Before Florence became a renaissance museum, it was the fashion capital of Italy. Unfortunately, Milan took over the title as Florence didn’t have an international airport. So it turns out that Florence is not only the birthplace of the renaissance but also the place of origin for many famous luxury brands.
Next week I will have the chance to be in Milan for the second time, and that’s a good thing. The first time I went it was January and all I can say is, that I was happy to leave. Nothing dramatic happened, except that the weather was awful. I heard that winter in Milan isn’t too pleasant, but after all I thought it’s still Italy, can’t be too bad. The first afternoon was fine, blue sky, I went on top of the cathedralit was beautiful. The second day it was snowing all day, but it wasn’t the nice fluffy snow, it was muddy snow. Nevertheless, I am willing to give Milan a second chance.
