In 2012 my sister got married and for her bachelorette party we travelled to milan altogether. It was a very fun 48 hour trip and I am going to share some of my experiences with you !
Milan is one of Italy's most fashionable cities and one of the richest cities in Europe but it also holds several historic and artistic attractions, including the largest Gothic cathedral in the world, the Last Supper painting, and the famous La Scala Opera House. Travelers to Milan will find a fast-paced, glamorous city with a thriving cultural scene and a top city for shopping. Although the city was heavily bombed during World War II, much of it was rebuilt.
Milan is in northwest Italy in the Lombardy region, about 30 miles south of the Alps. It is very near the Lake district, including Lakes Maggiore and Como. From Milan, Rome is reachable on a fast train in as little as 3 hours and Venice in less than 3 hours.
*Transportation to Milan*
Milan has 2 airports. Malpensa, to the northwest, is a big international airport. The Malpensa Express train connects the airport to the stations of Centrale and Cadorna, near the historic center. The smaller Linateairport to the east serves flights from Europe and within Italy and is connected to the city by bus service.
The main train station, Milano Centrale at Piazza Duca d' Aosta, links to major cities in Italy and western Europe. Domestic and international bus lines arrive inPiazza Castello.
*Public Transportation in Milan*
Milan has very good public transportation, including buses, trams, and an extensive metro system.
The hotel we stayed in with all the girls from the bachelorette party was the Maison Moschino Hotel. A really nice and fashionable hotel with great interior design and bedrooms. Like Armani, Missoni and Bulgari before it, the Italian fashion house Moschino has decided to dabble in the hospitality business. Its first project is the much buzzed-about Maison Moschino in Milan, which opened last spring to coincide with the label’s runway show. Here, Moschino designers have turned their attention to a neo-Classical railway house from the 19th century that anchors a rather drab intersection at the edge of the city center. Inside, they have created a strikingly modern and very whimsical world of oversize velvet dresses that double as headboards, suspended light fixtures in the form of poodles and sheep, and ball gowns that stand in for art installations.
We had a major night out at Cavalli club where we had a three course menu and partied afterwards in the open area club above the restaurant.Here you can see the webpage:
