After a month filled with challenges and complications, I am thrilled to say that it’s finally over! Moving into a new apartment at the beginning of the month was a complete nightmare, but I refused to let it dampen my spirits. Despite the added stress of working full-time, hosting visitors, and searching for a new place to live all while lacking sleep, I was determined to make the most of my remaining time in Milan. And that’s exactly what I did over the weekend.
My second visitor of the month arrived, and as always, I was filled with excitement at the prospect of exploring new restaurants, bars, and places in Milan with someone I truly enjoy spending time with. Our destination for the weekend was a hidden gem called La Bicicletta Milano, nestled between the Ticenese and San Vittore areas.
This high-end casual and artsy restaurant is decorated with old bikes and lights, and it was the perfect spot for aperitivo. We ended up staying for hours, trying out their delicious wine list. I had the Chianti Colli Fiorentini and my friend got the Morellino….twice. As red wine lovers, it’s a big deal for a place to get us to order twice!
But it wasn’t just the delicious drinks and charming decor that made La Bicicletta Milano so special. The music was the cherry on top, creating an atmosphere that was so relaxed and enjoyable that neither of us wanted to leave. This spot is definitely going on my go-to list for future visits.
So, despite the challenges of the month, I am leaving it on a high note, with a newfound appreciation for the hidden gems that Milan has to offer.
