18 Pictures of Expo Milan 2015 That Will Make You Want to Go

Check out these 18 photos of Expo Milan 2015, discover our recommendations, and prepare your visit.

We recently tested the Evening Ticket for the Universal Expo in Milan. Although we recommend spending more than an evening to grasp the full extent of the site, a few hours are enough to discover the Expo’s highlights. Here’s a preview of our itinerary:

On a sunny evening, we caught the Red Line at Duomo Square and safely made our way to the Expo entrance where we were welcomed by bilingual organizers. Right after the security check, we found ourselves in a sea of Italian students and visitors from all over the world.

 

The first thing that catches your eye is the imposing and dashing Pavilion Zero, which is a great introduction to the theme of the Expo: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. With enormous screens and huge scale models, this Pavilion tells us about the History of Humanity and its relationship with the animal and vegetal world. Do not miss it!

 

The Universal Expo is divided into 140 Pavilions of various architectures. Unfortunately, some Pavilions close up in the evening so we suggest getting there early enough to see as many things as possible.

The Azerbaijan Pavilion will amaze you with its magnificent spheres. It is the result of three Italian architects and will be transported to Baku at the end of the Expo because it can be taken completely apart.

Don’t miss the China Pavilion with its theme Land of Hope, Food for Life. The beautiful flowerbeds and the traditional, yet modern, Chinese architecture make it a very unique Pavilion to visit.

When you enter the Kuwait Pavilion, however, you discover a black room where an electric storm is simulated and symbolizes a country where the shortage of water is a major issue.

In the mood for some Mediterranean cuisine? The Turkish Pavilion welcomes you with its restaurant and bazar where tasty local and traditional food can be found.

When we reached the Slovakia Pavilion, we gave in to a moment of farniente. Some computers and cell phone chargers are available as well as some couches for visitors to rest on.

To spice up your evening a little, try one of the free cocktails at the Russia Pavilion and take in the contemporary design of the building’s semi-transparent façade.

If you’re still hungry, head over to the Holland Pavilion where you’ll be able to quench your thirst with a light beer. Try some local specialties such as stamppot, smoked herring, Edam cheese, waffles, and more. YUMMY!

Embark on a long journey to the Ecuador Pavilion and explore its main theme, Journey to the Center of Life, a tribute to Darwin’s trip to the Galapagos Islands.

As the end of the evening drew near, we strolled about the Italian regional Pavilions which display some of their local wonders such as Lombardy’s racing cars…

…or Sicily’s heavenly scenery.

By nightfall, don’t miss the Tree of Life near the Italy Pavilion as well as the sound and light show that will dazzle the crowd and close off a very pleasant evening.
