Milan is the Paris of Italy. Paris is always a good idea as Audrey Hepburn says. I think Milan is too!
Every time we go, we discover something new. This time it was the Boscolo Hotel, the hair make over at Marchianos, the Salsamenteria di Parma Restaurant, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum and of course the shopping and the risotto! It was only 2 days, but every minute was packed!
We always treasure our visits with the Nebulonis! They met us at the Boscolo Hotel where we stayed.
Cool lobby of the Boscolo!
Boscolo Pool and Spa
Our bedroom at the Boscolo
Cool bedside lamp
Breakfast buffet mini pancakes skewered with ham and cheese at the Boscolo!
Dinner at Salsamenteria di Parma Restaurant. Very authentic food from the food capital of Italy, Emilia-Romagna!
Lambrusco is a sparkling light red wine served cold to balance the heavy flavors of the Emilia–Romagna region.
And for dessert, Salumi de Chocolat! This is a dessert I have made which is a base of broken vanilla wafer like cookies with chocolate, butter, nuts and powdered sugar. The light color pieces of cookie are to represent the fat chunks of salami! It’s a cookie log that is not baked which is rolled in powdered sugar and then sliced.
Those aren’t my legs:)
A hair styling involved all these people plus one more!
The Poldi Pezzoli Museum is a private mansion turned into an art museum. Similar to the Fricks in NYC and the Isabella Stewart Gardener in Boston.
Milan is a beautiful exciting city that should be on your travel list. Next time I’d go to the Expo!!! It’s like the Worlds Fair of Italy, focusing on FOOD! It’s located in Rho, a town just outside Milan.
