Weekend in Milan Part 2


On Saturday it had been impossible to get a table at Signorvino, but G and I were lucky the next day. 


G insisted that I drink a glass of Gewürztraminer from Bolzano. I try to refrain from drinking alcohol at lunch because it makes me want to have a siesta after but she made it sound as if I was going to miss out on something and I gave in. The wine was sweet and very pleasant to drink. 


One of the few non-meat dishes was spaghetti with mozzarella. Very simple but such a delight!


To be honest, for once I didn't feel guilty about ordering tiramisu. 


Can you see the sea of people out in the streets? Milan gets really busy on weekends, and especially before Christmas. 


We escaped the masses by taking a side street and heading to Brera. 


We almost walked past this ice cream shop and when we went in, I was determined not to have another dessert. But after hearing G's praises and being given a taste sample by the young and handsome server, I surrendered and picked two flavours: 


Fior di panna and cremino Ludovico. 


It was getting dark when we walked towards Garibaldi, where we explored the shops and the Christmas market around the newly constructed Piazza Gae Aulenti. 


I last saw such a massive pan of tartiflette at the Christmas market in Paris last year. 


Before leaving for my late evening flight, we had an aperitivo with R, a male friend (I knew him when he lived in Luxembourg), at Noon next to Cadorna station. 


R bought me a Spritz, a typical aperitivo cocktail. And then it was soon time to hop on the Malpensa Express and fly back home to Luxembourg.
