MyDeal’s Guide To Milan
A magnet for designers, artists, photographers, and models, Milan is one of the fashion centres of the world, boasting an elegant backdrop rooted in Roman times.
From its imposing historic centre and fashion districts to the countryside outskirts, Milan is a rare and appealing mixture of ancient values and contemporary lifestyle. The Navigli area features a concentration of restaurants, from pizzerias to fine seafood haunts, while Piazza del Duomo, boasting the Milan Cathedral, one of the largest cathedrals in the world guarding the city’s cobblestoned streets since 1385, opens to shops, theatres, museums, and galleries in the city centre. Big fashion names can be found in the Corso Buenos Aires or Corso Vercelli, and cultural sights are plentiful, including attractions such as the Sforza Castle. Art lovers will rejoice at the chance to take in Italian art from the 14th century to modern times at Pinacoteca di Brera. Milan has a humid subtropical climate with hot days of summer and humid rather cold days of winter. Spring and autumn come with moderate weather conditions when the nights will be colder than the days, and rainy moments will be frequent. Winter knocks at the door with positive temperatures, such as 7°C, but the sun won’t shine like in the previous months.
MyDeal’s Guide To Rome
From famous historic sites to relatively obscure catacombs, basilicas, fountains and museums, the Eternal City has many things to offer, as city landmarks go hand in hand with vibrant city nightlife.
Passing through old cobblestone streets and ruins, visitors can catch a glimpse of Rome’s main attractions such as the Pantheon, one of the best kept classical architecture buildings in the world, the iconic Trevi Fountain and the Vatican Museums. Sweeping views over the city can be captured on film and camera from the Spanish Steps, where holidaymakers can unwind over a prosciutto panini or a gelato after a day of exploring numerous shopping centres and bazaars. Nestled beneath the Vatican walls, the Prati district mixes elegant office buildings with high-end boutiques and public squares, while imposing military barracks and Museo delle Anime dei Defunti provides a unique experience. Tourists can also get a taste of a typical Italian night out by visiting local restaurants, bars and clubs and enjoying a classic pizza or pasta. Rome has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and rainy winters. October and November are the wettest months of the year, while weather in December is often overcast, cool and rainy, with average temperatures dropping to 10°C.
