A long weekend in Milan

I recently had a lovely weekend in Milan with my mum ... to celebrate a rather big birthday (for her)!

One of the best things that we did was the food tour. We were really lucky to have a day when it was just me, my mum and the guide. We were taken around a range of different foodie places & even included a wee Aperitivo! Aperitivo is my absolute favourite part of Italy. Our guide was so enthusiastic and gave us so many ideas for the weekend - I really felt like we learnt a lot from the tour.  

The tour really informed the rest of our trip & we ended up spending a lot of time in the Brera district. Mostly looking in shoe shops and tasting the Prosecco!  We visited N'ombra de vin - where we had a lovely glass of prosecco. We spent quite a lot of our time admiring the Milano fashion, The D&G Martini bar & Armani hotels were fantastic places to check out the fashion.

Our one very touristy activity was going to the roof of the Duomo. The views are absolutely unmissable!
