Fashion Capital of the World!! Going to Milan, from The States, only requires a US passport. The currency is the Euro. We flew into MXP Airport and took the Malpensa Express to the Milano Centrale station. From the Milano Centrale you can get to anywhere in Milan. The monument to see is the Duomo. It is not the Notre Dame of Paris (my fav) but it is an astonishing cathedral
We did not spend much time in Milan but if your on a budget, I highly recommend Hostel Ostello Bello. This is the very first hostel I have stayed in because friends and family always caution about the safety of hostels. They are so wrong– at least when it comes to Ostello Bello. The Hostel itself is sooooooooo darn cute and the host’s are very kind and go over and beyond what is expected. Thank You Ostello Bello for an Awesome experience!!
