Where I stayed
I went there and it was cheaper and in a better location. The hotel was just of Buenos Aires which is a street lined with shops and restaurants. My first full day in Milan I walked out onto Buenos Aires and the streets were blocked off for a Sunday afternoon market. There were booths selling pizza, pasta, wine, olives, cheese and salami. Each stand had samples, perfect way to start day. From there I headed to the San Siro for a football match between Inter Milan and Fiorentina. The San Siro is one of the best places to watch a football match in the world
After the game, I headed to the Duomo, the famous cathedral dates all the way back to 1386. I had a gelato in the Piazza Duomo just watching people walk by. Off to the left was the Galleria Vittorio Emanuel. From the San Siro to the Duomo to pizza for dinner, it was another perfect day.
I was also able to go see Castello Sforzesco a 14th century castle. Walking through the castle I heard a guy singing in Italian playing a guitar. He was sitting inside the castle and when I got close enough I could make out the words he was signing. Some words were in Italian and some in English, "Don't worry about a thing, everything is gonna be alright"
The food in Italy has been amazing, spaghetti with meat sauce, nuetulla crepes, salame sandwich's, pizza and gelato. Before I left in February I had emailed my relatives in Italy and I was not sure if I would make it to Italy. I knew that if I went to Europe I would try to visit them in northern Italy. So I was emailing my extending family along the way and letting them know when I got close to Italy. I received this line from Demis Giuliani, "You can stay here in my house, we prepared you a room for your permanence, my mother is a good cook! Then we'll show our country!" How could I not go to visit them, if anyone prepares a room for my permanence along with a good Italian cook willing to show me the country? I went to the Milan Central train station which felt like a museum in its own right and boarded a train for Trento where Demis would meet me and drive to Malgolo.
