UNDER THE BIGGEST TREES, YOU’LL FIND THE BEST SHELTER (working-class proverb)
Not everyone knows it, but your city has big parks that are easy to reach and that can host you for a whole day without boring you! We are talking about huge parks where it’s possible to run breathlessly, pedal at a supersonic speed, carry your rucksack and spend an entire day outside having fun with your friends, grandparents and relatives… and to get there, you only took the metro! Some of these green spaces are modern, while other ones are part of our tradition. In fact, in some of these parks, you may also find some old still working farmsteads , farms with cows, chickens, horses and goats! So, what are you waiting for setting up a trip into nature?
Are you ready for a super trip? Do you have everything you need? “What?”, you might be wondering… Well, everything you need to cheerfully spend a day in a fantastic park near the city… Parco delle Cave!See the itinerary
This is a Milanese park known to the very few… Not so far from the centre, it maybe goes unnoticed because of its position.
