Recap Italy Holiday #1 ♥ Milan

Recap Italy Milan 32

Hi everyone, at the beginning of August we went to Italy for a couple of weeks. In this blogpost, and a couple of upcoming blogpost, I’ll recap the trip for you. I hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed my trip!


My mom and I went to Italy together by plane. We flew from Düsseldorf Airport to Milan Linate Airport. I was super afraid to fly. That’s why I didn’t enjoy the flight itself. I did make a couple of beautiful pictures though.

Our airplane!

We flew almost the whole time above the clouds. So I couldn’t actually tell where we were. The flight was 1 hour and 20 minutes long. It was around 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) in Milan when we arrived . Too hot, haha!

We took a bus, a metro and we walked for a while, but we finally reached the hotel after more than an hour in the heat! We chilled for a while and after that we went outside to get diner. We ate sushi and it was delicious!

This was sooooo delicious! I’m getting so hungry now while typing this!


On Wednesday, we went shopping. It was still super hot, but that didn’t stop us from shopping. All the stores had airconditioning so we went from store to store! After a while, we got tired and we went to a café for something to drink!

And more drinks…. Shopping & the hot weather made us thirsty!

One of the highlightes of this shopping day was going to Sephora! I had never been to Sephora and I had been saving for almost a year to buy something fun at Sephora!

I bought the Hoola Lite Bronzer and the Too Faced Funfetti Palette. I will be doing a separate collective haul where you will see both products!!

After shopping the whole morning at Via Buenos Aires, we went to Piazza del Duomo for the afternoon! And I did made some beautiful pictures there! But first, we went to McDonald’s for lunch!

Piazza del Duomo is the place where the Milan’s Cathedral is. I did made some pictures of the Cathedral (Duomo).

Near to the Cathedral, you can find one of Milan’s most expensive warehouses: La Rinascente.

It was such a beautiful warehouse to walk through. It has the most expensive brands and at the top you could find several restaurant, a little supermarket and a panorama-point!

We also saw the Ferrari Store!

This was so beautiful to see! At the last picture you see a Formula 1 car by Ferrari!

Literally, Milan is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been!

After shopping again for a whole afternoon, we sat down and ordered some icecreams!

Italian ice cream is the best ice cream ever! I had a magnum look-a-like with coconut ice cream and mom had a berries ice cream!

We went back to the hotel and on our way back I could make some beautiful pictures again!

After chilling at our hotel for a while. We went out for some diner. We already had sushi the day before, and since we were in Italy, we wanted to have some typical Italian food!

I ate a spaghetti pesto and it was so delicious!

And that was already day 2 of our little Milan-trip.


Ahhh, this day we left the beautiful Milan. (booh) BUT, we went to our holiday-destination Peschiera del Garda which wasn’t bad at all!

While walking to the central station I saw this hotel called the ‘NYX hotel‘ and I immidiatly had to think about the make-up brand NYX cosmetics. I’m still wondering if it was their hotel or just a hotel who chose their name randomly!

Recap Italy Milan 27

It was soooooooooo hot that day. Also at the central station, there was no airconditioning there because it is a super old (but beautiful) building. We had a cappuccino and something to eat before our train left!

Recap Italy Milan 28

Going with the train was a disaster. We went in 1st class because we thought it had airconditioning but it hadn’t airconditioning so it was 1.5 hour of sweating and puffing.

4 hours after we left the hotel, we finally arrived at our residence in Peschiera Del Garda. We packed our clothes and other stuff out our suitcases, chilled for a while and took a shower. Around diner time we walked to the center of Peschiera for something to eat. We went to Peschiera before, so we know where the good restaurants are. All’orologio is one of our favorites, so that’s where we ate the first night!

Parma Ham & Parmezan Cheese (and my coke lol)

Recap Italy Milan 33

Tortellini with ham and cream sauce, my favorite food ever!

I also made a couple of pictures of Peschiera that night!

The night ended with a beautiful fireworks-show I watched! Literally, it was one of the most beautiful fireworks I’ve ever seen. But as well fireworks, very hard to make a nice picture of!

So these were the first couple of days of our Italy-holiday. I hope you liked it. I will be uploading the rest of our trip the upcoming weeks. Let me know if you have any suggestions for me to improve the blogposts!

Much love, Anne

  1. Italy sounds amazing, and all the food looks totally delicious. Especially the pesto spaghetti, I’m hungry! The Ferrari store looks so cool and of course Sephora is always a must. I would have instantly thought of the NYX makeup brand if I’d have seen that hotel too. Glad you had a lovely holiday 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness, I was LOVING all your snaps from your Italy trip. I think my favorite picture is of Peschiera, such a gorgeous view, I could just stand there for hours admiring. Speaking of admiring, Piazza del Duomo- unbelievable! That may be THE most beautiful most detailed cathedral, it’s just jaw dropping. AH I am soooo excited that you went to your very first Sephora!!!! Was it a good experience? Hoola is an amazing brand, I can’t wait to see your pallet, you’ll have to do a post with both the items you got! The food there looks mouth watering and delicious. I obviously have to comment on the sushi first and foremost, because I <3 sushi, it looks incredible, and now I also want some after looking at those pictures. But next that pasta- I can't even imagine how amazing the pesto spaghetti must be over there. It's good here in the USA but I mean, in Italy, I'm sure it's a completely different experience! Also NYX hotel, when I first read it I thought that it was going to be related to the NYX cosmetics brand too I just looked it up and I don't think the two are correlated, probably just a coincidence but pretty cool!!! Thanks for sharing with us and welcome back sweets <3

    xo, JJ

    1. Ah so glad you liked it Jenny, glad you liked Peschiera as well. I spent there 10 days and I made a lot of beautiful pictures there. I hope I can upload a new blogpost about it soon! Looking back at the blogpost, I also get hungry. That good in Italy tho, wow, one of the best things of the holiday! Pasta in Italy is much better than you get in Italian restaurant outside of Italy. The whole atmospheres in the restaurants are so different. Such an experience! Sadly the hotel and the NYX cosmetics company aren’t related, that would have been so cool! xoxo
