(re)Wandering in Milan: Botanik Dreamin’

This can be seen as an attempt to recover the reality of space and the pleasure of real exploration in the urban context where most of us actually live or travel to. It belongs to a series of personal immersions that are explained and listed here. You can download the GPS track and its tags/waypoints from Google Maps.

Botanik Dreamin’ Trail, Metropolitan City of Milan, Italy

Distance: 4.2 km – Total climb: 15 m – Total descent: 29 m – Duration: 1:11 hrs

From a late 17th century noble villa located in the dreary outskirts of Milan to a botanical museum of dubious existence. The most surreal of all city walks runs along a 4-lane road hovering between life and death. Just try not to panic, okay?

Tags/waypoints reveal the key features of the wandering without being too much of a spoiler. This, like all the other trails, is more enjoyable in good weather and daylight.
