Last stops, Lake Como & Milan.
Let’s talk about Lake Como first.
I have no words to describe how it looked. A large lake that forms the heart of the regions around it. The weather wasn’t the best, but the sights more than made up for it. The lake is surrounded by cafes, and walk-friendly paths. Exploring the city of Como led us to a funicular (similar to the Victoria Peak tram in Hong Kong), that took us to the small town of Brunate, where we proceeded to have a hot tea and a fantastic home-made chocolate cake (perfect for the cold).
I have only one outfit picture because it was way too cold to pose.

A day in the city of Como later, we went to Milan– the fashion capital of the world, which buzzed with life. For someone like me, this was the perfect end to the trip. Milan is a perfect melange of art, style, and culture, as well as a city made for window-shopping. Carefully curated designer store windows are the best kind of eye-candy. And the Duomo di Milano is stunning both inside and out. It’s one of the most beautiful cathedrals I’ve seen.
Milan’s got something for everyone. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II houses cafes, bookstores, and luxury brands. A free schedule allowed me to wander the bookstore here, and I was not disappointed. I made myself at home among the art, and fashion sections.
Do not miss eating at Ciccolati Italiani, a gelateria around the corner from the Duomo, and Spontini right next to it. Both the queues are worth it.

And with that, we come to the end of my Italian vacation. I hope you guys liked vicariously visiting Italy. Everyone has to see this country. No blog posts or photographs can show you its true beauty. Make it there when you’ve got the energy to walk a lot.
