36 Hours in Milan

Last Friday I left the drizzle of a British Autumn and caught a flight to Milan. I arrived to clear blue skies and 22C - bliss!

First stop Spadari al Duomo, to drop my bags and track down Mr Allium B (out in Milan for work), before heading to Cafe Trussardi for aperitivo - a couple of glasses of prosecco, some truly delicious snacks and some great people watching.

Then off for Pizza and Dolce at

Woke well rested and after a delicious breakfast went for a stroll

First stop La Rinascente - The Selfridges of Milan

You could easily spend the weekend here, but with only a day - it was a quick trip to the toy department for a present for Alice & Tom and some oil from the food hall

With presents for little one's sorted, we headed for a stroll along Via Brera towards Corso Como

 After lots of shopping, it was time for some culture and a visit to Brera Art Gallery

 next stop 10 Corso Como

Last stop Peck - Milan's best deli for olive oil, parmesan and chocolates to take home

Then back to the hotel for a quick change and out for supper at Langosteria 10 for a wonderful supper

A wonderful weekend!
