  • 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!
