Guest post by

Milan is definitely the soul of Italian beauty. Finally, you’ve got the chance to treat yourself to a trip to Milan. How cool it would be to visit all the historic, romantic, and exciting places worth touring at least once in your life?

Well, you seem a bit tense though the news is exciting. Yes, your anxiety is quite valid because going to a new place (even for a few days) can be quite concerning. You can have some commonly faced issues related to language, accommodation, health, security, etc. Well, everything can be sorted in a matter of minutes. You read it right - just follow the list.

A Must-Visit List

Since traveling to such a place is a once-in-a-time chance so why leave anything behind? A must-visit list is mandatory before you even pack your stuff. It’s because once you decide where to go, only then can you pack (or buy new) things accordingly. For instance, you can select places according to your taste. Your visit list can look like this:

 

Art and Architecture

You can prepare a list like this if you are an art lover. By the way, Milan is the heaven of art and architecture.

  • Castello Sforzesco
  • Pinacoteca di Brera
  • Cimitero Monumentale
  • Civica Galleria d'Arte Moderna

 

History

Museums in Milan are literally breathtaking; depicting the history and natural aesthetics.

  • Santa Maria Presso San Satiro
  • Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology
  • Sant'Eustorgio

 

Fun and Only Fun

That’s okay if you aren’t that interested in the history and art of Milan. Instead, wish to enjoy the scenic views, shopping, music, and nightlife.

  • Lake Como
  • Swiss Alps
  • Naviglio
  • Opera at Teatro alla Scala

  

Language Barrier

Language becomes a grave problem when you are a tourist. As far as Milan is considered, the top 3 languages spoken in Milan are Italian, English, and French. If you are an English speaker, you can manage well because they comprehend it quite to an extent. French is spoken rarely, so if your French is fluent, you lack English and Italian skills. It’s better to carry a language translation book or a satisfying VPN connection that can become your perfect tour guide and translator.

 

Cultural Do’s and Don’ts

Before traveling to a new place, one of the basic ethics is to study the place's cultural do's and don'ts. Let's check out the most vital do's and don'ts in Milan.

 

Do’s

  • Try different cafes and restaurants because Italians love eating items available at distinct places.
  • Make efforts to look good because people there observe and admire the latest trends and fashion.

 

Don’ts

  • Don’t fight or quarrel if someone’s staring at you. It’s quite normal there!
  • Don’t add cheese to your seafood. It’s against their ethics.
  • No bread and butter for breakfast. Italians consider this a disgrace.
  • Italians prefer to stand in the bars and café rather than sit.

 

Stay in Budget

It is a fact that vacations are for the sake of enjoyment but keep your eyes open while spending. Don’t spend enough that you get out of budget. A few decisions and a smoother internet connection can literally save thousands and dollars in Milan, but having internet 24/7 is a necessity.

Go for nice and affordable hotels instead of the best and most luxurious ones. Spend money on trying things rather than wasting it on mere luxuries.

Go for Milan’s public transportation. You won’t believe how easy, comfortable, and economical it is to travel through it. You can easily track their routes on the phone.

Food in Milan is extraordinary for the taste bud. Every kind of specialties of Milan is available in both expensive and economical restaurants. Try not to have every meal at a high-priced restaurant (a few times is absolutely fine!) and go for some scrumptious dishes at normal places as well.

Safety Measures

Security must be a priority no matter where you travel, specifically in Italy. Pickpocketing, snatching, and hacking cases are being reported everywhere more than ever. No matter how luxurious a hotel you book and how safe you feel, you must have a VPN. By having a VPN for your iPhone, you don’t need to worry about most of your security issues. For instance, your online banking and its details would stay safe. Moreover, no one would be able to hack or assess your location because you’d use a VPN instead of any other WiFi.

 

Smooth Internet

Most of all, vlogging and live streaming can become exhausting even though your iPhone has awe-struck camera results? Wish to know why? The internet speed is extremely slow at public places, WiFi, and even in hotels. So, get a tension-free journey get a virtual private network (VPN) before you lose your privacy and other important information while saving a few dollars!

Your friends, family, and fans must know what you’re enjoying. For that streamless internet, connectivity is a must.

 

Health Comes First

Before anything, give your health your first priority. If you have any sort of mental or physical disorder or disease, packing medicines is the first thing you must do. Don’t forget to carry your doctor’s prescription along. Moreover, your VPN can aid you as you’d be able to connect to your doctor anywhere, anytime.

Prepare a ‘first aid box’ with your medicines, anti-septic, adhesive plasters, and elasticated bandage wrap for sprains and strains. You can check out locations of local pharmacies easily if you have the internet on your phone.

 

Remember, in a new place you might face many issues. The only way to solve them is by getting fast-speed internet which is safe and secure. The best option for a traveler is a VPN which is accessible to all at very low prices.

Now, gear up to fly for Milan because after following these tips, you are good to go. Enjoy!
