uring our trip we decided to discover Italy. It has always been a desire to visit Rome and Milan and that said, so done we went! The cities are both beautiful with the absolute highlight being Rome. Wow wow wow, how beautiful it is there! You can feel the history and romance of this city everywhere.
But let’s start with Milan. Milan is known to me for two of the world’s biggest football clubs, AC Milan and Inter Milan, the Duomo and the beautiful galleries. For my girlfriend it was known for fashion, shops and clothes (the days were long). After a nice train journey we arrived in Milan at night. The next morning we went into town and visited the beautiful Duomo and Galleries that were located on the same square. We were impressed by all the splendor of this square, it was really impressive.
Apart from the square, the city was quite disappointing to be honest. It may just be us, but we were not that impressed with the city. We encountered a lot of dirt, poverty and broken buildings through the city. In retrospect, we probably should have visited the Duomo at the end of the trip, it had blown our expectations too far, making the rest disappointing.
Rome was in one word WOW! Unlike Milan, everywhere in the city is beautiful, clean and romantic. Wherever you walked there is always something to see! The Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, The Colloseum, Piazza Navona, Vatican City and in every street a beautiful church. You really never get bored here! We also had the feeling in Milan that it was not completely safe, we were constantly on our guard. In Rome we had none! You can walk here until late in the evening and enjoy this wonderful city.
