Italy is one of the finest destinations you could ever visit, and I left the country with the whole purpose of returning more sooner than later so I can continue to explore its beautiful regions. For this vacation, I decided to travel to two of the renowned cities: Rome and Milano. Prior to the trip, I had never been to these places before, and I was eager to see by myself what all the fuss was about; I can tell you now with complete confidence that the hype is nothing but the absolute truth.
I traveled by airplane to both destinations and spent four nights in total, two in each city. I first arrived in Rome at night and spent two entire days exploring what the city has to offer; surely it wasn’t enough time. Furthermore, I went to Milano and stayed with a close friend who made sure I had the time of my life and ate the best pizza in town.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
For future trips, I would really like to compare airplane travel with the train since it seems to work perfectly fine and be even cheaper than most flights.
What tips would you give a friend?
Don't underestimate the time you should spend in each place; you'll end up regretting not staying longer.
Try packing as lightly as possible if you're planning on moving around as much as I did.
Public transportation isn't the best in my experience. Try walking! It is the best way to get to know each place.
Nightlife is amazing in either city! Restaurants, bars and of course night clubs are open until very late.
Try comparing Airbnbs and hotel prices. Remember location is super important since you'll be walking most of the time.
