One of my favorite parts about traveling is the food. I feel like there is no better way to immerse yourself in a different culture than to eat the local cuisine and in my opinion, Lisbon is one of the best places to go for a foodie.
In hindsight, stoping in Milan on my way from Athens to Madrid sounded like a great idea. I had wanted to go to Milan for a weekend this past year but never got the chance. When I was booking my tickets home from Athens, the best way (and by far the cheapest) was to book a ticket from Athens to Milan and then Milan to Madrid. Doesn’t sound too bad, right? I found that I could store my backpack for the day for a small fee while I explored the city and was sold on my bright idea. What I didn’t realize was that this little ‘stop’ in Milan would turn out to be more of a headache than I thought.
