Visiting a new Country could be tricky and time consuming, especially when there is not much time available; so here are my suggestions to taste the real essence of this fascinating and polyhedric city. Milan is the capital of the Lombardy region and the second most populous city after Rome. Milan is the Italian capital of the finance, fashion, design, media and research. Milan is also the fifth most Michelin starred city in the world.

In this episode I’ll show you my TOP 8 things to see and to eat while visiting my beloved hometown Milano (Lombardy Region).

Enjoy the Summer, Buona Estate!
