Milano Centrale

On my last day in Italy last week, I decided to stroll around in Milan and find those delicious cantuccini I had 3 years ago on my first visit. Ailadi, who had hosted me the night before, kept me company. She gave me one of the nicest compliment I ever received: "Sharing your company is like being on holidays".
By the way, if you visit Milan, start with via San Marco and via Solferino which are few blocks away from the Centrale station. It'll give you another impression of Milan than the negative one that is usually assumed: get a dash of dolce vita mixed with a joyful indifference tainted with the necessary outrage of luxury. And of course, on via Solferino, you'll come across this bakery with the delicious cantuccini (take the ones with almonds).
