The city where I would love to live

My relationship with Milan is as old as my relationship with my husband… It all began here, in this city where we started our life together. Here, I studied and worked in the fashion industry, learned the Italian language, and got my first job at an Alexander McQueen store. And it was here that we decided to get married.

I have a deep love for Italy, particularly the south, but Milan holds a special place in my heart. Milan may be a small city, but it is always bustling. Sometimes it feels like you’re not in Italy anymore. The leisurely Italian rhythm fades away, and an electric atmosphere fills the air. Milan is the epicenter of fashion, design, food, and tourism. It hosts major exhibitions that attract a diverse crowd from around the globe.

This city houses some of the finest universities, academies, and schools, drawing young people from all corners of the world. In my opinion, Milan is one of the few cities in Italy that sets the trends for visitors rather than adapting to them. While tourist destinations in Italy cater to tourism and create themed parks, Milan makes its own choices and showcases what it believes in.

However, it should be noted that people come to Milan specifically to discover something new and extraordinary.

Here, you can find the most unique art exhibitions, creatively curated shops offering one-of-a-kind items, vintage markets where young people search for distinctive and affordable treasures, and representatives from fashion houses seeking inspiration. And, of course, there is no shortage of curious shoppers.

Food? Milan has it all, representing the diverse flavors from all corners of Italy at their finest. International cuisine also thrives here, with particular attention given to Asian gastronomy. Ravioli is Milan’s signature dish! Yes, indeed! And there are also prevailing culinary trends.

It is worth mentioning that historically, young individuals from the south migrate to Milan in pursuit of employment opportunities and a broader horizon. That’s why Milan always carries a southern, passionate vibe, not to mention the delicious food!

Milan is also a city known for its high cost of living. Everything comes at a price, and the cost of living here differs greatly from other cities in Italy. The standard of living in Milan is much higher and it depends on various factors, including housing, lifestyle, and food expenses. For instance, accommodations can be pricey, especially in the city center or popular neighborhoods. On average, renting a one-bedroom apartment in central Milan costs around 1200-1500 euros per month.

Food can also be expensive in Milan, particularly in upscale restaurants. The average cost of a meal at a restaurant is around 25-30 euros. Of course, cooking at home allows for savings by shopping at local supermarkets and markets.

Transportation can also be a significant expense in Milan. Public transportation is a convenient and relatively affordable means of getting around the city. A daily ticket costs around 4.50 euros, while a monthly pass is approximately 35 euros. It’s worth mentioning that cycling is highly developed in Milan, as the city aims to reduce car traffic. Bicycle rentals are available throughout Milan at very reasonable prices, thanks to the city’s initiatives.
