I went to Milan in November last year with Rob and two friends. It’s always limited what you can see over a weekend, but despite of this I feel like I saw most of what I wanted in/of the city. However, I wish I could visit Milan in a sunny weekend, since the grey weather, which hung over the city for the whole weekend, put a grey blanket over Milan and gave the city a slight cold sheen. But behind the grey façades there were a lot of small colourful cafes, where customers stood drinking espressos and eating tiny pastries. We visited a few of these and they are really the charm of the city. Despite the weather I had a really nice weekend – sometimes it's about who you are with, rather than where you are.
