Although I have been to Italy many more times than I can count, Milan was never on the list of places to go. Over the years I have heard so many different stories and opinions about the city that  for some reason I just never seemed to gather my strength to go and take it all in. To go and see for myself and develop my own opinion.

But then the Australian part of our family informed us that they would be traveling through Italy in July 2015, and we realised that we would actually be able to meet up for 4 days in Milan. It was a no-brainer, and of course we absolutely HAD to meet up, and see Milan together!
