Discovering the pittoresque side of northern Italy
 
 
Posted by Adilson Randi

Last May I decided to go on EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students - Erasmus, and live abroad for a while. But I also decided, that was a great time not only for parties and making new friendships, but also for travelling. I chose a northern Italy as my destination. Now I am studying law on University of Insubria in Como. This city is amazing. The calm atmosphere of mountains and lake is making an impression. Maybe you cannot touch a night life here, but you can feel a real daily Italian lifestyle.

Como is also a great starting point to travelling around a northern Italy. Of course, I started from the closest Milan. And the first think I had was: I am delighted that I am not studying here. For me, Milan is good to visit but not to live. The streets are really crowded and full of tourists and police patrols. However, the Piazza del Duomo is one of the best places I ever seen. Milan Catedral and The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II make a giant impression. You should also visit Pinacoteca di Brera, beautiful museum with an unique collections and, if you love football, the San Siro/Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

My next stop was Florence. That city is one-huge-museum. I had only two full days but I think that is possible to spend a minimum one week in their art galleries and exhibitions. The centre is tight and there are a lot of hidden places that are worth visiting. The biggest thrill made the Michelangelo’s David – when you are looking at him, you know, that you will never be so perfect.

I am sure that it is not a finish of my wonderful Italian adventure. I have a full-of-dreams head and I am planning next trips to get to better known that impressive region. I hope, I will share with you my future experiences.
