Not going to bore you with all the details, but here are the highlights of my vacation. First of, I traveled to Milan. It’s my second time in Italy, so I kind of knew what to expect. It was disappointing that there weren’t a lot of worthy touristic places + it was extremely hot. We stayed at the Boscolo Hotel which is right next to the Duomo (a huge piazza with a cathedral in the center). The hotel was very modern, but comfortable – highly recommended. There are so many shopping streets and outlets to go to. I mean Milan is known for it’s fashion industry, so shopping there is a must. We visited Lake Como that was recommended by so many people. It’s nice, but I don’t get the fuss about it. There’s a lake, mountains, and
a couple of restaurants. We went up one of the mountains, but other than the amazing view, there’s nothing. We also visited Gardaland. It’s a movie theme park. It requires an entire day or even more to get through most of the rides. We went there only for a couple of hours, but it was worth it. Really great rides! I just love roller coasters and there are great rides for kids too. We got the chance to visit Venice. It’s a long ride to get there, but it was worth it. In a bunch of hours we were able to see most of it. I think if one spent two days in it, it would be enough. There’s not much to do. We also went to Verona, another major city. It’s known for the Romeo and Juliet play. It’s worth going to and exploring the place. It’s not very big, but it’s filled with things to do. That’s it for now. More posts about the trip coming up!
