A Jam-Packed 8-Day Trip to Italy: Milan

Husband and I just came back from our trip to Italy with our family. It was our first time to travel together outside America.

We bought our package from Gate 1 travel, which includes our round trip flight to Milan, hotel for 6 nights at Montecatini Terme and a hotel for 1 night in Milan, and also 3 car rentals for our group.

In addition to our hotel in Montecatini, we also got a separate accommodation in Rome and Venice to avoid the long drive.

We landed in Milan, Monday at 8 am. It was supposed to be a perfect time for us to explore Milan early but unfortunately somebody took my sister in law's luggage by mistake so we stayed until 12 noon.

Day 1- Milano

We had lunch at Princi Bakery and then proceeded to explore the city. We went to Piazza del Duomo first to see the beautiful Milan Cathedral and then some went shopping at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Later that evening we went to Sforza Castle and then took pictures at Arco della Pace.

Prepare for a lot of cheesy couple pictures for this trip because we really took advantage of having each other to take pictures. It's fun to travel with your friends/in laws. I'm so happy that I was able to not only spend time with my parents but also my husband's family as well.

We left Milan at around 9pm and drove to Montecatini Terme. It was a 3 1/2 hour drive. A huge thank you to my husband, Ritchie, to Raymund, Reena and Lyko for being so patient and for driving while we, the passengers, rested early.
