The pair attended an event in Italy held by jewelry brand Swarovski earlier this week and utilized their free time to explore local attractions. They visited the streets of Milan’s Brera district, notable for its historical buildings such as the 15th-century Santa Maria del Carmine Church, the 18th-century Palazzo Castiglioni designed by architect Giuseppe Piermarini, and the Galleria del Corso shopping area, which features luxury brands like Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton.

They also strolled through Via Madonnina Street, a 200-meter-long pedestrian zone famous for its upscale fashion boutiques, art galleries, and eateries.

The couple visited the Taverna del Borgo Antico, a restaurant dating back to 1910, popular among both locals and tourists. Known for their culinary curiosity, Ha and Nguyen sampled various Italian dishes, including ravioli with a classic tomato sauce.

This traditional Italian pasta, made from thin dough, can be filled with ingredients like beef, pork, chicken, cheeses, or vegetables, and served in styles such as boiled, baked, or fried. Accompaniments can include pesto, cream, or herbs.

During their meal, they also had raw oysters and bread with butter.

Additionally, they visited a pasta restaurant where they tried hand-made spaghetti served with a cream, cheese, and cured meat sauce.

Their trip also included a visit to Florence, where they explored the area around the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. This main church of Florence, known for its striking Gothic architecture and stained-glass windows, was started in 1296 and completed in 1436. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a key cultural and religious landmark.

Ha, 38, began her entertainment career at 16 and has reduced her on-screen appearances since marrying Louis in 2012.

Louis, 41, is the second son of luxury retail mogul Jonathan Hanh Nguyen, founder of IPPG, a conglomerate that collaborates with leading international luxury brands in the Vietnamese market, including Rolex, Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Burberry, and Versace.
