My Milano is Versatile
Hanna is a Marketing student from Kyiv, Ukraine. Innamorata with the symphony of bustling Milano, she feels to finally have found the city she belongs to, the community she can contribute to, and the best place for a culinary pilgrimage ever.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MILANO?
I was born and raised in the capital of Ukraine - Kyiv, which is already a busy city with a three-million population. With no thought of slowing my rhythm down, I have chosen inclusive and business-oriented Milano as the starting point. As soon as I have obtained my 12-year secondary education and turned 18, I rushed to the airport and my plane took off for a long-awaited date with Milano.
Mythbusting about Milano
Man does not live by Duomo alone. But this forest of pink (!) marble statues "offers a vision of ravishing beauty to the world" (cit. Stendhal)Read this content >
Something about DuomoExpand
I have heard a lot of prejudice about this city: “The best thing about Milano is the train to Rome”, some even say. All I can suggest is first and foremost to invite you to read some YesMilano websire, especially the guides for students! Man does not live by Duomo alone.
My Favourite Weekend Routine
Navigli has something for everyone – check my tips and see for yourself!Read this content >
You don’t need much to feel the harmony amidst the bustle of city life: just take a "Brutto&Buono" gelato at Venchi, watch locals walk their well-groomed and well-fed dogs in Parco Sempione and savour the bohemian atmosphere of Navigli district (which I eagerly invite you to read in my fresh guide!).
Talking about food...
Also known as cotoletta (cutlets), from the French côtelette, this is one of Milano’s oldest traditional dishes, although the Austrians also claim to have created it with their Wienerschnitzel (which actually comes from the haunch instead of the sirloin). It is mentioned as lumbulus cum panitio, or breaded veal loins, in a document from the year 1148 preserved in the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio.Read this content >
Taste a CotolettaExpand
I have an enormous passion for food - who doesn’t? Milano will delight you with a variety of culinary offers, both local and global tastes. Oh, that’s a moment for digitalisation to kick in - try downloading Yelp on your phone. When looking for a place to eat next time, you will find the one for you basing on reviews and your tastes. I would recommend trying a "cotoletta milanese" at "El Barbapedana" near Porta Genova. Why not trying Russian and Ukrainian cuisine at "Veranda" restaurant? Blinis with red caviar and authentic vodka will work fine as aperitivo a-la Rousseau!:)
