MILAN – Luxury Travel Guide by Alux.com

October 24, 2019


Hi there! My name is Emil Anton and I’m
the founder of Alux.com And today, we’re in Milan! *Epic Music* MILAN Essentials
by Alux.com Milan is the fashion capital of the
world! I believe that everyone should visit Milan at least once in their lives, because frankly, you’ll never look at another city the same way after you’ve
visited Milan And ohh.. They make a pretty decent cup of coffee! Bongiorno! One thing to remember, when in Italy, is that locals drink their coffee standing up by the bar If you’re outside, that’s a clear sign you’re a tourist
and be prepared to pay extra. Now that we had our coffee, it’s time to
start exploring this incredible city and what better place to start with, then
with the Duomo itself! So what exactly are the best ways to enjoy the Duomo? Well..
You can look at it from the outside! You can explore it from the inside! You can sit on top of it! Or.. You can stand here and touch this leg! You know, for good luck! Jokes aside, this building took nearly 600 years to complete and even today it’s a little bit under construction It’s the type of thing you did back in the day to impress the Germans & the Austrians It’s the building with the most statues in the world right now! Once inside, make sure you walk all around the Duomo and enjoy the stained glass depicting Biblical scenes Fun to see and hard to miss
*Illuminati confirmed* are the incredibly huge harmonica and the replica of the golden statue called “Madonina” That sits on top of the Duomo. On your list should also be the most famous statue in the cathedral The one of St. Bartholomew holding his skin on his shoulders like a stole. Once you’re on top of the Duomo,
you get to enjoy the skyline of this incredible city and also you get to peek at the little people walking in front of it just to give you a sense of the scale of the thing. If you want to help with the rehabilitation of the place and have deep enough pockets to donate at least 100,000 EUR you get to adopt one of the statues on top of it! and in exchange, you get your name engraved at the bottom of it! Throughout the years,
various artists snuck statues that don’t belong there Challenge: Try to spot as many as possible! Like: the Boxers, the tennis rackets and a couple more that we can’t really show in this video because we still want it monetized! All that walking up and down the Duomo
got us hungry for a snack! But where do you snack in Milan? There’s: Panzerotti from Luini! Pizza from Spontini and a bunch of other places that you get to enjoy! But in the name of all that is heavenly:
Please do not go to McDonalds! Am I the only one getting mad Game of Thrones vibes off of this?! With that out of the way
it’s time to move to our second location and fortunately we don’t have to move very far
because we’re gonna visit the Galleria! Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is literally the first shopping mall in world Today it houses all the luxury brands!
You got Prada; You got Versace and all of them are here; making it one of
the most expensive pieces of real estate int he world! To be in the Galleria, the brands need to
follow strict rules For example: the logos need to be gold on black so they
don’t ruin the aesthetics of the place that combined with the marble floors and
the attention to detail makes this one of the most important pieces of
architecture in the world The Galleria is the central meeting point! So don’t panic when you see it filled with tourists. Unlike the Duomo, it only took 12 years to complete and the result.. is to die for!
At least the architect did.. On the marble floor, right by each exit You’ll find 4 mosaics depicting the main cities of Italy! The wolf is Rome. The lilly is Florence! the bull symbolizes Turin and the red
flag with a white cross is the representation of Milano! Speaking of the bull: They say that if you walk up to it,
place your heel on its testies, and rotate 3 times, you get a year filled with good luck!
So, you might want to give that a shot! A trip to Milan is never complete without visiting one of the most famous Opera houses in the world La Scala I’m currently in the Scala Opera House a must-see when in Milan! The acoustics of this place are incredible and it definitely deserves a visit The place was bombed to ruins in the
Second World War, but only three years it was rebuilt! It’s in booths like these where the Milanese elite, came to gather not to enjoy the opera, but to spend private time with their mistresses and to gamble away! The museum is also included in the price, It’s filled with dope things..
Like this tiny Mozart! Even if you’re not that much into the Opera, names like Verdi Puccini Paganini should ring the bell to you Well, this is the place where they grew their fame! You can’t leave Milan without enjoying a
gourmet Italian dish That’s why today, we’re going to the best of the best: SAVINI
in the Galleria. The prices are astronomically high, but the location is worth it and believe it or not the food tastes amazing! For starters, I went with
the octopus cooked a low temperature caramelized watermelon, lemon zest, smoked lemon cream and Taggiasca olives by far, one of the best tasting octopuses I’ve had in my life and, the Parma ham aged for 18 months with a pan brioche and cherry compote, you gotta try this When in Italy you gotta try the pasta!
We went with a macaroni fresh pasta with basil pesto tomato leaves and founded spring onion and when in Milan, you gotta try the
Milanese risotto! For the main course, we went with duck
breasts with cherry compote founded shallots and potatoes The duck, definitely lives up to the hype. And fish on a bed of mixed vegetables with white sauce For desert, we went with the raspberry mousse which was really good but the real Show-Stopper, was the flambe orange crepes Suzette Something everybody seems to notice when coming at Savini is that the waiters are very rude. The fun thing is, once they realized we’re from ALUX that our dinner will be recorded and posted on our channel They immediately replaced our arrogant waiter with a manager who looked sharp and was a lot friendlier. They went ALL-IN on these crapes, They put up a show and everything in order to make sure we have the best experience possible All in all, we had a great time at Savini The staff got to know us, we got to know the staff and Chef Giovanni Bon, did a phenomenal job.
The food was exquisite! Thank you for watching this special edition of
