tollsten Städte nur ein Katzensprung entfernt. Letztes Wochenende machte ich spontan einen Kurztrip in die nördliche ‘Hauptstadt’ von Italien. Es war eisig kalt und schneite wie verrückt (sorry für die schlechte Fotoqualität) – nichts desto trotz hatten wir einen tollen und ‘erfolgreichen’
Shopping-Tag. Ein paar Lieblingsorte und Empfehlungen seht ihr oben.
