The twenties anniversary of Vienna’s Ice Dream goes slightly but slowly to an end. Only one more week to enjoy the magical scenery with a 7,000 m2 area, which offers a fantastic icy landscape for skating fans.
I had a fantastic girls-night-out last Saturday, and just can highly recommend not to miss this opportunitiy in the middle of Vienna’s most beautiful history buildings on the Ring Street.
Don’t worry, if you don’t own a pair of ice-skates. There is a perfectly organized Skate rental, which offers a pair for 6,50 a day. Over 1,200 pairs of skating boots are pre-heated with warm air throughout the day.
Various booths and a great rustic mountain lodge spoil guests with culinary delights and make it very comfortable for the ones, who don’t like to skate.

After breakfast, lunch, climbing 250 steps up to the rooftop terrace of Duomo Milano and enjoying the most amazing exhibition, we headed up a bit north for a casual walk in the narrow and – oh so -charming streets of the beautiful district Brera, and of course for some more dolce far niente in lovely little italian cafés. The most lovely area of Milano IMHO.
Small boutiques, little cafés and groceries full of the best italian products you could imagine.
Enjoy the photo gallery of an afternoon in rainy Milan, which made everything even a little bit more mysterious and special.

After finishing the city memories of a day trip in Milan, I still can`t believe, that there were 3 parts needed to share what we saw on just one day. And we really did it the italian way. Many stops in small cafés and didn’t rush around the city. You see, 12 hours in Milan could be quite the holiday break in-between with the morning-flight at 7AM and heading back to Vienna at 8PM or even later.

And if I would live a bit more south, exactly this Vespa would be the transportation of my choice:
