Cart and I will be going to Milan in November. Though Milan is mostly known as a fashion capital, we’d probably have to give that, as well as the Milan fashion week, a miss.
TED conferences are about sharing ideas on changing the world, and topics could range from technology to culture. Initially, these conferences are only limited to a select group, with entry fee said to cost a shocking 6 k USD and limited to just one thousand people, but thankfully it’s been opened for viewing online for the rest of us.
By the way, if you havent watched any TED conference yet, do start with this one by Majora Carter about sustainable urban areas. I find it very inspiring!
But apart from attending the TEDx, of course, I’m looking forward to exploring the rest of Milano. I’m sure there will be plenty of lovely things to see. Firstly the beautiful Lake Como, made very famous from Star Wars episode 2.
Maybe we’d visit La Scala, which is said to be the most renowned opera and ballet theatre in the world.
We probably wouldn’t be seeing Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper. Even though it’s months to November, it seems that regular entry tickets are all sold out till January. The only tickets available are through agencies, which charges you 50 euro when it’s normally 6 euro to see a museum.
But anyway, I’m sure that no trip to Milano would be complete without visiting the Duomo, one of the biggest cathedral in the world.
I’m really looking forward to seeing Milan 🙂
