Every last Sunday of the moth, there is an open market along Navigli canal in Milan, Italy. It was really warm day (30c). I couldn’t believe how warm it was. Still people were not afraid to get burned under the sun. I saw hundreds and hundreds of visitors walking along Navigli, browsing items and enjoying gelato! It was called “Antique Market” because most of vendors were selling vintage and antique stuff. They were interesting, some were collectible.

Loving a wonderful weekend!

During these times… nothing is better than fresh gelato… loving Gelateria Marghera (Via Marghera 33, Milano)


 
 
 
Summer is already here… I will probably be away from time to time… taking a nice and long vacation… hope you all have great summer holidays!

The weather is so nice in Milan, Italy. Well, it could rain a lot sometimes but still it is nice and shine. I had a little time in the afternoon, checked out stores and shops around Piazza del Duomo. The tourists were packed as usual. Love a nice and easy day…

Zucca is a coffee shop inGalleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The unique thing about this place is they have an old fashion mosaic wall… love how it looks. I read a tourist guide about Zucca, it was famous for opera writers and performers to come have a cup of coffee in the past… well, it is just a walking distance to “La Scala”… no wonder… still it is famous for Milanese to come until these days.
