Milan With No Plan

After Paris, we hopped on a plane from Paris CDG to Milan Malpensa Airport via EasyJet for 72Euros. It was quite expensive but the 6-8 hour train was more than 100Euros. What was supposed to be a 1-hour flight became a waste of the whole day after being delayed for 6 hours. Thank you EasyJet for making our lives far from easy. Upon arrival at Milan Malpensa, we took the bus to the train station and from there on to Milan Central.  There we caught up with Nikki who took us to her flat to crash for the night.

It wasn’t until we hopped off the tram and the bus that I commented “Wow nik, I didn’t realise that transportation in Milan was free.” Nikki looked at me and said “It’s not, hurry and jump”. Haha right on. An exciting first experience.

The best experience in Milan was without a doubt Pizzeria Spontini. A little joint in the Stazione Central area, the place was packed with people looking to order their massive Margherita Pan Pizza with loads and loads of mozzarella cheese. The place is now an institution and has been serving awesome pizza since 1953.

We ended up getting drinks at this Latin bar in Navigli where I had my first taste of the Spritz and the latino waiter wanted to salsa with me. We went home really late and ended up not seeing the Cathedral. Oh well.

So our Milan stopover wasn’t exactly the best start in Italy because there was a transport strike and we had to walk, a lot. But hey, still a lot of fun.

The lines are long, the pizza is hella good
