The Traveling Diaries No.19

"Fashion Capital: Milan"
by Angelic Roman

One of the huge bonuses for us on this study abroad program has been the luxury of three day weekends. This last weekend, my roommate and I planned the train ride up to Milan (which took about an hour). We landed in Milan during their design week and so the city was alive with events and fashion. However, I imagine this city is always on a buzz.

One of our first stops was the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the famous shopping mall. It was built in 1877 and is truly a sight to see. As soon as you exit you are greeted with the beautiful Duomo and on the other side the Teatro Alla Scala.

We also got the chance to visit Palazzo Morando or free (thanks to design week) and get a peak at some beautiful 19th century costumes and corsets. Palazzo Morando is located just next to Via Montenapoleone (the fashionable must-see street in Milan).
