Piazza Castello, 20121 Milano MI, Italy
An absolute must-see attraction in Milan is the Castello Sforzesco, an utterly beautiful and enormous castle, built in the mid 1400s, with a rich and storied history as a citadel, now housing an art museum. But what gave me a chuckle was the...

Piazza di Santa Maria delle Grazie, 20123 Milano MI, Italy
Besides the fashion and the Duomo, another great reason to visit Milan is the famous Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci, located at the Santa Maria delle Grazie. It's better you reserve the tickets ahead of time since they only have limited time...

Piazza del Duomo, Milano MI, Italy
Milan was a dream: Shopping. Culture. Unlimited cafes and gelato shops. It was love at first sight. We were fortunate enough to get a hotel in the heart of the city, and we were two blocks away from this amazing Duomo. Two blocks! I still cannot...

The Bermuda Triangle and Kansas Rectangle may be places of mysterious disappearance, but Milan's Fashion Quadrilateral is a small area of style where you will definitely want to get lost. With Via Montenapoleone, Via Manzoni, Via della Spiga, and...

Piazzale Cimitero Monumentale, 20154 Milano MI, Italy
This is probably one of the most interesting places in Milan. It's amazing and at times creepy to walk around the graves. There's even a Last Supper family tomb.

Alzaia Naviglio Grande, 34, 20144 Milano MI, Italy
While few in number, Milan's canals can be charming. Naviglio Grande, the largest, is my favorite to walk along. Lined by shops, outdoor cafes and bars, there is life alongside the water anytime of day. If you're lucky you'll catch the Antique...

Sant'Elena, 30132 Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
"You're going to get lost in Venice regardless, so stick your map in your map pocket and just wander." Our tour manager couldn't have been more right. This was one of the narrowest alleyways we went down when we had lost ourselves in a seemingly...

Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
One of the best ways to schedule a quick walk through venice is to use churches as goal posts. A walk from the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute to the Chiesa di San Sebastiano is one of my favorites because it all happens in the Dorsoduro...

Campiello Traghetto, 2467, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
The Gritti Palace's Bar Longhi is possibly one of the hottest tickets in Venice. It's where Hemingway drank his way through evenings while he was staying upstairs finishing his novel, Across the River and Through the Trees. Many other celebrated...

Dorsoduro, 701-704, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy
Venice at pretty much any angle is a perfect shot. This photo was taken on the dock of the Guggenheim museum in Venice. The museum has one of the best collections of Surrealist art that I've seen.

Free museum in the heart of the city. Great escape on a hot day, nice selection of Italian art across history. However, the true gem is the building itself I think.
