When the classes are over for the week, students have the opportunity to travel and explore Europe through the Glion excursions. Just a short journey away from our Swiss campuses are some of the continent’s most famous cities, offering history, culture and endless shopping! Glion Ambassador, Sofiya, tells us about her trip to Milan.

The aroma of a fresh-brewed cappuccino while roaming the streets and devouring the pulse of the world’s fashion capital…what can be better on a Saturday morning? Thanks to Glion, students can enjoy their weekend in Milan and get away from a busy study routine.

Even though some people have a belief that Milan is nothing more than shopping stores and plenty of shades of gray, I doubt it. The variety of activities that can make your journey unforgettable ranges from visiting cultural heritage sites and getting ‘on top’ of Milan (The Duomo Terrace), to watching a football match at San Siro stadium.

Over the Alps for some retail therapy

Today, Glion offers around 10 travel-related excursions per semester and the demand rises for one of the most popular destinations of Europe. It was not the first time I have joined a Milan school trip, yet it never fails to impress me. There in Milan, one thing is for sure – retail therapy. As cliché as this sounds, shopping is the key to every girl’s heart and this is true!

For all the shopaholics of Glion: via Montenapoleone and Quadrilatero della Moda is definitely for you. Especially when it comes to times right before midterm exams, projects’ submission and you need to relieve stress. A trip to Milan sounds like a perfect solution, right? If you want to be a part of forthcoming amazing journeys with Glion, stay tuned! More destinations, more memories, more fun!
