Milan tends to get quite a bit of haterade out there from those who feel it’s just another city and nothing special. Too bad for them, because I find Milan to be one of the most fabulous spots in all of Italy for a variety of reasons. Besides the amazing fashion, intricate and friendly locals and incredible boutique and restaurant scene, people are constantly riding super-vintage cool bikes.
Not only do the locals ride bikes wearing fashionable outfits like capes and stiletto heels, their bikes are certainly not boring mountain bikes. Most seem to be funky, antique banana-seat or 70’s road bikes, which makes everything seem all the more awesome. Plus, what many don’t know is that Milan has a canal district, the Navigli area, similar to Venice or Amsterdam, which is the perfect spot to sport your hipster bike.
This started by me snapping a few photos of some bikes around the city and ending with a full-on love affair for la bicicletta in Milano. I hope you enjoy the photos of these bikes and their lovely Italian surroundings as much as I do!
Adesso…andiamo a fare un giro in bicicletta per Milano!!!
