Monza: not only Ferrari and F1

2013-09-21 17.00.36 Monza is a nice city nearby Milano, worldwide famous for hosting the Formula 1 race (in one of the largest city park in Europe).

A visit to this city is worth and will offer the chance to admire also other interesting beauties, such as the charming city centre, a net of pedestrian narrow streets with café and shops, the main church (duomo), the former city hall, the old towers and walls, the lovely ‘royal villa’ (built during the austrian empire and one of the symbol of this city), the huge city park.

More info can be found here.

I would suggest a visit during a saturday afternoon, many people gather in the centre, for shopping, meeting friends, drinking a coffee…

Day trip: Trezzo sull’adda

2013-09-07 16.09.13If you are visiting Milano and want to discover something nice around the city an option for a day trip is Trezzo sull’adda, a nice town established on the bank of river Adda, which divide Milano and Bergamo provinces.

Trezzo has a nice castle as well as a pleasant pedestrian street in the centre. Of course the river, to enjoy fresh air, a nice and healthy walk.

The town and its surroundings were a favorite destination even for the great Leonardo Da Vinci.

In the famous italian novel ‘I promessi Sposi’, written by Alessandro Manzoni, Trezzo had been mentioned several times, Manzoni described the territory as the border with the former Venice’s republic.
