My reply of what is that? was met with three ROFL emojis. Yes, this is all going down on WhatsApp as I have not researched Milan prior to arrival. Having learned it was a church, I headed off to the centre of Milan and it’s famous cathedral.
Postcards of the city boast sexy Italians on Vespa’s; aviator sunglassed, leather jacketed and suede loafered to the tee. In truth, Milan’s main mode of transport is a bicycle. It’s so popular, you could either rent one for as long as you need or take a bike tour.
Instead of booking into a hotel I chose an apartment in an area considered to be the hub of Milan Fashion Week. Now I’m renowned for not doing my homework as extensive research gets to complicated and presents too many options. So I logged onto airbnb, found an area where reviews included ‘good location’ and ‘fashion week’ and chose an apartment for under R1000 a night.
